      I've been working on selecting the sfx and music to be used in PROOF. It's one of my favorite tasks with a production. It is so important to me for the music for scene changes or intermission or pre- and post- show express and embrace the feel and personality of the production. It's challenging to find the right material, and I am almost always second guessing myself.

      I'm playing the role of Robert, the brilliant mathematician in the play PROOF. Since playing Atticus in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD a number of years ago, I've realized that acting is a wonderful opportunity to grow because we have the chance to walk around in another's skin for a while. As you might remember, Atticus was using that image to help his children try to empathize with the many characters who's lives crossed theirs—particularly characters who were vastly different from themselves. It's been wonderful over the years to climb around in so many fascinating characters and see the world through their eyes.

      We're planning on hosting a festival of choral music on Monday, January 15, the day that has been designated to reflect on the life and message of Martin Luther King Jr. We've applied for use of the high school auditorium and have invited some groups—school, church, community—to join the HG Children and Youth Choirs. So far we've gotten tentative commitments from three other choirs in the area.

      I was listening to the radio this morning and heard a lot of talk about fantasy football and about how much fun it is and about ways to have fun on this holiday weekend. At one point in Act I Scene ii of PROOF (sorry, I have PROOF on the brain these days...and will until a few weeks after it closes in October) Catherine's sister is trying to convince her to move from Chicago to New York: “New York is so much more fun, you can't believe it.”

      One of the great perks of working on a play is discovering cool stuff within the script. Little nuggets of wisdom or challenge or stretching. In the opening scene of the second act of PROOF, Robert the father, and his daughter Catherine are in a heated discussion. It begins as a mild disagreement regarding what to eat for dinner, then escalates into a major altercation regarding Catherine's decision to go away to college, and moves fairly quickly into a heated exploration
