children's theatre is something that is near-and-dear to my heart and a genre of theatre that i absolutely love. ryan and i did jack and the beanstalk nearly 20 years ago when we were sophomores in college. the 50+ year tradition of children's theatre at our university was incredible, so we were broken hearted when children's theatre didn't happen for the past several years. after many meetings, lots of planning, and tons of budget crunching, we're thrilled that it's back again this year after too long of a hiatus.
we're honored to be a part of it . . . well, a very big part of it!
i'm directing the show in addition to costume designing. ryan is the university's technical director and production manager, but he's also heavily involved in this show. together, ryan and i are designing the scenery, props, audio, and lights.
noah's been heavily involved too! he's supervising everyone and the students call him their "dance captain!"
noah crashed rehearsal recently and sat on the giant's throne while we were rehearsing the castle scene! we're all really looking forward to this show which is right around the corner!
