Everything was set, 10 play submissions were chosen for production in June this year. Directors were signed up and auditions were about to be held! Then, WHAM! Life was changed by the pandemic.
“But the show must go on!” With live theater productions on hold, the Sunflower Troupe decided to try the next best thing, videos of the 10 Minute Plays. Thanks to the resources and acumen of our volunteers we were able to set out on an excellent adventure of learning how to make a video of a staged play.
Below are the first two- “Tenth Muse” by Michael Burgan of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and “An Unusual Bird” by Vicki Meagher of Albuquerque New Mexico.
LOCAL AUTHOR PUBLISHES FIRST BOOK!
Another project of the Troupe is centered around local author Susan Carpenter Noble who wrote a children’s book – “Cowgirls Don’t Quit”. In person public readings can’t be held right now- so we made a video of Susan reading the first chapter of her book to help get the word out!
