The hills are alive— with the sound of local talent! How delightful it is when local talent who grew up in the DMV area, and got their professional start in the district, returns to the nation’s capital on a national tour! In this TheatreBloom exclusive interview, we take just a quick moment to sit down with Austin Colby— of Richmond, VA and whose professional career got started in area regional theatres like Toby’s Dinner Theatre of Columbia and Signature Theatre— and discuss playing Rolf in the current national tour of Rogers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music.
Bippity-boppity-BAM! This isn’t your mother’s Cinderella. In the newly woven magic spell of the Rogers & Hammerstein classic, the shiny glass-slippered fairytale gets a retelling, a retooling, and a new look on how the story happened. Sitting down with us for an exclusive TheatreBloom interview, we chat with Sarah Primmer, playing Madame (aka the evil Stepmother), about the story and what her journey has been like so far.
Thanks for joining us,
Talented performers and lots of new faces, wondrous fun costumes and well lit-up stages, Rogers & Hammerstein for a summertime fling, these are a few of my favorite things! And The JC Summer Community Theatre, now appearing live at The John Carroll School, has them all in their inaugural production of The Sound of Music. Directed and Choreographed by Kimberly Brueggemann, Orchestral Direction by Richard Hauf and Vocal Direction by Bonnie Dubel Burns,
