Being at a rehearsal of the Winter Sort of Thing could be the only thing more fun than actually attending a Winter Sort of Thing show! Here is photo proof. Everyone is having so much fun learning songs and dances for the big show. Only a few weeks away now!

We are winding down our set-build and our fearless leader, Mark Duska (Eastern University’s theatre tech director) has designed and created a fantastic pirate ship set for our latest Winter Sort of Thing: All Hands on Deck.
Here’s a few images of last night’s set build. Thanks as always to our parent and community volunteers who came out and helped to make this the best show ever!
Check out the massive platform construction on this set!
Don’t kid yourself, those stairs are steep! (But extremely safe for our young actors!)
This picture is the view from the very top and very back of the stage – Our “Captain’s Deck” if you will
Just to show you how far down it really is from the top.
The tools of the trade – hand drills! And another hair-raising view of the height of the set. Imagine, in just under a month’s time, there will be singing and dancing going on up here.
Hello and we’re back! We just completed our very busy summer season of theatre and iMagination camps and we are ready to dive headfirst into this winter’s show. Brooke, Jake, and Sarah (the playwright, director and composer of the Winter Sort of Things) have already been hard at work creating a fantastic new show for you!
We’re calling it: The Apparent Trap: A Cosmic Musical Comedy in 3-D
Today we did some really sweet work with actions (a fantastic theatre device), determining what all of our “kids in the hall” are doing to make Cooper Regional School come alive. At CRS, like many schools, there are groups of kids that choose to hang out together Though these groups are a little exaggerated from a normal school, we trust you’ll see bits of people you know in them.
Each clique chose precise actions that they can use to show the audience who they are and what they’re all about. They had to come up with very specific movements that are both recognizable and repeatable to depict the same scene multiple times from multiple points of view.
If we did our job today, you should see these clearly on stage in a little over a month from today! See you there!
Rehearsal for the year’s Winter Sort of Thing, “It’s About Time!” This clip is from an early rehearsal. We have scripts in hand and are working on objectives and actions. The actors are Eastern University students, a Yes! And… employee and a camper at one of our programs. They are playing the part of some very nervous high school freshmen. Learn more about Yes!
