Much thanks to all of you who have been so generous in your support of White Woman Street! There are many developments in the production. We wanted to share some of the more exciting ones at this time.
Last Saturday, we had our first look at costumes and everyone was very excited about the the motley crew of poor robber men that appeared.
Our musicians, Pat and Mary O'Day, have chosen 22 musical arrangements of the time for underscoring and transitions. Susan Nicholson from Fogwater will join Pat and Mary to record the music this Friday at the Miramar Theatre. Thanks to Bill Stace at the Miramar for assisting us with the recording.
The stools we will be using for horses here in Milwaukee have been constructed. Cal O'Neil, our tech director for the festival when it was held in Milwaukee, is now living in Dublin and has agreed to replicate the stools we will be using over there.
We are finishing the staging and scene work portion of the rehearsal process and will begin putting it all together by starting to run the show. The relationship between the characters is a very important part of this script and we look forward to exploring that further in these upcoming rehearsals.
The dates for our preview performances here in Milwaukee are all set: May 2 through May 6 at the Irish Cultural Heritage Center. Quinlan's Pub at the center will be open after each show to give us an opportunity to connect with our audience and supporters. We plan to have live music after each show!
