Wow, we had a great first day in the rehearsal hall at The Acting Company on Bank street. It is so wonderful to see an entire cast return for the 3rd annual panto at The Gladstone Theatre I guess they all had so much fun in last year’s Freezing – Bigger, Bolder… Colder, that they had to come back for more.
Mounting a show from scratch is an amazing feat. There are two productions that we would like to point out that have recently taken off that were created from scratch. Ghost Light written and performed by Shawn Wright and Come From Away by Irene Sankoff and David Hein.
Now, we are not creating a show about the stories of our mother or 911 but we are creating something new. A twist on the old Wizard of Oz. We are bringing some new music written by Jonathan Evans and a new script by Ken MacDougall. We look forward to sharing more with you over the next couple of weeks as we get The Blizzard of Oz onto its feet.
