Jack and the Magic Beans had it’s final performance today at the Mary Glass Performing Arts Center in Owasso. It’s always bittersweet to see a show wrap up, but it’s a vital part of this whole “live-theatre” thing. Nothing lasts forever, but we learn from it and grow with it and move on.
Auditions for the next show I’m directing, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, were held today. This is Clark Theatre’s 27th year of this classic production. I spent nine years in the production myself as a kid. Today was an out of body experience to be behind the table – almost like time was folding in on itself. Was it really that long ago?
I’ll make calls for callbacks tomorrow, but I’m also inviting those who couldn’t make it to today’s audition to join us. That means some of my Jack cast will come out – can’t wait to see what they bring to the table. The final cast list will be notified and posted by Tuesday – our first read through is on Thursday.
Callbacks are Monday night at 7 pm at the Henthorne PAC. Looking forward to seeing you there.
