Stage Managers Make the Theatrical World Go ‘Round

When you witness a well put together production, everything you see go right on the stage (and more importantly everything that doesn’t go wrong) is more often than not the responsibility of the stage manager. Having just wrapped up a 2-day tech marathon, I know how important the role of a stage manager can be.

Rose’s New Season and Struve’s New Play Bring Excitement

Children’s theatre, regrettably, often doesn’t receive the press that other productions around town get.

UNO Theatre’s Tragedy and Triumph

A lot of tragedy has filled this past week at home and abroad. It’s times like these that the importance of theatre is magnified. Our artform and the stories it tells give us a means to cope, a tool to escape, a lens to help make sense of the world, and above all, a constant reminder that we’re not alone in this adventure called life.

Playhouse Struts, SNAP Parks It, and Witching Hour Monkeys Around

A thank you goes out to those readers that wrote Cold Cream in response to last week’s column. The clear response from everyone was that the OEA Awards are certainly enjoyable for all involved, but ideas for how to improve the experience were quite varied. One notable response was from local playwright Beaufield Barry.
