From Artistic Director Jim Coleman
There’s a lot of excitement around the theatre these days!
The Odd Couple is nearing its opening date and goes into tech rehearsals this weekend. Rehearsals are going very well, and the participants are having a wonderful time bringing Neil Simon’s comic masterpiece to life. Every day I look at the set
progress, new things have appeared, almost as if by magic.
But we know it’s not magic! Our technical department is working very hard along with our tireless volunteers Larry Streeter, Dave Morlan, Brian Johnson, and Mike Ferrero. Painting and texturing are coming along and it all looks great! Please be sure to look for Lori Gilbert’s preview article in The Stockton Record next week.
42ND Street has started rehearsals, and everybody is tapping away. A great big “thank you” to Elaine Orimo and her Stockton Ballet School for providing dance rehearsal space until The Odd Couple opens. It would be difficult to have tap dancing practice at the theatre with a play rehearsal in progress on the stage. Tapping is loud and would be disruptive, so we are very thankful to Elaine for the use of her studio.
It’s hard to believe that these are the final two shows of our current Season.
It seems like yesterday that the Season started. Where does the time go?
