I have amazingly great news which makes me all sorts of giddy inside for R&J. I have just talked to a friend of mine who is certified in stage combat, and he has agreed to choreograph a really big fistfight for us for the show! (the fight in question will be the first big brawl after the "thumb biting" incident.) Just imagine four guys start a fight and every other guy in the cast (and maybe some girls) jump in to help out the side they're rooting for.

I like stage violence way too much.

And now for something completely different.

Well...I just had a meeting with the school administration this morning to go over an expansion of the theatre program at SHS, and as long as I can make the timing work out, it looks like we're going to see a plethora of new events this fall. Along with student playwriting (of which a small group of students has already begun work--if you're interested in playwriting and in ITS, leave a comment, and I'll give you info), we'll be having a student written/student directed festival of one act plays, Bi-weekly theatre workshops on Saturday mornings, and of course, the big enchilada--the trip to the PA Thespian Festival (whooo!)

I'm excited...but now I've got a lot of work to do!
