Although Wily West has been dark the last several months, we have also been busy busy busy back here behind the curtain. We are in the thick of our 2014 pre-season activities and having a blast. In late fall we had our semi-annual company retreat, welcomed new members Jason Jeremy, Jennifer Roberts, and Ellen Chesnut and finalized our 2014 season. It was an embarrassing love-fest, filled with so much excitement we could barely contain ourselves. In case you didn't know, Morgan, Quinn, Wes, Brady, Kat, Jason, Ellen, Jennifer, and yours truly are all awesome and we decided all of you are too. It was a unanimous vote. Really, I have the flip chart covered in hearts and exclamation points to prove it.
We are *this* close to finishing up the casting for Stuart Bousel's EVERYBODY HERE SAYS HELLO! which will be directed by Rik Lopes and will run in rep with SUPERHEROES in July/August. The short list is pretty impressive and exciting for this multilayered character piece.
Quinn Cayabyab and Ellen Chesnut along with our directors have been conjuring magical and amazing design concepts for all of the shows, which will feature some pretty cool things that will be dynamic and interesting to see up on stage.
Jason and I went to see Cutting Ball's RISK IS THIS series closer EX MACHINA on Saturday the 29th. And various company members have theatre dates to see TOP GIRLS, MEDEA, RAT GIRL, ARMS AND THE MAN, THE CRUCIBLE, DIVAS TELL ALL and more!
The company is also looking forward to going to the gala in May to support Morgan Ludlow and Ryan Hayes for their Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle nominations for last summer's GORGEOUS HUSSY!
Say hi when you see us around and have a great spring!
