This week we start rehearsals for the final production of our 5th Season at the Williamston Theatre! Our 30th production! That’s amazing. As we get deep into planning next season we are, as all professional not-for-profit theatres are, working to keep the doors open – this is nothing new, but I’m constantly being reminded how lucky I am to work with the fine people that I do, in a job that I love doing.
Speaking of our 30th production, And The Creek Don’t Rise by Joseph Zettelmaier, we had the first reading last night, and it’s going to be a LOT of fun. Our invited audience of donors really enjoyed themselves – this is a fun, touching piece and I can’t wait for our audiences to get in here!
In other good news, the Detroit Tigers have moved into First Place in the Central Division! Baseball fans, you know what I’m talking about!! And the games against Cleveland this week are fun, because it’s Cleveland that they just knocked OUT of First Place! 🙂 Sure, it’s only June, and there’s a LOT of baseball left to play… but it’s things like this that make the regular season so fun.

And for those who like this sort of thing, the Green Lantern movie comes out on Friday! As a comic fan, a fan of the Justice League, and a big Green Lantern fan, I can’t wait! The 12-year old boy in me can’t WAIT to see this movie! 🙂
