It looks like I am going to design some shows with Garland Civic Theatre and Children on Stage this season.
I have to say I really enjoy designing the kids shows. It allows me to be extra creative. Children on Stage is a branch from Garland Civic Theatre and children ages 8-18 get to perform infront of nightly audiences. Sometimes these kids can be quite amazing. One year COS tackled Les Miserables! To my suprise these kids sang this show like you wouldn't believe. I actually saw it four times during the run.
Garland Civic Theatre has been producing shows for over 40 years and they perform out of the beautiful Granville Arts Center in Garland. They also tackle some big shows that turn out really well. They were the first theatre to obtain the rights for the non professonial production of Cats. One of my favorite shows that I have seen here was The Crucible.
Enjoy reading my encounters in and around theatre set design.
