Playwriting and Final Performances

Xp01 I wrote a play last Spring for the Tulip Time Playwriting contest. Last I updated you, it was one of the three finalists. I made my revisions and sent it back in for the final round at the end of October. Blind copies (author identities hidden - in fact, at this point only one person knows the identity of all the playwrites) of the three plays were sent to three different judges. From what I hear, these are some respectable judges. Members of the Scriptwriters Association and one of the judges has authored what has become major motion pictures - sheesh!

Anyway, the winner will be announced December 15th. Union Street Players is going to have a staged reading of the first 15-20 minutes of each of the three plays and then announce the winner with a reception following. The winning play will be produced next May for the 2007 Tulip Time. The staged reading and reception will be at the Joan Farver Kuyper Auditorium in the Pella Community Center (712 Union St. - Pella) and is open to the public. Anyone who wants to attend is welcome.

Speaking of theatre, It's been great to have a few days of rest from our run of "The Christmas Post". My voice and energy level were pretty well shot by Sunday night. We had a quick 90 minute rehearsal last night to run the lines. My voice is still ragged, and I'm glad I have a couple more days before Thursday night's performance.

If you haven't seen it, there are two more shows to catch! Thursday and Friday at 7:00.
