Get Shipwrecked!!!

Well, here it is... Swiss Family Robinson opens tonight at Northwest Children's Theatre and runs Friday and Saturday nights at 7pm, and Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2pm, through May 27th.

We had two preview performances, last night and the night before, and the crowd reaction has been terrific! As you might expect, the kids have loved the swashbuckling adventure and the pirates... I think that we Swiss Family members manage to hold our own in their eyes as well.

Of course, the spectacle of our deserted island and tree house helps to keep their attention, and who doesn't love a good pirate sword fight every now and then? Heck, we've even got coconut bombs!

I have to tell you, I've loved working with Sarah Jane Hardy, Roger Monroe and the whole crew over at NWCTC. They run such a tight operation, and everyone keeps a healthy, positive attitude - even when problems develop. I hope I get to work with them again soon... it's been a great experience.

An experience which will, I hope, translate into a great show... come on out and see it, and tell me what you think! It's been a heck of a road getting here... hop on board with me for the rest of the ride.

Hope I get to see you after the show...
