Calling All Stage Carpenters!

Uptown Players is looking for carps.

Contact Dennis Canright.  (Or me, and I'll pass you on.)

Bonus, you'd get to build my design for End of the Rainbow.  Woohoo!

Opening Night

Tonight is the opening for my latest show, Kitchen Dog Theater's regional premier of I'm Gonna Pray for You so Hard, by Halley Feiffer (directed by Lee Trull).

A fun show for me because I got to create - then trash - a nice cozy little Laura Ashley style NYC breakfast nook.  Or, rather, as one character triumphantly declares it, "an eat-in kitchen!"

Design and sketch by Clare Floyd DeVries, copyrighted of course

Besides adding clutter, there's a certain amount of "aging" which includes those lightly grubby marks where hands touch door or window frames and a little "roof leak" which helps explain my poor wallpapering... it's not lack of paperhanging skills it's a fictional moisture problem!  (So not my fault, right?)

Come n' see!  Excellently acted.

My earlier Clever Little Lies is still playing at Circle Theatre too.  Great reviews.

Or, if a theater - even in Fort Worth - isn't far enough out for you... how about Mars?  Or Europa?  NASA and JPL have just released absolutely Gorgeous! travel posters to space destinations, free, HERE.
