Moonlight and Magnolias opens this week. We’re beyond ready. As our director, Craig Rhyne, says, all that’s missing now is an audience. Preview tomorrow, then opening on Thursday with a 2 p.m. matinee and a 7 p.m. evening performance. I feel very privileged to be working with such a talented and compatible company of theater professionals.

A late snow in Sanford and vicinity failed to prevent me from flying from nearby Raleigh to Birmingham last week for a planned vacation of sorts. SETC was held there and the graphical theme for the convention was a promotional photo I art directed for Guided Tour at Centre Stage in 2007. I gather from BJ Koonce that the SETC staff was “absolutely thrilled” with the image, but dear BJ has a gift for hyperbole, so I’ll file the review under “very happy.”
