As the Cheshire Cat disappears, Alice notes that she’s “often seen a cat without a grin” but has never seen a “grin without a cat” before. The Cheshire Cat is a fan favorite character in the Alice stories, and I am thrilled about the way we’re bringing him onstage. Well, floating above the stage to be more specific.
Here’s a sneak peek at a few of our costume pieces, created by the Open House Theatre and the incredibly talented Emma Downey.

I would like to thank Open House for another great summer of theatre. Whether I was stage managing or helping to build the set, it was amazing to have such a beautiful lake as a backdrop. Working on a Shakespeare production is always rewarding, and with such a talented cast and crew it was a wonderful experience.
After several wonderful performances, our production of Agnes of God has finished its run. I am so grateful for my talented cast and for all of their hard work. I would also like to express my appreciation to the Beloit community for their support. I would like to give special thanks to the Beloit Independent Theatre Experience, Samuel French, and Beloit College.

Directing this show has been as challenging as it is rewarding. I feel so fortunate to be working with such a talented cast and crew.

It has been a great pleasure working with the Open House Theatre in Vienna as their production assistant for Viel Lärm um Nichts. It is challenging enough to translate Shakespeare into German, but the company took it even further by adapting Much Ado About Nothing into an Upper Austrian dialect. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work with such a talented cast and crew.
