I couldn’t decide on a color… so I didn’t!

What a fun show! The kids are doing a great job. Sorry for the short post, but have to get back to work on the programs!

You’ll Never Stop The Terror!

Just realized that it has been… ahem… quite a while since I have posted here. There are a few updates from the past that I will try to post.

Here is the poster artwork for HHS’ Little Shop of Horrors from 2011. I have a soft spot for this show. It was my first community theatre show. I’ve done it a couple of times now, and have done publicity for it twice for HHS. How can you not love a show with lines like: “You ate the only thing I ever loved!”

I am the Captain of the Pinafore…

…and a right good captain, too!
Well, for the first time in quite a while, I went to an audition last night night. And today I got a call asking if I wanted to join the cast of Woodbury Community Theatre‘s An Evening with Gilbert & Sullivan — and I even get to sing the Captain’s Song. The revue will feature songs from Trial by Jury and other G&S favorites. The show isn’t until September, but there are only 2 performances on the 12th and 13th, so mark your calendars now! Looking forward to working with old friends and being on stage again.

Old Photos Online

Joe Holmers in <i>Kiss Me Kate</i>

The uploading continues… I’ve got a couple more shows from the archives just added to the gallery. Both are from 2006. Kiss Me Kate at Morris Park Players and Twelfth Night at Macalester College. I haven’t done any editing or color correcting, so these are jpegs straight out of the camera – both keepers and duds. Mostly just wanted to get them uploaded for the purposes of backup, rather than actual marketing… but who knows, right?

Bon Voyage!

Anything GoesThis is my weekend of working “in the cave” to put together the programs for Hutchinson High School’s spring fall musical. This year they are doing Anything Goes, which has some special meaning for me in a couple of ways. For one thing, it was the first HHS show that worked on outside of high school. That was 1996. The first year after the late, great Jeff Bentz left the helm to Jim Nelson and Steve Pasche. Anything Goes is also the show where I met the fetching Mrs. Krueger. That was 2002 with Heritage Theatre Co. I played “4th sailor from the left” and Shawnee was the stage manager. For those of you who are confused by her email address, perhaps that bit of info will clear things up… This year, we are making photos available to order – check out the link here after the show opens!

Tale as old as time…


It’s that time of year again. When I go into the cave to work on the posters, tickets, t-shirts, and programs for Hutchinson High School’s musical. This year, they are doing Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Rather ambitious, no? Should be a cool show. Steve and his team have built an impressive set and the cast is showing a lot of potential – if only they learn to “sing out!” without being told every two minutes. In particular, Ben Ballard has a strong stage presence and great voice on the Beast’s soaring ballads. Above, you see the “logo” that I put together. The poster has all of the necessary credits, fine print and legalese, but I thought I would spare you the details here. The show is November 1, 3 and 4 (no Friday show) if you want to catch it.

Taking a break…

Did a couple of auditions recently, but I have no upcoming shows. The first was for Urinetown with Heritage Theatre Co. I didn’t really expect to get the coveted role of “Bobby Strong,” but I did have a glimmer of “Hope” when I was called back to sing and read for “Officer Lockstock.” Those were the only two roles I put down that I would accept, because I knew that I would also be auditioning for…
Guys and Dolls at Morris Park is another story. I really thought I had an almost certain shot at the role of “Nicely-Nicely Johnson” – I would have also accepted “Nathan Detroit” but I still think I’m too young for that role. But neither of those were in the cards. Frankly, I’m a little confused. Not to sound too much like a diva, but knowing that I have a pretty good relationship with the theatre, the director and the choreographer, and I’d like to think that I’m very qualified for the role… I really thought I had it. It’s not like I can blame this one on needing to lose some weight either – “Nicely” has the running gag of food obsession. A few friends were also rather surprised. Hopefully whoever they did cast is fabulous. If I see the show and their “Nicely” sucks, I’m really going to wonder what happened. Oh well, that leaves more time to work on the Stickney Project
