Why, hello again! I’m so pleased to be back in Ohio just as we start rolling over to fall. I’ve just returned from my summer tour with the Missoula Children’s Theatre and The Jungle Book. Tour partner Heather Baker and I had a wonderful time journeying through Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Kansas, and Nebraska – meeting a score of delightful young actors who embodied jungle
creatures with gusto! Plus we survived wildfires, hurricane warnings, and temperatures that reached up to 122 degrees. In other words, we had quite the adventure. It was a little sad to bid the MCT folks farewell at the end of the season, but I’m pretty sure our paths will cross again soon.
While I’m home I’m stepping in to Lebanon Theatre Company’s production of A Catered Affair. My father tells me I’m becoming a theatrical paratrooper – by which he means I’m good at flying in to offer last-minute help – but I was too glad to join this beautiful piece created by some of my favorite writers! If you aren’t familiar with the show, check out this video and you’ll be hooked. We start tech rehearsals tomorrow for a run Sept. 9-18. More information is available here.
