So, the winter/spring classes page is live–we’ve got new pictures and new classes for grown-ups and kiddies alike. There’s a teen class wherein they do selected scenes from Romeo and Juliet, but with some serious fight choreography. There’s the adult improv class that I’m going to be taking. There’s a comedy workshop for middle schoolers. There’s a Literary Society wherein students sift through the texts of each of 2008 season’s productions, spending two weeks on the dramaturgy of each.
I’m happy the page is live, and that the brochures for both those classes and the 2008 season will soon skip off to the printer, and not just because we’ve been working on them so hard for so long. (Seriously, you try finding photos that represent plays whose staging and costuming direction is barely a glimmer in their respective directors’ eyes–this morning I spend an hour looking for medium shots of the Kennedys giving speeches.) It’s because we’re hurrying them off to the printer so we all can toddle home for the holiday break. And then when we come back, it’s not long till classes start, the gala happens, and winter slides into spring. And the the spring classes happen, and then … it’s Cal Shakes season time again.
And in the meantime, today we’ve got the winter’s first rainstorm. But I’m wearing a cuddly turtleneck, and I can easily imagine the sun of the Bruns on my face.
