END DAYS: Thoughts from Emily Sutton-Smith (Sylvia)

Posted by:

Hello WT Blog readers!

I haven’t had the opportunity to write a blog post for several years, but it seems very appropriate to write one about this show. As well as being the Development Director for the Williamston Theatre, I am playing Sylvia in End Days. It’s been quite a joy to be a part of this production.

END DAYS: Thoughts from the director

A candid pic from BOOM!

Were you at our first preview last night?  The audience loved the show, and threw lots of praise at the actors, but also at the set!

The basement research lab that marine biologist Jules inhabits is one of our most incredible scenic designs yet.  Janine Woods-Thoma did a terrific job designing it, and audiences are loving it.  This next picture is taken from an angle that no audience member will normally see:  Barbara has ...

“boom” rehearsals!

Posted by:

Our show boom, which starts previews at Williamston Theatre next week, is a ton of fun.  This week we’ve had a blast as we added the tech elements to the show – There’s a saltwater fish tank that just arrived!  Preuss Pets, of Lansing, is donating the use of the tank and fish, and assisting with care and maintenance!

Here’s the crew from Preuss Pets setting up the tank, along with Janine Woods Thoma, the set designer.
