Steel Magnolias

Alright, I've held off on posting this for a while, but I figure it's about time. Last year, we (NCC) dove head-first into the realm of live theatre and produced Godspell on our Ebenezers Coffeehouse stage. It was a great first step, and proved to be more successful than I imagined it could be, due to a very committed and enthusiastic cast and a phenomenal director. So we decided that Godspell was not simply the culmination of a dream, but the beginning of one.

Now, we are stretching ourselves in a new direction this summer with Steel Magnolias. For those of you who haven't seen the movie (you men who are Yankees), it's a great story of the importance of community and friendship. Here are the amazing people I get to work with:

Bekah Kitterman (M'Lynn)
Lisa Overman (Shelby)
Lindsey Vogt (Truvy)
Jen Watts Barrie (Annelle)
Amanda Giobbi (Clairee)

Kacey McGowan (Director)
Sarah Owen (Stage Manager)

There's a role left out of that list, and I'll leave it to your imagination to figure out what I'm doing in this gig. Let's just say McGowan is very persuasive and has the spiritual gift of manipulation.
