Subject: PUPT: The Terror within the Excitement


Hi All,

I know, a weird title to the thread, but it kind of describes the mood
here
at Renaissance Artist Puppet Company. This year we decided
to test the Waters of Festival Programming.  We know that the
competition
to perform at festivals is very fierce and that Festival budgets are
always
tight, so we were not entirely surprised when we did not get accepted by
the North Eastern Festival.

But...  We were thrilled when we heard from the performance committee of
the
South Eastern Festival, that our production of "Alice Through the
Looking
Glass" had been chosen.  

I have taught at many Festivals, and this will be no exception, so my
personal
schedule probably won't allow for to much worrying once we get down
there.
We are very confident about the way our show has shaped up but, as I
think is
pretty normal, a little nervous about so many of our professional peers
seeing
it at the same time. We are looking at this as both an opportunity to
get
feed back from other professionals about our work and hopefully to have
a blast doing the show.

I welcome any tips from those of you who have had this privilege in the 
past and look forward to being on the same program list with some of my 
personal favorites.  Just had to share this exciting news before I burst
or
something worse.

Hope everyone is experiencing a prosperous and happy year.

Best,

Liz
