Directing The November 2023 Dayton Theatre Guild mounting of Wednesday's Child, by Mark St. Germain, which I directed, will compete in the Ohio Community Theatre Association (OCTA) West Regional play festival at Encore Theatre in Lima, Ohio, on July 6. The cast will perform an excerpt from the end of the play that will run a little over thirty minutes. If it places at the Regional, we will take it to the OCTA State conference over Labor Day weekend in Columbus.

I will be directing the second production of the Dayton Theatre Guild's 2024/2025 season, Campaigns Inc., a dark political comedy by native Daytonian Will Alan*, a professional actor and playwright, once residing in Chicago (as a resident artist at the famed Steppenwolf Theatre), and now centered in L.A. (and a company member at Timeline Theatre Company).

This show is a season extra, and will not be a part of the season ticket package, but season package buyers will be able to purchased it as an add-on at a discount from the single-ticket price.

The show will run two weekends, Oct 11‐20, 2024.
General auditions are currently scheduled for Aug 26 & 27, 2024.
*) Will is also in the new Jerry Seinfeld Netflix movie, Unfrosted, which is streaming now.

sound designing Dayton Theatre Guild:
  • As well as appearing in, I am also the sound designer for our next show, the last of the 2023/2024 season, Superior Donuts, by Tracy Letts, directed by Jared Mola, which runs June 7-23, 2024.

  • At this point I am confirmed to design sound for three shows from our forthcoming 24/25 season: Campaigns Inc., by Will Alan, which I am also directing (showing Oct 11-20, 2024), The Minutes, by Tracey Letts, which I am producing and Melissa Ertsgaard is directing (running Jan 31-Feb 16, 2025), and Chancers, by Robert Massey, which Marjorie Strader is directing (showing Mar 28-Apr 13, 2025).

FutureFest 2024 at Dayton Playhouse: I am on board to design sound for this summer's installment of the annual new play festival, which took a one year hiatus but is now back up. This likely means that I won't be auditioning for any of the six finalist, as attending the key rehearsals close to and during Tech Week as sound designer, would a problem, and I will need to attend all six tech rehearsals, as well as some just before. This also precludes me from directing, as well.

  • Just as I suspected would happen, Doug Lloyd has asked me to lend my original sound design for the DTG production of The Sugar Witch, by Nathan Sanders, which we mounted at DTG in 2010, for the BCT mounting that goes up October of 2024. I have all the sound files still in my library, and probably still have the Show Cue Systems project file, though it will invariably need tweaked.
music Two collections of music that have been in the can for a while are on the docket for mastering.
  1. one is a double album with much electronic, experimental, and new-age type music on it, which I recorded in the mid 1980s.
  2. the other is ambient sound, which was recorded several years ago. This one has been remastered for use in the Wednesday's Child production which ran at The Guild, November 3-19, but I'll likely revisit the remastering before I decide about submitting the work for release as an album.

writing I currently am working, on and off, on drafts of my two-act play, which I've been writing for a while. Draft 5g was submitted to a new play festival, but was not selected as a finalist. More submissions will happen. I am now working on draft 7.

Recently I finished a short play that happens in the same universe as the play above and the novel below. I intended for it to be a ten-minute play, but it's running longer than that. At the moment I have no inclination to cut anything, or at least, not very much.

There's also my novel manuscript, started about twenty years back, which has had a finished draft for almost as long. And, again, is in the same universe as the plays mentioned above, but takes place earlier than either; in one case, over four decades earlier. I haven't actively worked on it in years, barely at all since I came back to theatre. I am trying to gear myself up to go back in for some revision and polishing.
