Well, 2023 went by much quicker than I expected. While CPMP was not able to present a show during 2023, I did take a stroll on the boards after a 5-year hiatus, playing Mrs. Hubbard in the LPO Rep production of Murder on the Orient Express. It was pure joy working with the talented and exuberant cast! And the director Tim Bangle was amazing.
I have continued to work on my screenplay with Producer Peyton Collins and writer Lydia Genner. The film process is arduous, and moves at a snails pace, and you know me I go fast! So I am learning to be patient. (Not really)
I am currently in the midst of directing the Angels Over Sandpoint Production of The Follies. This the 20th year of the production and my 8th year directing.
We had a table read of a play we are considering for later this year. We shall see....
So far in 2023, I wrote the adaptation of ProVoice Project, which was a complete success! You can find more information about the on going project here- https://www.theprovoiceproject.com/
I also had the privilege of once again directing the 2023 Follies for The Angels Over Sandpoint. This was the 19th year of the risque, racy and ridiculous show that cures "shacky whacky" syndrome in North Idaho. More info here
But the most important thing I am working on is a screenplay. I have partnered with Voyage Media working toward the having the comedy produced for the big screen. We are currently in the "polish" stage for the script. It is sure to be a fun ride.
Locally we want to transition from theater productions (solely because of the lack of affordable venues) into dinner theater and other entertainment events. In talks with other local venues to facilitate those new events. The first one is coming right up at the end of Sept. More on that soon.
All in all just looking to spread joy and laughter, as Cade always did!
