When Mary Trotter, a trusted friend and colleague, asked me to act as a guest artist for this phenomenal show (which also happens to be one of my favorite books of all time), I could not even imagine turning the opportunity down. I am so looking forward to working as the dialect and movement coach for the University of Central Missouri's production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime and to working with both Mary and her students in a matter of weeks.
It is so exciting to reread both the book and the script again and again because each read gives more detail than the last - greater informing the possibilities for vocal and physical exploration.
Though Covid has made producing live theatre such a challenge, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to travel to UCM and work in person with these incredibly talented young artists. Here we go!
