Welcome to the 18 Carat Blog series. Over the next six weeks between now and opening night we’ll be featuring weekly guest posts here on the blog from some of the people who make Grinder the great theatre company that it is. You’ll hear from actors in our current production, as well as a few alums from shows gone by. I’ve also asked a few special guests to give us their thoughts as well.
I’ve asked each blogger to answer a fairly simple question – what it feels like to work on a show, and how has theatre improved their lives. I haven’t been looking for deep, dreary philosophical musings on the nature of art – this is community theatre, and it’s supposed to be a fun experience, first and foremost. I want to know how people are “getting their kicks” when it comes to theatre.
Tune in next week for our first post, by someone involved in our current production. In the meantime, don’t forget to purchase your tickets now for The 18 Carat Bumpkin, going up October 14th and 15th at the Fergus Grand Theatre. Click on the link on the sidebar to go straight to the box office.
