I used to keep a file labeled "hate mail"...it kept me level! Thanks for sharing and godspeed with your theatrical endeavors. Respectfully, ...

We had a lot of fun with The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940. Unit set...with some surprises and a bevy of fun characters. We cast a male as Helga and they were a hoot. Lots of great options.

Hi Gai, Always enjoy you posts! Anyway, so many wonderful options, but wanted to chime in. I have had four students go through University of North Carolina School of the Arts and they are ALL working professionally. Everyone loved the experience and...the "proof is in the pudding" as my first principal ...

Hello, Once Upon A Mattress comes to mind. Such a fun show and great for a strong female lead. Since the King is mute, no worries about his lack of singing. My two cents!

Hello, I would touch it with a ten foot pole! (Couldn't resist!) But seriously, when I directed PIPPIN and ONCE UPON A MATTRESS (in which many young men wore tights) I put all specific requests on their individual costume plots. Most went with a pair of Speedos.
