PWSSC PLAY TOUR Play Director Ryan Buen – This weekend marked the final showing of PWSCC's production of Lisa D'Amours Detroit. After a successful local run a week ago, the cast and crew toured the show to the Glen Massay Theatre in Palmer. This tour was a first for the long running PWSCC Drama Department, and a first for many members of the cast crew. The cast arrived at 10 a.m. and had to erect the massive two house set, redesign the lights for a new space, and re-block the show all by 6: 00 pm that evening. This proved to be quite the task, pushing the cast and crew quite far, sometimes right to the edge of breaking, but in the end the show looked breathtaking. It was quite the accomplishment. The show starred local talent Heidi Franke, Meg McKinney, Jay Stevens, Robert Covington and Dawson Moore and was crewed by Sarah Jorgenson Owen, Hannah Wassel, Jennifer Christofferson, Iam Cabitac, and Beth Charnell. The performances on display were of an extremely high caliber, with many audience members gushing about quality of acting on display, as well as all of the design and construction, most of which was done by Matthew Kress by himself at his personal shop at 46 mile. This show and tour truly represent some of the amazing work that can come out of out of our small community when its people come together with a common creative goal in mind.
