Amazing!!! Who would believe that on Wednesday night CST would host a costume party for Halloween and our final performance of Dracula, and then turn around strike that set right after the final curtain. Finally, over this past weekend, members constructed the full set for our upcoming production of The Sound of Music. Wow!
There are a lot of people who made this all possible…. the cast and crew of Dracula worked late into the night Wednesday to strike their set. Thank you sooo much for such a great run and for all your extra work!!! We truly appreciate you all. Kudos to Jobeth (director) for a superb job!!!
And then we moved on this weekend to construct the set for Sound of Music…..a lot of hard work and again we appreciate each of you. Special shout out to Jim Henry who took the lead carpenter role this weekend… thank God for that because on Saturday the group that gathered lacked skills in that area. Also we need to thank Eric and Traci Brant (as well as little Lauren and Nick). They gave a full weekend of work even as Traci’s Dad was discharged from the hospital after major heart surgery. It took some juggling but you guys made it happen!
The crew was upbeat and I think we had a pretty great time. Thanks to Stan Christianson, Mike Strayer, Karl Berner, Matt Stinnett, Daena Sisk, and Richard Castleton.
I know this fast turn over happens a lot in the theatre world…. we've seen it plenty of times. But when we pull it off and have fun too….That’s something!!! Thanks to all who helped. And if you are wishing you could be a part of the excitement, watch facebook, the blog, or our emails as we get set to paint our fine set. Hope to see you all soon!
Jonni Pera, Chairman of CST
