From Jp – A Much Deserved Break

December 21, 2011

What an artistically fruitful autumn it has been for all of us at Touchstone!

We started the season with our first ever horror themed evening of one acts, Into The Dark, which highlighted the vision and playwriting of individual Ensemble Members. This was a new form and topic for the Ensemble to tackle, but the Touchstone Ensemble adapted, and the show was a great success.

We then had the privilege of presenting Sean Christopher Lewis’s one man show Killadelphia as part of a grant received from the NEA. Killadelphia explored violence in the city of brotherly love and questioned redemption. Sean’s storytelling and character playing ability made for an insightful and thought provoking series of performances. While in town, we were also able to help present Sean at Broughal Middle School and Moravian College, where along with the show, Sean held workshops for the students.

Last but not least, wrapping up our fall season was Christmas City Follies XII. I’ve been directing Follies for the last four years, was the Musical Director for the three years prior to that, and I still haven’t grown bored with building this show. I truly look forward to directing this show and would love to find other outlets for the Ensemble to create similarly styled projects.

So, we’ve been busy, and now we rest.

Thank you all for your patronage and support of Touchstone. We will back working hard come January, but till then, may you all have a safe and restful holiday season.
