Season Seven Starts

Yesterday started the new year.

Well, that's not entirely true. I mean, the calendar year starts January 1st. The Chinese New Year is generally late January, early February, depending on the seasons. The school year starts in September, or mid-August if your university bound. The Fiscal Year can start whenever you'd like it to. Personal years start the day a person is born, preferably marked with candles, cake, and gifts.

Yesterday started the new year of (capital t, spelled with an re) Theatre.

Well, that's not entirely true either. Designers and directors have been in constant communication since the season was chosen. Casting was made. A lot of work went on in the off-season, to start the on-season on time.

Summer has ended, and the new season is rolling in. What does that mean? A full year of theatre-y goodness starts now. We'll run through an action packed, four show season, hit a benefit featuring some new, workshopped pieces, fit in two semesters of after school classes, and end the whole shebang off with a month of summer camp.

So where does that leave us? It's Tuesday. Monday started the rehearsal process for Eurydice, our first show in the official Curio season.

Here on the Curio Blog you'll find the back stage scoop; all the stuff that should have made it to the director's cut. Straight from the rehearsal room, I'll be posting stories and interesting tidbits about the ongoing, behind-the-scenes work that you, the audience, never see. From read-through to dress, with  workshops and more, we'll have it all.

So sit back, relax, grab your popcorn and soda. A laugh track will be provided upon request.
