"A Thousand Words" at the Nebraska Repertory Theatre

We had the pleasure of interviewing some of the cast and crew from "A Thousand Words" playing now at the Nebraska Repertory Theatre.  It is an amazing show that is the first all-student written, designed and performed as a result of a process called "devised theatre." The play is a lovely and touching story told by "Grandpa" who is the main character and puppet in the play.  Overall there were over 100 puppets in this play, along with live actors onstage.  It is an amazing play that you will most likely not see something like it again, so get your tickets now and go! 

We spoke with Jill Hibbard, Puppet Designer and Fabricator; Andy Park, Director; Kate Schini, Assistant Director; and Michaella Deladia, Actor and also a writer and designer of the devised theatre process.  

We thank all of our guests for coming onto the podcast and talking to us.  As well as a special thank you to Julie Hagemeier, General Manager of the Nebraska Repertory Theatre, and a special thank you to Jillian Carter at Appearing Locally.  Both Chris and Sheri have been partnering with Appearing Locally to assist with reviews for the Appearing Locally Blog located here:
