So much good news today!
Very excited to announce that the application for THE NIGHT WITCHES to join the 2019 Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival was approved! We're going to the Fringe, baby!
It's been a goal of the Egyptian Youtheatre‘s artistic director, Jamie Wilcox, to take a show on the road for some time now, so when I pitched THE NIGHT WITCHES the plan was to bring it down to Salt Lake in some fashion. I've been writing the show with a simple set in mind, not knowing exactly where this on-the-road production would take place. The Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival was our number one choice to make a traveling show happen, and we are ecstatic that we made it in!
After the weeklong workshop this July we will jump straight into auditions, then casting, and a few days later rehearsals. We'll have two weeks to get the show ready with the Fringe, which kicks off August 1st. I won't have specific dates or a venue for a bit, but you better believe I will announce that loud and clear once I know all those details.
The reading this week went so well, it was great to hear my new pages and to get a sense of where I need to focus my attention to get ready for the workshop. I can't wait to dive in and kick this script into shape during the workshop with my brilliant director, Andra Harbold, and our fantastic stage manager, Sammee Jackman. It's a total dream team!
Stay tuned for more info about this world premiere production!
Is it summer yet???
