Macbeth (2017)

  |   Directing, Theatre   |   No comment


Every now and then, those productions come along which provide one with the opportunity to both overcome adversities and blaze social trails for the community. This was that production. This small, brave ensemble of (predominantly) women–many of whom had never tackled Shakespeare’s text before–undertook this inverted-gender production of Shakespeare’s immortal tragedy. I am so proud of this production and, more importantly, these incredible women.

This project was so much fun to work on. Riley Bayer, Ronald Baker, and Antonio Daniels-Braziel absolutely rocked this show. We were also fortunate to have the help of two members of the Reduced Shakespeare Company come to campus to give us some pointers! A very special shout-out to Austin Tichenor and Reed Martin for taking time out of their busy schedules to share their wealth of knowledge and for inviting us to see their Christmas show just before we opened!

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.
