Dun-Dun-DUNNNNNN! Opening Night is upon us! We are just a few tickets from selling out and we've received excellent coverage in the local papers:
Juneau Empire: http://juneauempire.com/art/2011-09-22/season-33-perseverance-kicks-first-pla....Tn0DDrLlapp
Captial City Weekly: http://www.capitalcityweekly.com/stories/092111/ae_888595830.shtml
We've been busy putting the last details together, apperaing on local radio shows, etc. The preview audiences have really been enjoying the show and we are all excited for Opening Night!
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Art Rotch, Executive Artistic Director at Perseverance in allowing me this opportunity and for welcoming me home. It feels really, really good to be here.
Working with this cast over the last weeks has been super-thrilling and they made my job extremely fun. I'm proud of them and the work we've done and I am looking forward to sitting in the audience tonight and just sharing this grand experience with them.
Also, the entire design team and technical crew - thanks for making this journey a fun one. This show is crazy and required everyone to stretch right here at the beginning of the season and I'm forever grateful.
And one more pubic shout-out to my Stage Manager - Nikki Dawson! She's been pure joy and it's been a blast working with her on this show! Let's do it again soon Nikki!
One last thing: Our 39 Steps sticker contest winner: Christy Terry! Well Done! Here's a few photos! She won 2 season tickets. You can still find stickers and win other prizes: http://perseverancetheatre.org/shows/39steps-chase.html
And just as I was finishing this post, Nancy Hemenway, one of our board members, brought us 39 cupcakes to celebrate our opening!
