    Sounds like you are really enjoying the work. Hope it contnues to run smoothly and the ants-in-the-pants don’t become too “scratchy”

      The biggest thing is that I need them to be able to just SIT and watch what’s going on (part of the environment)…and I may not be able to do that because of the lack of focus. It’s part of the gig working with such an age range.

    No wonder you are so, so busy! But it sounds lovely! Wish I could see it for myself? Is there going to be a video for this!

      Hi Hajra: yes, there will be a DVD video, but I am not sure if I’ll be able to post any of it. There is a huge problem with making sure I have permission from 44 sets of parents to do that! I hope so, but I can’t promise.

        Oh yes, makes sense! Little kids in the video…. you never know where the video goes and in what crazy hands!

    I AM SO excited about this, Stu! =) It’s been so great getting a feel for the entire show from what you told over Skype and now the details laid out here. Glad to hear that it’s slowly and surely coming together. I really hope you convinced the Music Director to include Krumping. =)

    Wow, Stu, it sounds very eclectic with the traditional music. Motown music, and hip hop. But it sounds like there will be something for everyone. I think the environmental message is great. I have no doubt you can pull this off!

    Sounds like a stupendous challenge, especially setting this in Mali. Love your idea for the theme of deforestation and eroding beauty of the landscape of once lush forests. How original to use rain sticks as props. Really, the whole production sounds incredibly original and I hope/expect it will draw a lot of attention.

    Try Valle de Bravo, 100 miles from Mexico City. A colonial town, lovely lake surrounded by a pine forest.
