Stick Fly Invited Dress

by:  Lisa McColgan at 02/20/2010

Today we welcome a new voice to the Huntington's blog - staffer Lisa McColgan, the Huntington's Annual fund Coordinator. Thanks Lisa! 

This past Thursday, we invited a number of special guests (including Board members, donors, and community leaders) to the Calderwood Pavilion to witness the final dress rehearsal of Stick Fly.

This “Invited Dress” marks the end of one stage of the theatrical process (rehearsing) and signifies the beginning of another (preview performances in front of a live audience). It begins the process of really learning how a show comes to life with an audience, and to make final adjustments to the technical elements before opening night. For an invited audience member, it’s a unique opportunity to see a production before it opens to the general public. “Tech tables” are still up throughout the house, staff members are scribbling notes, and sometimes, the performance is stopped to make adjustments in lighting or blocking. It’s a fascinating glimpse into what goes into the productions here.

For the actors, having a small audience can be very helpful. Will people laugh at this line? How will they react to this scene? In a sense, it’s a “sneak preview” for our actors as well!

It’s valuable for the staff, too, to be able to speak with our supporters and hear about what they love and answer any questions. I had a great time speaking with a couple that have been donors and subscribers since our very first season, who told me that they make it a point to see as many Arthur Miller plays as they can, since their first date at a production of The Price. Our staging of All My Sons, they happily reported, was the best they’d ever seen.

Stick Fly’s final dress rehearsal was an exciting and intimate evening for everyone involved. Several guests remarked how much they appreciated feeling a part of the process.

Invitations to our “Invited Dress” are one of the many benefits of being an Annual Fund supporter. If you would like more information, or to make a gift, please contact me here in the Development Office at 617 273-1546.

  1. Colin Mcconn I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come acorss a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'
  2. You know. I do miss a green October...Although the colours here are stlepacucar, there is a tinny part of me that will always miss how good a mild clima feels ...You little personal jungle has so many metahpores in it Sarapirat ;)
  3. You're on top of the game. Thanks for shgirna. http://izsilxgkgke.com [url=http://slswggudcaq.com]slswggudcaq[/url] [link=http://jeeyjly.com]jeeyjly[/link]
  4. I strongly believe that the Yonge corridor needs a subway and not an LRT system like some suggest on this site. Though LRT maybe more feasible in terms of cost it doesn’t address that type of commuting pattern that exist in that area. LRTs are meant for local trips and a majority of the people coming in from York Region will be using system for long haul trips. Also keep in mind the VIVA already plans several LRT/BRT projects for the Yonge/Highway 7 corridor beyond where the new subway line will be, so I don’t think local transit be so much of an issue in York Region anyways. My only issue is the phasing of this project in relation to the DRL and the Go Express Rail. I would hope Metrolinx prioritizes the DRL first followed by the Yonge Subway extension and then the GO Express Line.On a side note is it me or has anyone noticed that with all the transit announcements we’ve been hearing about over the last 3 yrs (starting with the Spadina subway extension back in 2006) not one of these projects has started construction. I’m sorry but i don’t consider a couple of engineer marks on Sheppard Ave E progress, or better yet a sewage pipe replacement that would probably need replacement anyways before it burst in the winter “subway construction”.Politicians say most of these project will completed by 2020 … I highly doubt it. I’ll be surprised if even half of these transit initiatives are completed.Steve: The Spadina line is under construction. Utilities relocation is always part of any subway project, and you can’t dig the tunnel until you get everything else out of the way. The tunnel boring machines have been ordered. Stations on the line are in the design stage (there was a big debate at the TTC about Steeles West on October 29 about which I will report in a separate post). Opening date is 2016.The big work that has to be done on Sheppard East is the grade separation at Agincourt. That is needed whether or not there is an LRT line, but the local businesses are in a snit and tar the LRT line with what is really a GO issue. Service is planned to begin in 2013.The EAs are still in progress for Finch and Eglinton, and the latter has several major design issues that will come back for public review later this fall. Finch service is planned to begin in 2015. Eglinton will probably open in stages, given its length, from 2016 through 2019.The SRT project is almost but not quite officially now an LRT project, and that triggers a redesign. The TTC wasted some time by focussing on an RT-centric design and public presentation, but they are now in the final stages of settling the details of the LRT project with Metrolinx (according to TTC’s Gary Webster at teh October 29 meeting). The SRT is planned to re-open after reconstruction and extension in 2016.Other major projects include the work on various rail corridors (some now underway) and a major reconfiguration of Union Station that will begin in 2010, with a target completion of late 2014. This will provide over double the existing passenger handling capacity for both the subway and railway (GO) stations. auto insurance free quotes car insurance quotes
  5. The way that I see this is that the government is encairogung young people to go against their parents’ counsel. Did it ever occur to you, Jake, that there are many young people who abstain simply because their parents taught them that pre-marital sex is immoral? The government contradicts the parents’ counsel by saying, in effect, that premarital sex might not be the best choice, but it is ok if you protect yourself. Isn’t that the message? My children are raised, but I would resent any organization that went against my religious or personal moral beliefs behind my back by providing contraception to my children.Since when does the governmnent’s authority supercede a parent’s God-given right to raise a child according to core moral/rligious beliefs? airline credit card cash back credit card

  7. I’ve got freelancers here in India, what I really want is a full time content writer in the office. If you know of anyone that might want to spend a year in India, even if just for some working experience, send them to me!Regarding doing a job you enjoy, if someone is in a job they don’t enjoy they need to take a long hard look at why they are doing it and why they aren’t doing something they enjoy. OK, if you want to be a writer or artist then you might have to do some crappy jobs till you get your break, but if you give up on your dream and ‘settle’ for something less than what you want then you’ve only got yourself to blame @Father: Aerospace Engineering was what I wanted to do at the time because it interested me (and still does). I didn’t do it because I thought it would lead to a higher salary. Similarly, I’m now working in IT (well, marketing in IT) and really enjoy what I do. I must do because I earn less than my little sister and moved to India – because it’s what I want to do, not because it pays more. business insurance costs credit card offers 0% apr

  9. I didn't start it, it was something that was onragized throughout the whole State, and part of the plan was to involve ARES, of which I am a member, so I was happy to participate. Chances are likely that the next time something like this occurs, I may possibly be at the Hillcrest facility again since I am getting used to it and feel at home there, so maybe I will see you there, and I will look forward to meeting you! http://dpswnxoq.com [url=http://tvvzdjsu.com]tvvzdjsu[/url] [link=http://wxfztg.com]wxfztg[/link]
