We have been following rehearsals in the blog, but of course production is back and hard at work as well. Joining us full time this summer is Drew Becker. Drew and Krista have begun the task of putting The Bluest Water set back up. They have begun to pull platforms, configure seating, and have brought out our fencing that we used as railings last year.
Drew also has the major project of working on a temporary rigging fix to the space before Dan (who arrives today) can re-hang and focus the lighting for the show. JD, our TD from last year will be returning to help us with the rigging fix and will also be around for advice and help with the new/old set construction.
Ryan Clark our Midsummer Night's Dream director arrived in town yesterday. He hit the ground running and met with Sally and Krista for about an hour about set and costumes for the show. Ryan is bringing some great ideas and a wonderful energy to the table. We are very excited to have him join us.
Drew, Krista, Dan, and Sally have the challenge this year of balancing three shows. They are incredible though and I have no doubt they will pull it off. Stay tuned as we watch all three shows take physical shape!
