Happy Friday, everyone! I hope your weekend is full of relaxation and words; whether you’re writing your own or reading someone else’s!
As many of you know, Susi and I have spent the last four months preparing with our community theater for our production of “Willy Wonka.” We opened last week and entertained just over 1100 people and we are currently getting ready for another weekend of fun.
CAST (Catasauqua Area Showcase Theatre) is not your average community theater. During the four months of rehearsals we get together on Saturdays for work days where we make our costumes, build the sets, paint the backdrops, create props and do whatever else is needed to put on a production.
When the group started in 1993 is was very low key, with minimal sets, props and costumes. In its 19 years the group has grown in every aspect from number of participants to production cost. Any profit we make goes right back in for the next year’s production. We’ve also donated profits to local charities and families in need.
In the clips below you’ll get just a small glimpse into our lives with Willy Wonka but you’ll also get to know us a little better. I hope you enjoy! And if you want to know more about our group check out our website.
