I know I haven’t updated much lately and I’m hoping to change that and start updating on a regular basis, but i say that everytime I go through one of these stretches of little to no posting.
This summer was a busy theater summer for me. I performed in Hays Community Theatre’s production as “Into The Woods”, I followed that up by acting in and serving as a consultant to Phillips County Community Theatre’s production of “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer: The Musical”. There is a bit of irony to this, as when both of these shows opened on Broadway the great Tom Aldredge created two roles, in “Into The Woods” he was the Narrator/Mysterious Man and in “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer: The Musical” he was Muff Potter. I performed as both the Mysterious Man and Muff Potter in the two productions I was involved in. So that was a bit of irony but also a treat as Aldredge remains one of my favorite performers. The day we closed “Tom Sawyer”. I began production of the radio play I wrote and directed called “Murder AT Home” for the feature “Sherri’s Playhouse” heard on the podcast “Chatting With Sherri”. As soon as that aired, I almost immediately began writing a new radio style play of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”. I knocked out a 70 page, first draft in less than a week. I followed that up with another appearance on “Chatting With Sherri” this past Tuesday (the 23) to discuss theatre and my collection of plays, “Based on The…” (available now from Black Box Theatre Publishers).
So overall it’s been a busy time for me, I am hoping to blog a little more often, perhaps on my journey through editing, revising and hopefully producing A Christmas Carol.
Til the next blog,
