Act III, Scene 64

Well, a BIG thank you to Nicole Shiro for stepping up and filling Stuart's (very big) shoes! Nicole, you did a great job and you are welcome back any time.

On Today's show we had Vortex Rep's Summer Youth Program and their production of "You Can't Take it With You" by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. On the show we had the director, Mick D'Arcy; two youth performers Rio Esquivel and Josh Braun; as well as two adult performers, John McNeill and Tyler Mabry... (Bonnie Cullum was there too).

On the second half of the show we had the first production of a brand new Central Texas Theatre -- Playhouse Smithville and "The Little Shop of Horrors." The director John Daniels Jr, the Musical Director, Matthew Torrez and cast member, Kody Dyer joined us on the show and sang "Feed Me' one of the few plant/human Duet. They opened last week to sold out crowds.. so if you want tickets you better call ... SOON.

Act III, Scene 61

Ah, Technology, how you play me for the fool!!!

Yesterday, we were fortunate enough to be given an additional 1/2 hour. (yay!! that's the good news)..... But the half hour from 2:30 to 3:00 was not recorded in the archives therefore it will not be included here. Unfortunately, there were three beautifully sung number in that time slot.. Scott Shipman singing "NYC," Jordan Morgan singing "Maybe," and Sarah Nichols singing "Tomorrow." I'm very very sad and hopeful that the geniuses at KOOP will find the file and we can add it. So this podcast will be missing a half hour.

What we do have is Doryan Rice, June Kontvis, Peter Fuhry, and Trevor Goodman from the Opposable Thumbs Theatre Company and their production of "Feaster"

As well as Scott Shipman, Emily Behm, Jordan Morgan and Sarah Nichols for Zilker Theatre's production of Annie opening July 9th and playing through August 15th at the Zilker Hillside Theatre.
