More excitement this weekend (starting tonight!) in the quarry turned theatre that is Alley Stage. Maybe you’ve walked by and heard all the commotion. Don’t be shy. Come on in and see what’s happening at the place described by the Democrat Tribune as “a jewel of Mineral Point.”
HSB was invited to a rehearsal of this weekend’s Alley Stage production of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Here’s a short sneak peak:
As you can see, it’s really not a spelling bee, but rather a musical about a spelling bee. The inclusion of audience volunteers adds to the fun.
The performance features many local favorites. See if you recognize any of these names:
Cast: Mike Mitchell Jennifer DeCoste Roland Sardeson Mike Christensen Sarah Galle Darby Fitzsimons Alisa Helmich Braden Zywicki Kyle James Directors: Sam Murn Luke Tredinnick Orchestra: Becky Morgan Jean VanMatre Ken Killian Tim Ekenberg Abigail Colby
