Late Snow ZAPS Flowers at KECHI PLAYHOUSE!

Yes, it's true, The snow buried all our early flowers, but don't worry, they are still bravely hanging in there, looking just a little worse for wear.
I love seeing the flowers come up every year, because it tells me it's almost time for the Playhouse to open up. It's been a long winter and it will be nice to get rolling once more.

It's kind of hard to believe but when we open on June 3rd this year it will be our 28th season! And our 140th production! Come October that total will be up to 144. We are only able to say that because of our loyal audience members and the many great performers who have supported us through all those years.

Writing, Writing, Writing!

No, that's not me writing the latest blog entry, it's Michele Marshall playing Ann Landers in our one woman production of The Lady With All the Answers. I hope you got to see it - she was wonderful!

And speaking of one woman shows, the reason I have not been blogging lately is I've been busy writing a one woman play of my own to send in to the Off Off Broadway Playwrighting Contest sponsored by Samuel French. It was sent off to New York with the necessary postmark on the last day that submissions were being accepted. Yes, I know, that was cutting it a little close!

Judges will select 40 finalists to be staged and from those 40 productions, six plays will be selected as winners to go into this year's anthology. I have never sent a play into a contest before, so it is all very exciting. We should find out if the play made it into the top 40 sometime in May. Cross Your Fingers!
