Building Steam toward Midsummer

Bicycle wheel rims donated by Buck's waiting in the shop to be added to the Midsummer Steampunk-style set.Things are moving along on the big event - Shakespeare in the Park. Sunday several of our cast members were present to help with the detail work needed for our Steampunk version of A Midsummer Night's Dream premiering in just seventeen days at Valparaiso's Central Park Plaza's Porter Health Amphitheatre. There is so much left to do that we're welcoming any help we can get with everything from building of the sets walls, to cutting out gears that will represent trees and forest structures, assembling costumes to bringing in old clock faces and mechanical parts... The list goes on. Our lead set builder can also use help during days at Chicago Street if anyone has mornings free or a community service log they need filled out. Mel's been working over time to bring the set design to life. 

Despite missing some cast members, our rehearsals are going wonderfully. There is some awesome comedy work being done by our cast as we begin developing and sequencing the scenes for the show. Although we are still slightly behind on our set needs, the players have definately stepped up their game this week to deliver what I believe will be an extremely funny show. 

If you've got time or junk you think we might be able to use for the production feel free to stop on by the theatre. Our big build days are Sunday after 1PM and Mel is usually around mornings after ten. Any help or time you can spare is always appreciated.
