We are done with Chicago...but hey, look! It's Bernada Alba!
Well, Chicago is done with. It was an amazing show, and if you got to see it, then congrats! If not, sorry, you missed out. Chicago was an experience I will never forget. To start off with, I was able to work in the Merriam Theatre, which is a professional theatre. Secondly, not only did I work with IATSE crews, which is the professional union for theatrical stage employees, but I got to work with materials that I have never worked with before. Getting to work with scaffolding and trusses was an incredible experience.
Even though we completely finished up Chicago, we still have a few shows left, and our next big show is Bernada Alba. The set design looks phenomenal and is designed from an alum set designer, Mike Leon, who was actually just accepted into the MFA design program at NYU. Also, we just received some awesome news that one of our musical directors, and professors here at the Ira Brind School, has just been hired to be the musical director for the west coast tour of The Scottsboro Boys. It is an amazing thing for the Brind school and for him.
The open house is this weekend, and Im excited for that. Hope to see you all there!
