  • Love's Labour's Lost Opening at Stoller Family Estate
  • Call for Volunteers
  • 2016 Dates and Locations

No matter how many times you go through the process of putting up a show, opening night is thrilling. For the first time, you see how the audience is going to react to each moment. You find that jokes you always thought were hilarious only get the slightest audience reaction, and moments you never considered amusing cause a roar of laughter. You discover the moments of poignancy you had previously missed and find that the play flows in a completely different way than you predicted it would. In short, with the help of an audience, you really start to understand the unqiue production you have created, even if you have produced or acted in the play before.

I hope you will join us this year for Love's Labour's Lost and discover the play with us.
