What a whirlwind! I still wonder how it all went by so quickly. Directing “Once Upon a Rocking Chair” for Northumberland Players this year was definitely a lifetime highlight for me. We had a wonderful review in the local paper and 10/11 performances were SOLD OUT. When I started the process a year ago my wishes for the show were to have fun, to make a story people remembered, and to connect to people.
Here are some pictures of what I loved most about the process…
#1: The Firehall Theatre–this is my favourite type of theatre space.
#2: The talented cast and crew
#3: The gorgeous set
#4: The Caterpillar Princess costume and lighting effects
#5: The energy of the ensemble cast
#6: The humour in the “Aunt Neen’s a love queen” sequence
#7: The emotion of the final scene
#8: The sisters doing yoga
#9: Our Pre-Show “Filling of Our Jar” After Warm-Up
#10: All the friends, family, audience members who took the time to join us
And of course…the poster! This poster has so much meaning for me. It’s my great-Aunt Blanche’s rocker. The landscape is the view where my parents live on Georgian Bay.
