Moving On...

Waking up on Saturday morning... and no rehearsal! It was a strange feeling not to be dashing off to work, and yet it was rather nice to sit still for a couple of hours over a cup of coffee and NPR.

THE BROTHERS GRIMM SPECTACULATHON went very well all week long. I found it particularly interesting to see how much the kids grew in the roles as the week went along, from the sheer nervousness of Monday's show to the hamminess (but not too much) on Friday. It was also very interesting to hear different the audiences were each day! Thursday evening, when the adults greatly outnumbered the children, there was much more laughter at the spoken jokes, and not quite as much for the visual (slapstick) jokes.

I loved doing this, and love the roses they gave me (& Brittney, and Donna & Kaitlyn & Katie), and will miss them pretty seriously.

Now, we're ready to move forward with the next events. Coming up in April is our Buble to Bocelli concert featuring Mitch Seekins and his ensemble. I've spent a lot of time on the phone recently with Mitch - what a sweetie! We're thrilled he's coming and know that audiences will enjoy the shows.

The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon!

We've rehearsed every Saturday, and a few afternoons during the week, learningour lines and our blocking. We've struggled with speed and volume. We've learned to break the fourth wall. We've learned to listen. We've become an acting ensemble.

We're Ready!

The Youth Theatre Experience is inviting you - yes, you! - to attend a performance of THE BROTHERS GRIMM SPECTACULATHON March 15, 16, 17, or 19 at 2:00pm or March 18 at 7:00pm at the Stirling Theatre in beautiful downtown Stirling.

This is theatre by kids, for kids, and by kids, we mean anyone who can laugh and clap and just plain enjoy kids having fun being kids.

No Grinches need come.

Please 613.395.2100 to order your tickets today!
