Hello my friends!
Just a quick update on what's up in Kimberli's world.
I'm working on two projects right now.
One is an original musical, story theatre style for the most part, called FRACTURED FABLES & FREAKY FAERIE TALES for Wilson School here in Cedar Rapids. We hold auditions next week and I'm excited to be back working with the kids again. Some of the skits woven into the tapestry of the production are "Little Red in da Hood", "The Three Little Wolves & The Big Bad Pig" and "Beauty is a BEAST!" Ought to be fun -- some audience interaction is involved keeping the tempo up and things exciting for everyone both on and off stage. Performance dates are March 22 & 23 at 7:00 both days. A small donation is taken at the door.
Then, there is a magical little theatre called ALLEY STAGE in Mineral Point, Wisconsin where I've been known to do a show or two... it is there that I'll be producing & directing an interactive show called "Uncle Willie's Wake" on St. Patrick's Day. The show is full of fun & laughs, reminiscent of the story in the song Finnegan's Wake. Poor Uncle Willie seemingly has met his demise at the hands of a runaway horse cart on the streets of Mineral Point. Audience members will eat, drink, be entertained by musicians and poets and the like, toast to the memory of Uncle Willie, sing along if they're so inclined and be part of the show that concludes with the reading of the Will where one lucky soul will win the "Pot O' Gold"... but there's a surprise ending that you just won't want to miss! Well worth the trip just a couple hours northeast of us here in Cedar Rapids, you can come spend the night in a small hotel or bed & breakfast and shop in the unique small businesses (antiques, jewelers, books, gifts and more) during the day. There are even rooms available at Shake Rag Alley, home of Alley Stage, should you want the whole experience of immersing yourself in that wonderful little corner of the world.
I'm also booking some music shows & will update y'all as they are confirmed.
Keep it LIVE
