CSP Update

It’s been a while since I wrote. I’ve been tired, working, and distracted. It be’s that way sometimes.

Last Saturday was a wonderful day at the Chapel Street Players NEXT program. We had a wonderful read through of Alan Harbaugh’s great new  short piece, which is a kind of like a replay of Romeo and Juliet in a Starbucks. It was pretty great.

We still suffer from not having enough actor involvement as they bring a certain quality to the readings. We really need to get more actors there.

To do that we have restructured the meetings with readings and getting actors involved in developing a play and along the way – writers. We are trying something completely different to entice actors, we are developing a community where actors and writers work together and separately to create characters and settings that the actors bring to life through improve. Anyway we made some progress as we introduced a new character.

Take a look at this video and you’ll get a feel for it. As you can see I am marginal and Brooks Black is great. I won’t give too much away, because we want actors to come and feed us ideas and feeling. https://youtu.be/WgQojIZDjs8
