Getting Ready for "The Lion King, Jr!"

   Sorry for the lack of posts lately, gentle readers! It's been a busy time for an assortment of reasons - the main one being that I've been gearing up with my directing team for a big show this fall!

   First Stage is going to be the first theatre company in West Virginia to present Disney's The Lion King, Jr. - and I'm the lucky guy who gets to direct the show!

   We've assembled a great team, including music director Mark Smith, choreographer Melissa Marcum, assistant directors Robyn Welch, Zach Davis and Ashleigh Bailey-Bannon, producers Leslie Comer-Porter and Becky Craig, and set construction directors Jack Welch, Hunt Bryan and Mike Barbour! (And we have other talented people volunteering their help, too!)

   It promises to be a big show with a large cast - and it's going to be a lot of fun! We plan to announce the details about when auditions will be held very soon (And in the days to come we'll talk more about what to expect at auditions and rehearsals).

   Stay tuned!
