This weekend

Can't get enough Macbeth

Tonight I'm going with a group of friends to see Macbeth again. There are only two more performances left of that show and three more of Henry V. It's been fun to be in the role of a stage mom. I hope that I'll have opportunity to be in that role again, but that's entirely up to Dominic. He may choose to stick with soccer after this. Time will tell.

Other Weekend Shows

Were I staying in town, there would be several other options this weekend:
  • The Foreigner is playing at the Ledges Playhouse in Grand Ledge.
  • Flap continues at Williamston Theatre.
  • All-of-Us-Express is performing The Wizard of Oz at the Hannah Center.
Saying Goodbyes

The latter will be the final show that Evelyn Weymouth directs as the organization's artistic director. She'll be sorely missed, though I'm sure she's left the organization in good hands. Evelyn has done such amazing things for the group and has provided them with such a vibrant vision for so long. It's difficult to not think of the the woman and the organization as being synonymous.

Last night I also said goodbye to Lamont Clegg--an outstanding actor and theater teacher who has been a part of the Lansing theater scene for many, many years now. He's moving this weekend to Florida where he'll be teaching theater at a performing arts high school. I wish him well. This community will miss him greatly.
