Fwd: Rhinoceros! -- May 14-15 at MGRHS

As many of you know, my friend Petra and I have been hard at work these past six weeks directing Rhinoceros, by Eugene Ionesco. The show goes up at Mt. Greylock next Friday and Saturday (May 14th and 15th). 

This is my last theatrical project at the high school, and it's one I'm very proud of. Petra and I have worked tirelessly to create a compelling and cohesive story with one of Ionesco's most famous (and most challenging) texts, and the cast has really risen to the occasion. 

The general trend these last few years has been delightfully large attendance at the winter musical and disappointingly sparse attendance at the spring drama. We'd REALLY like to change that this year. This is quite literally a show unlike any Greylock has ever seen. A healthy dose of French absurdism mixed with a cast of diligent actors, a compelling set and lighting design, and costumes from Williams College should make for a unique performance. 

So, I come to my main point: if you are available either or both of those nights, please try to make it!! We'd love to see you there. It's to support a great cause ($5 for students; $7 for adults), and you get to see an engaging bit of theater in the bargain. Also, spread the word! Tell your family and friends, bring your family and friends, and if you like what you see, come both nights! We'll be plastering the area with posters, but word of mouth is the most effective way to get people there. 

Thank you so much!!


P.s. If for no other reason, the more tickets we sell, the higher the chances are that there will be a spring drama next year. 

P.p.s. We are hoping to have an open dress rehearsal on Thursday the 13th at 3:00 PM. If you can't make it on Friday or Saturday, email me and I'll get you details on that front.
