Miss Saigon – Western Playhouse 2013

  |   Directing, Theatre   |   22 Comments

Miss Saigon

For the second season of Western Playhouse, I was handed a seemingly insurmountable task for our fledgling company.  I put together the best production team I knew and set about the task of putting this thing together.  We attended auditions in Kansas City, St. Joseph and the Southeastern Theatre Conference.

What an outstanding production experience! I’m so proud to have been part of it. We all made some really great new friends and made some amazing theatre in the process.

Sweeney Todd – MWSU 2013

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd was definitely number one on my bucket list of shows.  I can honestly say that I have checked this one off the list.  (Not that I wouldn’t do it again…)

This was, quite literally, the perfect storm of cast, crew, and production team.  This show turned out exactly as I pictured it in my head.  I take that back.  It was better.

MWSU Theatre – J.B. – 2012

  |   Directing, Theatre   |   2 Comments


This was definitely the most rewarding theatrical experience I’ve ever had. And, I’m happy to report that our cast and crew were able to rack up a few awards and recognitions for our work at the Region V Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival this January in Lincoln, NE.  Grant Adkins took 2nd Place in the Region for his Sound Design for the show and Shaun Allison was also recognized for his work on the Lighting Design.

I’m very proud of this production and everyone involved with it.  It was not an easy piece to produce and the actors were really up to pushing themselves with this new challenge.  That was inspiring to me.  I’ll never forget it.

Arsenic & Old Lace

One of my favorite theatrical experiences ever.  This cast and crew was an absolute dream to work with and they were definitely some of the most talented and funny individuals I’ve come across in a long time.

MWSU Theatre – Phantom – 2011

Yeston & Kopit's Phantom

This was the first production I directed at Missouri Western.  It was a collaboration between the Theatre and Music Departments.  This was, to that point, the largest production I’d ever directed, but we were very proud of the outcome.  Not only was a beautiful production, it was also the first production in the modern history of Missouri Western that was a complete sellout.

MWSU Theatre-Romeo & Juliet-2011

Romeo & Juliet

I directed the first production of the 2011-2012 Season at Missouri Western and we opened it with a production of Romeo & Juliet.  I was especially proud of everyone involved.  Many of these students have never even read Shakespeare before, let alone performed his text.  They tackled this with a hunger and passion I’ve rarely seen before.

Needless to say, I chose the Civil War as the backdrop of for our Romeo & Juliet.  Celebrating the 150th Anniversary in one a city that prides itself on being the starting point of the Pony Express and it’s history from this era helped with the success of this production.
