A to Z Challenge – N is for Norman

Posted by mcm0704 on April 16, 2013 |

Marsha Norman was born in Kentucky in 1947, and she got her start writing for the Actor’s Theatre of Louisville. It was there that her first play, Getting Out, was produced.

The World Did Not End

Posted by mcm0704 on December 21, 2012 |

Good morning. We are all still here, so obviously the prediction that the world would end because the Mayan calender did was wrong. Funny how that happens with predictions. It’s also funny how plans go awry. This time of the year is busy for everyone who celebrates winter holidays.  For me it is Christmas, and […]

This is the last day of drama camp. Wow, it has been an intense two weeks. We have had twenty-four campers ranging in age from six to thirteen, and they are a creative, energetic bunch. The good thing is that they have put together a great show in this short span of time, even though […]
