This has been a good week, but an ordinary one in many respects.
- A great week of lessons with six new students…
- Tons of reading and research
- Basic house cleaning items
- 63-degree weather one day, 22-degrees the next day
- a new member was added to the family
Last night we ventured next door to the high school to see the winter play, FATHER OF THE BRIDE.
PHOTO Tonight, we head out to Wright State University to see 1913: THE GREAT DAYTON FLOOD. This play was written by WSU Theatre/Dance chair, W. Stuart McDowell and Timothy Nevitts about 15 years ago, and is being revamped to commemorate the 1913 Great Dayton Flood.
Tomorrow night, we head to Centerville to see YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU. Centerville High School’s Theatre Department, is, without challenge, the best theatre program in The Miami Valley. It is amazing what strong adult leadership, instruction, and direction can create with these young, extremely talented students. Mike Cordonnier’s set design, from the photographs I’ve seen, is outstanding. Although I professional quality sets from this exceptionally creative gentleman, I still marvel at each production’s set(s).
The next few weekends, we will attend other productions:
- BUS STOP – Centerville High School’s student produced/directed production
- LOMBARDI – The Human Race Theatre Company
- JOSEPH & THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT – Cedarville University
- THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST – Dayton Playhouse
It is great to live in The Miami Valley where theatre thrives, however, it is always a challenge in juggling the schedule when they tend to hit on the same weekends!
