A Place to See

Actors’ Mission traces one ancestral line to the Dock Street Theater in South Carolina-the first building in America created solely for theatrical purposes. The Dock Theater sprang from influences in Western Europe, most likely Renaissance theater in England, and from there, as we all learned in junior high, back to the ancient theaters of Greece […]

Actors, the stage is yours…

Saturday, I spent a pleasant afternoon at Actors’ Mission’s food booth in Bunning Park. It was a worthwhile time at a worthy community event. International Day pays homage to Rock Springs’ second-wave immigration roots in the most immediate and satisfying way, by celebrating the food traditions of our town’s legendary 54 nationalities. You can lull away […]

How Many Actors Does It Take To Screw In A Lightbulb?

Well, let’s see…One to screw in the light bulb, one to cue him on the line he’s supposed to be saying while he does, one to hold the ladder, one to pull the secret cord that makes the ceiling collapse to finish the joke, one to direct the two visible on stage and make sure […]

All the world is a stage…

There are so many parallels drawn between the theater and real life. Ever since Shakespeare first likened the world to a stage, we have waxed philosophical about our entrances and exits, being center stage or a bit player, scripted or unscripted, rehearsals and opening nights, waiting in the wings, our final bow…all these phrases can and have been used […]

Ahead of Our Time: Actors’ Mission Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing is all the rage these days. Kickstarter. mTurk. ODesk. crowdSpring. All well-known sites where companies tap into the collective intelligence of the public at large in order to expand resources, get free labor, and find out what the customer really wants. Welcome to our world, World! For the past ten years-long before Kickstarter- Actors’ […]

Through the Wormhole…

“I am, like you, fascinated by the mysteries around me, by the strange forms of matter that pass through us all, by the parallel universes that live beside us, by the holes in time and space than beckons us to world’s beyond our wildest imaginings…” Now, I know I’m no Morgan Freeman though I wish […]

A Glorious Return

Please help me welcome back the Monday Blog! We went on an unexpected hiatus after some technical issues earlier this year, but now we’re back (and welcoming a new blogger to the rotation to boot).   The return of the blog has me thinking about returns in general. All throughout our world, people and things […]
