One of the exciting outcomes of the feedback we heard from the community this spring is the recording of a Playhouse "anthem". Susan Baer-Collins and James Boggess created the lyrics and music for the anthem and worked for several weeks with other Playhouse staffers and Delinea Design to get the project off of the ground.
A group of performers was selected to record the song at Ware House Productions a week prior to the creation of the video on our Mainstage. On Monday, June 22, an awesome group of Playhouse actors and crew swarmed the Mainstage for the videotaping. Select actors appeared in costume and everyone wore a smile.
The plan is to use the anthem and video throughout the 2009-2010 Season which is our 85th. Keep your eyes and ears open for the final result--you never know where you might see it!
Thanks to Playhouse alumni in New York, NY, well-wishes for the 85th year of the Omaha Community Playhouse will be edited into a version of the video. You will be thrilled with who you see. We'll post it here on the blog, so you won't have to look too far for it!
