Welcome Back! I hope you enjoyed last week’s look inside of the puppeteers for this show. Now, to dig a little deeper as I promised. Meet the all male stars of this show. Each with his own face and personality.

This is Peter Quince. As leader of the mechanical’s acting troupe, he has a rather bossy-bossiness to him. From the pronunciation of Ninus’ Tomb to the lover’s kiss, he would have everything perfect for the play he is putting on… He’s a bit prideful…

Eric: What is your name?

Peter Quince: Peter Quince

Eric: What do you like most about yourself?

Peter Quince: The fact that I am following my dreams to become an actor, producer, and director.

Eric: What should the audience be most excited about for the show?

Peter Quince: I have pulled together an amazing group of actors, to perform a marvelous show!

This is Flute. Tall and flowing, despite his longing for manliness he is often cast as a woman. But he plays one well.

Eric: What is your name?

Flute: I’m Flute! I’m not sure why I was named after a musical instrument but I think it might have something to do with the fact that I’m so long and skinny. It’s fitting but it’s not really a name the ladies swoon over, ya know?

Eric: What do you like most about yourself?

Flute: I have a wonderful beard coming in, it’s very exciting. I’m hoping it’ll help me appear more masculine. I just really want a girlfriend.

Eric: What should the audience be most excited about for the show?

Flute: Well, I play a woman a lot.. Lots of wigs and high, squeaky voices. That should be interesting…

Stay tuned for the second portion of this post, The Puppet Behind the Face: Part 2!

Presents and Presence

December 03, 2022 08:05 AM
One of the first things many people think of when they hear the word Christmas is gifts. Gifts and Christmas have been interchangeable for a very long time in our world’s history. But over time, what people think of as gifts has shifted. Each new era or generation defines it differently. There were monetary gifts such as gold, frankincense, and myrrh in the days of Christ, when all things were handcrafted and only the wealthiest of people could have precious ore or spices from distant lands. Or perhaps, during the great wars of the twentieth century, a gift of war bonds was precious when patriotism and the survival of the world made things like toys seem trivial to many. Now, everyone wants the latest iPhone or the newest technology. Throughout our lives, what we want also changes. Gifts shift from toys, games, and candy to technology or clothes–all inconsequential things that provide short-term entertainment. However, all of these things fade and have less impact on our true joy. Joy can really be found in the simple things of life.

Cultural Exchanges

December 03, 2022 07:15 AM
During planning for Christmas Around the World, Jeanette reached out to people who had the opportunity to tour and represent the United States this summer. I had the opportunity to go to tour in Spain with American Rhythm and the opportunities we had to meet people and learn about their cultures and their experiences, were truly incredible. We were asked about our experiences with meeting other people and what it was like to share cultural gifts with them. These questions were used to get answers from dancers and their answers were in the videos and audio you will see and hear throughout the show. These are the more detailed versions of my personal answers.

Gifts of Music and Cultures: Poland

December 02, 2022 10:02 PM
Throughout our time in Spain we had the opportunity to meet so many people from all around the world. From Mexico, Poland, Bulgaria, and of course Spain, we were able to meet so many amazing people and make so many amazing connections. We didn’t all speak the same language, many of them didn’t speak English and we didn’t speak many of their languages. So relying on the power of song and dance, we were able to connect through different aspects.
