Behind the Scenes…

In October, we started up again at The Green School, a public high school in Bushwick. This is our second program at the school, and coming back in we were met with such an awesome and enthusiastic group of students. Guess we did something right last year! I mean, these kids are choreographing scenes on their own during lunch break and after school and then showing us what they’ve done when we meet up! High school kids! They even came in for the program on Election day and didn’t even have to go to school that day. Gotta love it. They are awing me and inspiring me every time we meet up.

As usual, we spent the first couple of weeks focusing on the art of story telling, and developed what is surely our darkest script to date, THE LAST SOUND. We held auditions, cast the play and started rehearsals. We are proud to announce that today, one week before the show, we made it through the entire script. With just ten weeks to write and produce a show, this is HUGE. This is true testament to the hard work these students are putting into it. Aaaannnd….I won’t ruin the ending, but I will say that Mary got a little teary eyed today!

So, as usual, there are many people to thanks…Big Thanks to JAMES THACHER! He is creating the to-die-for projections that will be part of this show. Also, need to thank Jeremy Davies for spearheading the set construction and the dutiful workers, Mads Lynnerup & Stephanie Levy.

This one’s not to be missed, folks. You can tell just by looking at the flier! There’s a little something for everyone… Post apocalyptic New York City, star crossed lovers, battle scenes, trash can drumming, dark visuals, high drama, Doritos! Can’t wait to share it with you.

See you next week!
