The Caitlin County Hemp Wars

Staged Reading

Boston Playwrights Theatre
November 25th, 2008
Director – Jennifer Vento
Music Director – Rebecca Booth-Fox
Lighting – Michael Clark Wonson

 Bravo! to our incredible cast, musicians, and creative team for an amazing first staged reading. When you think of all the things that could possibly go wrong – nothing did!
Music sounded great! Fabulous acting and singing! Jen’s efforts at blocking elevated the staged reading to another realm, and lighting by Michael Clark Wonson added a whole new demension.
Great audience, and some post-reading feed back offered Don and I an opportunity to make changes for the spring.  Stay tuned.

Looking back:

October 30th –
We have a date and place – November 25th at the Boston Playwrights Theatre, for what will be the historic first staged reading of ‘The Caitlin County Hemp Wars’.
Several rehearsals in, and we have a pretty amazing cast and group of musicians who get better and better with each rehearsal. Our music director, Rebecca Booth-Fox, is doing a fabulous job teaching everyone their musical parts, and director Jen Vento, is stretching the limits of the script-in-hand reading to include props and blocking, so we get a better taste of the theatrical experience. Much preferable to the usual script-in-hand line up. This should be an interesting evening of entertainment!

August 14th –
Cast is shaping up for a staged reading sometime late November (exact date and place to be determined). The Caitlin County family is growing with eleven talented actors attending a second Cambridge reading (book and music) accompanied by guitar and violin! We now have a music director and are getting ready for music rehearsals in September.

July 3rd
The day before Independence Day and we had our first reading of ‘Caitlin County…’  (in Cambridge). Music sounded good, nice group of people, and a fine time was had by all. Our next reading (book and music) will be Thursday, August 14th.
