A fun production is always a great way to end a year. I’d like to thank everyone at Open House Theatre for the opportunity to perform in such an exciting show!

The Open House Theatre’s production of Alice in Wonderland has started its run, and I couldn’t be more proud of the result. Writing the script was a wonderful experience, and Open House has used it to create a show that is both hysterical, and genuinely touching. I am so grateful to the many talented people who helped make this show a reality. Though I will miss working on Alice in Wonderland, I am incredibly excited to be writing a script for a new commission, which will be officially announced sometime in the near future.
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.
