Goodbye and Hello


After yesterday’s matinee performance we struck the set, packed the props, collected the costumes, and swept the floor.  We’ve now officially said goodbye to “Ruddigore.”

We say a lot of goodbyes in the theater.

First we invest our time, energy, hearts, and souls into building a production. Then it miraculously assumes a life of its own and we breathe along with it during each adrenaline-fueled performance.  But the final curtain eventually comes down and, in an instant, it simply vanishes.  There’s nothing else to do but pick up the pieces and move on.

Luckily, we also say a lot of hellos in the theater.

Hello to a new script.  Hello to a new cast.  Hello to starting the process all over again.

There’s already a lot of buzz about next year’s production of “The Mikado”.

Hope to see you then!
