For Wendy and me, almost every evening of the past few weeks has been spent on stage at the Pella Community Center rehearsing for USP's production of KOLD Radio, Whitefish Bay. Usually, one of our productions has 6-8 weeks of rehearsal between initial read through and performance. KOLD Radio has been an interesting experience becase it was put together in only five weeks which included Spring Break and Easter when most of the cast was busy or missing. Add to that the fact that our twelve-year-old cast member lost her father to cancer in the middle of the rehearsal period, and you can imagine the pressure and emotions everyone has been feeling. The good thing is that the core of the cast and crew are seasoned veterans who have worked together a lot. We open a week from tomorrow, and we'll be ready.
While no one has heard of this play, I think it's the funniest show I've ever been involved in. I want to be sure and invite everyone to try something different for an evening and take in a play. Tickets are only $8.00 in advance, which is a steal for live theater. Click here for more information about the show and getting tickets.
