So much good stuff coming up at work

Some weeks are pretty darned great, y’know?   This week I got to have an amazing 1st Production Meeting with the team for Pulp.  Rehearsals start in about 5 weeks, and I can’t wait!  I LOVE the beginning of a project when you’re working with a great production staff – the excitement, the ideas bouncing around, the energy – such a good time for digging into the work.

Not only did I have that meeting, but I had a great playwright meeting for Rights Of Passage, the other show I’m directing this fall, and I’m feeling super enthusiastic and energized about the project, and the direction it’s headed in.  I’ll be directing this show at the Jewish Ensemble Theatre, and can’t wait to work with the great cast.

Heard from the amazing David Blixt at Sordelet Ink, and very shortly we will get the proofreading copies of our Williamston Theatre Anthology Of New Plays: VOLUME II, so in another few weeks we’ll have copies of both volumes available for sale!  PS – To buy VOLUME I, click here!

And today (a little later than normal because of REASONS) we finally were able to nail down the last cast member of our 2016-2017 season, so not only is the whole season cast and staffed, but we just finalized our brochure and it’s off to the printer.

So – for your viewing pleasure – here are some screenshots I took of some of the brochure pages.  Here’s what we’ve got coming up!

SO MUCH great stuff happening – lots to be grateful for.  I hope you’re finding all the things in YOUR day to celebrate and enjoy.  🙂

What a great time to be a Dad.  I am more and more impressed with my amazing kids every day.  Why?  Let me tell you…

*Last week, at lunch with my daughter, at Jimmy Johns: Not only did she order the giant Italian Nightclub sub – she had them put hot peppers on it.

*Going to an event where we had to be a little dressy, my 15 year old son asks to borrow a tie.  “Sure – grab one out of my closet”, I say.  Out of the almost 20 ties I have hanging in my closet…. he picks the one with the Starship Enterprise on it.

Parenting Win, Level AWESOME.

Saw a GREAT quote today:

“If you don’t have time for what matters, stop doing things that don’t.”

–  Thanks to Courtney Carver at Be More With Less for sharing it!

Outside Mullingar has been PACKING the audiences in at Williamston Theatre.  What a beautiful script, done beautifully – I’m so proud of the whole team.

I’m looking forward to our upcoming Summer show at Williamston Theatre (The Art of Murder), and I’m amazingly excited for the lineup of our 2015-2016 Season!  For fun, here’s the assortment of logos for the season!
