REV: Our friends in Wimberley

Helyn Messenger, who has won Best Actress at two of our recent OAP meets, and whom i personally congratulated both times (hint, hint) has a netjournal with lots of commentary. Seems she found this blog a while back, and judging by the trail she left, the folks at Wimberley have been keeping an eye out over here.

In addition to the posts below on my summary of Regionals, there is quite a bit of commentary on her journal here:

[Removed at the request of her friends]

There is a lot of good commentary on there, and some things we could learn from. They have an exceptional program for a reason. Give it a visit, but please overlook their provinciality and hometown pride and see the pride they have in their work and program and directors and theatre. As Ben not so subtly mentioned, it takes work, lots of it. And leave them some nice notes, and congratulations, and best wishes for state. They're a class act and we should aspire to the same.

Helyn, break a leg!


Here's the state lineup from one of their journals:

Wimberley- The Beggars Opera
Iowa Park- The Boys Next Door
Van- The Caucasian Chalk Circle
Mt. Vernon- Kentucky Cycle: Fire In The Hole
Little Elm- Song of Bernadette
Aransas Pass- The Miss Firecracker Contest
Hempstead- The Learned Ladies
Barber's Hill- Peer Gynt
