Romeo and Juliet

Rehearsals proceed apace.

This crowd does, however, need constant reminders that it is a TRAGEDY.

Amy Lewis and Jessica Rowland are playing Mercutio and Tybalt, respectively. Andy Brown is the Friar. Susan Poe Dickson is the Nurse, and the Capulets are Richard Dodwell and Linda Myers. Gene Storey is Lord Montague. Sean Hunter is Paris and Chandra is Abram and the Apotecary. Trey Deason and CiCi Barone are in the title rôles. For anyone in the area who has seen or worked with these actors before, I don't need to tell you that they are just the tip of the iceberg of the intelligence, wit, and general smart-assedness of this cast. The rest of the cast, I have not worked with before, but all--David Dunlap, Ryan Chody, Rylie Brown, Megan Henderson and Danielle McClinton, are showing disturbing inklings of similar tendencies.

To be brief, it's hard to get though a rehearsal without collapsing in howling laughter.

I LOVE this!

I think we all know that we are laughing now so we can be serious later...
