News Justin will love

Next to Normal
co-creator Brian Yorkey is back in the proverbial saddle. Yorkey will be staging the Village Theatre's production of Jesus Christ Superstar, during the 2010-11 season. It seems that this announcement is only the latest in a long line of work for Yorkey, including a rumor that he was brought on to help write music for the much anticipated Catch Me If You Can.

Dancap layoffs

Despite recently recording their one millionth audience member for Jersey Boys, and the back-to-back runs of Miss Siagon and South Pacific at the Four Seasons Centre Dancap Productions has recently let go of over thirty employes, perhaps half their staff. Acording to the Globe, most of those getting the axe are members of the Dancap sales team, since there is currently nothing to sell beyond August. With Jersey Boys closing and limit engagments on the touring productions the Dancap team appear to be coming to the end of the line, and running out of track fast. It isn't all bad news though for Toronto's second most important production company. According to publisist Carrie Sager, the company is getting back to its core team to focus on bringing a fantastic new season, next year. No word yet on when that season might be announced.

I want to go to the Caravan

Just getting back from six months on the road, and came across two articles in the Globe about a company in the North Okanagan out in B.C, called Caravan Farm Theatre. Check out the two articles, here and here. The first, is about their current production Everyone which is actually a collaboration between seven companies including the Caravan. The other six are from Vancouver. Each company has worked with a single setting, a ride in a horse drawn carriage, and a theme of human instinct: sustenance, self-protection, nurturing, etc. It sounds like an interesting project. But it wasn't until I saw the second article that I was really intrigued. The Caravan has been around since 1970, and they do theatre on a farm. Yea how awesome is that? I'm not sure if there is anything that could possibly be better than having stables backstage. Caravan sounds like our kind of place. So if your in the Armstrong area of BC this summer don't miss Everyone, and if you have already seen something at Caravan drop us a line because we would love to know more.
