Lights, Sound and More in the Blue Ridge!

What a summer it has been, and sadly it is almost over with only a few weeks left. I can honestly say that this has by far been one of the best summers that I can remember. In early Spring I was excited to come to Sweet Briar to start working in the theatre and help with the shows, but what I was not excepting was everything else.

The list is long, and I am sure I will not hit all of them: From intern lunches to barn parties, swimming at the boathouse, Panther Falls and the Piney River with fellow theatre company members to Dan Gallagher’s and Krista Franco’s amazing food. A baseball game on the 4th of July with fireworks including a cookout at the Kershner’s to Wednesday and Saturday night trips to karaoke. The list could go on forever. So much happened outside of theatre, but yet we were still together as the theatre company as one.

At the same time though so much happened inside. Four great shows were produced, and now as we are in the run on 12th Night and Assassins is mostly struck as of today, the end of the summer is close. I am sure that I speak for all of us here that we are not ready to leave and go back to what we refer to as “home” because right now Endstation is home to us. When we do leave, we still will have the memories of the great, wonderful summer that was this past summer. We all worked together to get here and now looking back we can see that all of the hard work has more than paid off.

As a final goodbye and an understanding of some of the experiences I had this summer, below is a slideshow of pictures of work from both Assassins and 12th Night. Also included are photos of all the great times we shared together experiencing the wonderful places the Blue Ridge has to offer.
