NOTE:  Andrew Carr wrote this just before opening night. Ready, set…. We’re ready for an audience. As characters Thurston Wheelis & Arles Struvie say, “Come oooon out!” It’s been an enjoyable rehearsal process, but now the fun begins when the most important ingredient in theatre is added: an audience.
