April has just blossomed and the progress has been amazing. Our sign went up this weekend. That was an exciting moment.
Stage is built. Seats are in. Lighting grid hung. Everything painted. Technical booth built and “tricked out.” Still much to do to put on the finishing touches to the theatre…and get the lobby and greenroom areas ready to open. The work continues…
We are in researsals for our first production in our new home: Glorious! Now THIS is the fun part! An amazing cast of Redwood Curtain “veterans” (in addition to some newcomers): Lynne Wells, Bonnie Halverson, Bob Wells, Pamela Lyall, Larry Pitts, and Elisa Abelleira. Our veteran design team includes Daniel Nyiri, Michael Burkhart, and Jon Turney. It’s like coming home.
Ten years ago we premiered our very first production, with some of these same actors and designers, just a literal “stones’ throw” from our new home. We are thrilled with the response we are getting about our “re-birth” – donations flooding in, and excitement abounds. Occasionally we will see people pop their heads into our new space as we are working…..when they find out it’s us, they are thrilled.
Season brochures are going to press right now and should be in the mail soon, so you can order your season tickets! Our new space is intimate….only about 80 seats….so ordering season tickets is a great idea to make sure you get in to your preferred night.
It’s all overwhelming…what we’ve accomplished, and what we have yet to do before April 29. We are overwhelmed as well with the support and encouragement we continue to receive from our fans.
Thank you, and thank you again.
