This stuff has been crazy. We are a few weeks away from NAMT, and rehearsals are right around the corner. We have a series of rehearsals, 29 hours total before we are a go. Our music director is Matthew Webb, and our director will be Victoria Bussert, the department chair of the incredible theatre program at Baldwin-Wallace. She has helped us out by finding a bunch of great actors for the cast whom are BW alumni. Not to mention she’s a damn good director and a real nice lady. I also get three musicians for the festival, we talked real nice to the NAMT committee. Guitar, Joe Young (mandolin, banjo, guitar, superhero) and Nick (percussion).
So… The cast….
Jonathan Jensen (Ball State ’10)
WALLACE – Steele Burkhardt (Nat’l Tour HAIR)
EMORY – Corey Mach (HANDS ON A HARDBODY)
IRENE – Kate Rockwell (BRING IT ON)
PEARLY – Rachel Ferrera
CATHERINE – Emily Behny (Nat’l Tour BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, Ball State ’10)
JACK – Brian Sutherland
HOLLENBACH – Steve Routman
And not to drop a bomb, but, this is the only way to end the blog.
