Has anyone out there in the world of SMNetwork spent time with Tent Theatre in Springfield, MO? Just looking for thoughts and insight. It seems like they have a very cool set up which really excites me.

Hey Ashlee!!
I went to school in Springfield and worked at Tent the summer before they went Equity. It was my first professional SM gig so it was scary at the beginning but the people I got to work with were amazing. First of all, the two musicals they are mounting, Leap of Faith, and Hairspray have an AMAZING musical director. REDACTED is great to work with, fun and focused on the task at hand. REDACTED, the choreographer is also very talented, sassy and will definitely push the cast with every single piece of movement. REDACTED, who is directing Hairspray was one of my mentors when I went to school and has a strong passion for a naturalistic directing style where she allows the actors to make their own choices and not necessarily pre-block everything they're going to do. Overall, I had a fun summer doing Tent. I hope this helps.
