Glass Theatre Presents

Play On!

Written by Rick Abbot

Director: Erin Foreman

Play On! is presented by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals.

Director's Note

I love community theatre and grew up in it, having been involved in plays as a child at the Lynchburg Fine Arts Center (RIP). Through my work with the Mark W. Foreman Foundation for the Performing Arts, I have gotten to know and love all the community theatres in the area. So when the opportunity to direct a play featuring a community theatre, I jumped at the opportunity. The title of this is Play On, so that's what we've done: Play! I have had a great time playing with this cast, from auditions with improv games to the macarena during rehearsals.

Anyone familiar with theatre knows that anything can go awry - and often does! This cast has done exceptionally well at portraying struggling actors trying to put on a play that constantly changes with failing technical cues, a frazzled director, a stressed stage manager, and a frustrated tech director. And yes, they have overcome challenges themselves with medical woes, scheduling snafus, and location changes. I want to thank the cast and crew for their dedication and flexibility as we put in understudies, changed technical expectations, and added and cut out different jokes to put together the best show possible! Like our fictional cast, the real cast of Play On! has shown wonderful humor and perseverance during the show.

I am grateful to Richard Buck for his sponsorship of this show and ask you to support this local insurance agent who supports the arts in our schools. I also ask that you support community theatre in our area, as these organizations are the lifeblood of both students and adults in our community. Thank you for all the support we receive from our ECG community, parents and hard working students. Please continue to support our 2023-24 season by coming to see Silent Sky January 26-28.

So from the moment you entered the auditorium, you joined the world of MirrorTheatre, a small community theatre in Rhode Island. They will be performing their original work, Murder Most Foul. We hope you will enjoy the show and return often!

Now, more than 80 interpreted shows later, this veteran performance interpreter considers her role in introducing shadow interpreting to Central Virginia in 2012 as one of her greatest professional accomplishments. Her work is crafted solely with the goal of achieving visceral equivalence for ALL members of the audience, hearing and Deaf alike.
