Looking ever forward to getting back to work on Tuesday. Rehearsals for The Snow, a new play commissioned by First Stage, Oregon Children's Theater, and Majik Theater, begin! The play is a hilariously witty fairy tale about a young boy's epic journey to save his village. It's an ensemble based piece, with a minimalist aesthetic — so, right up my alley — and we'll be making our own music onstage, so I'll be playing some uke and guitar. Additionally, I'll be the movement consultant, collaborating with director Jeff Frank on puppetry, action sequences, and whatever else we may need.
I've had a month off since A Charlie Brown Christmas, which was much needed time, but I've been itching to work on this piece ever since I read some pages way back in Fall 2013. Plus it's a great group of folks — old friends Karen Estrada and Tim Linn are on board, as well as some folks who are new to me, and a cadre of young performers, ready to rock and roll.
The Snow runs February 26 to March 20. You'll want to see it. More info here
