Theatre

Recently concluded directing “Meet the Bigots… Er, I Mean Parents” at the annual high school edition of the ICC 24 Hour Plays.  This was by far and long one of my favorite theatre experiences ever.  I have always said that I absolutely love the 24 Hour Plays, and this marks my 5th appearance at them in various capacities (and it certainly won’t be the last).  This time, I got to direct the show written by Asa Walker of Labette County High School.  Let me tell you, for high school kids, I couldn’t have been more proud of how they stepped up and and put together a phenomenal show in such a short amount of time.  Nerves or not, they nailed the performance, as did everyone else.  I honestly wouldn’t have expected such good plays and good shows from high schoolers at an event like that.

I’m currently looking for places to submit my one-act, Dave, for production. If you would be interested, please see the link below to inquire. I just finished my first reading of Freefall after Marisol finished, and am preparing the first rewrite on it to lengthen it and improve the plot arc. See the links below if you want to contact me about my plays. I’m also beginning work on a full length comedy, which I’ll be sharing parts of soon.
