It has been a busy winter here at Chez Ploss and Spring and Summer are shaping up to be busy as well.
First, I am directing the classic Sherlock Holmes tale, The Hound of the Baskervilles at the Westport Community Theater. We open the 9th of April. I have been blessed with a virtual who’s who of local talent and am looking forward to a terrific run. For information and tickets see the Westport Community Theatre Website.
Sarah got a part in Into The Woods at Wilton High School. It’s her first show there.
I am looking forward to starting a new program with Wilton Children’s Theater this summer. We have created Summerstage Jr. for kids entering 3rd grade through those entering 6th grades. There are two 9 day sessions and a revue at the end for parents. Our goal is to empower younger actors with the skills and confidence needed to perform in groups in front of an audience.
I have also created a new program for students in July called More Time For Art with two of the most amazingly creative people I know. Karen Brooks is one of two full-time phenomenal art teachers that we are blessed with at Miller/Driscoll school and Lisa Neuscheler also known as Mrs. N who is, herself, a creative dynamo. It is an a art camp where we get to do things that the standard 1 hour art class during the school year. We have so many fun projects planned and are looking forward to spending a couple weeks creating with my friends both under and over five feet tall. More info and registration form here.
All of these plus getting ready for the Fall Wilton Children’s Theater show, which by the way is Bye Bye Birdie; trying to finish a novel; trying to finish another two children’s books; deal with turning fifty and enjoy summer.
So…see you around.
