Had the complete joy to visit Street Theatre Company tonight, meet my director, Elaina McKnight Shaver, and sit in on a rehearsal of ICHABOD. What a treat! While the show is going up in Nashville, I'm from central Ohio. About seven hours and one time-zone away, it's hard for me to get down to Nashville with any frequency. Happily, as you may have read in my August 17, 2013 post, I'm also working with Tennessee Rep this season and that opportunity has provided me with the chance to visit Nashville while ICHABOD is in rehearsals.
Visiting STC tonight, I watched as they worked through the end of Act I and top of Act II. They're still early in the process, but already, these kids are working hard (and props to Elaina for directing such a large cast with finesse and ease). They're asking question about their characters and showing the professionalism one comes to expect from grown actors.
I'm even more excited to see the show next month than I already was now that I've stepped foot in the space. That whole "putting your trust in a creative team" is paying off. It really is finally setting in that this production is happening. Awesome feeling.
Ichabod: Missing in Sleepy Hollow runs October 4-12 at Street Theatre Company in Nashville, TN. Directed by Elaina McKnight Shaver. Tickets are $7 and this show is spooky fun for the whole family. You can find more information at STC's website or by calling 615.554.7414.
Thoughts. From my brain. Anything to do with how we tell stories and the stories we tell each other. Literally and figuratively.
