I'm directing my first theatre production "Dial 'M' for Murder"... Last night I sat in the audience and as the glow of the set filled my senses I felt an odd feeling. And I thought it was very strange to see my creative vision on the big stage. The set is amazing. It has a warm glow to it and yet it is sinister at the same time. There is a really amazing chandelier that hangs in the middle of the set and it makes all the difference.
My first time being on the Sauk stage the set was amazing. I think that set the bar for me. I am told there has not been a set at the Sauk Theatre since that set that compares to it... and I'm being told that my set rivals THAT set. And in fact, the set that I first saw was created by a person who was building the set for credit for a class. I'm very proud of my set. It was built completely by volunteers and it overwhelms me to think that people "helped" just for the love of Theatre (pictures soon to follow).
As I mentioned above, I have a strange sensation. I feel so adult right now. Everything feels different somehow. I believe I went through a shift in September. September was a very difficult time for me. And as I emerge on the other side I can see that I shifted somehow. It's almost like I have to get comfortable in my new skin. And allow the "Glo" to settle in;)
