Hello Again Fellow Adventure Seekers,
This last week has been one of the most rewarding and challenging weeks in recent OAT history. We have managed to keep on this break-neck course to bring some wonderful and beautiful depth to Romeo and Juliet. Tonight we attempted our first run and although due to an unexpected nose bleed and a couple little lighting snafus we were able to climb our way into the last scene and just ran out of time before we had to stop. Watching all the characters burst into life before a campfire and behind the glow of gas and propane lanterns is wonderful. It's a spiritual kind of captivating.
I am so beyond proud of this group. I am so blessed to be working with such dedicated and enthusiastic people. Romeo and Juliet is a classic story and this cast and crew has breathed new life and wonderful vitality into the show. Tomorrow night we have our first dress rehearsal and on Wednesday we open to the public. This is going to be a fabulous show and I can't wait to see how it grows over the next week.
"If before we reached our goals we were certain of victory, would we still endeavor to finish strong?"
Until next time my adventure hungry friends,
