As part of this - they hired a local playwright to write a dinner theater script based on events that may have happened historically at the Barracks building. They needed a director, and a cast and the playwright (who I had happened to direct before) put the Trust in touch with me. And a great working relationship has been the result!
The first dinner theater event was a HUGE success at an annual event last October along with shows open to the public. We even did a second run of the show in June! Then again this past month I got the chance to direct another great project about the life and legacy of Mother Joseph.
In each of these projects I have had the chance to work with casts that I love and admire, local playwrights and a fantastic bunch of people at the Fort. Love, love, love this opportunity! I am looking forward to many more projects! Here are some picture highlights to enjoy!
