Hey ya’ll. It Shelton again! I hope you’re all having a great summer, getting rest, having fun, doing the things that refuel you and bring you joy.

In case you missed it on Schoology…or maybe you don’t have access to Schoology right now…CLICK HERE for the YouTube link to the reveal of the fall show…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azr_J293OHs

I’m really excited. This is going to be soooo different, so crazy and I’m thrilled we get to have a chance to do this show.

A few things about the show:
     – a quasi-musical in the fall…what? That’s right, this version of the AWL story includes original compositions from Portland musician Michael Allen Harrison. Check out his site here. https://www.michaelallenharrison.com/

He and I have worked together in the past and I was really excited when the opportunity arose, through a mutual connection, for him to compose original music for this show!
     – My hope is to double cast most actors. The structure of the show is basically, Alice in Wonderland ACT 1 and Through the Looking-Glass ACT 2.
     – The Cheshire Cat will be Three Actors, essentially playing three personalities of the cat. Anyone know how to do aerial silks?
     – Production folk, the design is going to be off the charts. Shrinking and growing items! Flying Actors, the stage flooding! Just at a glance!
     – Oh, and a live orchestra in our Les Mis orchestra pit we’ve been dying to get a chance to use!!! 🙂

Please holler at me if you have any questions. And for those interested, here’s the cast a characters for the show. As you can see, there is a little something for everyone!
