Heroes Set Construction is Underway!


Above is the set for the 2013-14 season’s first play Heroes (starts Sept 4th) by Gérald Sibleyras, translated by Tom Stoppard. Our production interns have been hard at work on this beautiful set.

The set was designed by Kent Goetz and has been executed by our production staff.The roofing of the patio is made of stapled cardboard tubes that have been painted to resemble terra cotta by our scenic charge Tim Borden. The whole set is weathered to resemble a rustic building in the south of France.

So far, the production team has put nearly 50 hours of work into this set. This includes cutting out wood, piecing it together, painting and prop gathering. We are all very excite to see the finished product.

Wrapping Up

Hello KTC Blog Readers,

Ally here for my last post as a Kitchen Theatre Company intern. Wow, it’s weird to say or rather type. The past few weeks have been a surreal blur. I took a week-off and went home to Texas and then I came back and had just 3 weeks left in Ithaca. And here I am on Thursday June 13th looking June 14th, my final day in the office, face to face.

I’m not really sure if I have the words to describe my year here aptly. In fact, I don’t really know how to describe this experience well and do it justice. So I’m going to make a list. Yes, a perfect last list to articulate my time as a Kitchen Theatre Company Intern

  1. Incredible– Incredible because I got to spend a year in this beautiful town. Incredible because I had the privilege to spend 10 months surrounded by wonderful people. Staff, interns, board members, actors, technicians, new friends, Ithacans. I’ve been introduced, accepted, befriended and taught by so many people that it’ll be hard to imagine what it will be like without them.
  2. Fun– I chased waterfalls, I faced my fear of heights, danced the night away, poured wine, tasted delicious food and  made new friends. A lot of fun has been had during my time here.. This experience has been tons of fun, more fun than I ever expected an internship to be.
  3. Adventurous– I know it seems like a weird word but for me it’s fitting. I moved to Ithaca with 3 suitcases, a bag of books, and only knew one person in the entire city. Taking such a leap of faith was terrifying to me when I was leaving Texas a year ago and now, I am so so glad that I did.
  4. Educational – My senior year of college I decided that I wanted to run a theatre company. And I had no idea what that really meant. After my year here, I’ve learned about grants, working with Actor’s Equity, accounting, trades, advertising and many many more valuable skills. It would take me a very long time to write down everything I learned this year but the point is this: I learned a lot. And even thinking about it amazes me.
  5. Blessed– I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I really couldn’t have. I spent a year in a wonderful town, meet some amazing people, acted in a professional theatre, worked, laughed, played hard and it was the one of the best years of my life. I would not trade this experience for anything in the world.

So there they are: incredible, fun, adventurous, educational and blessed. The perfect words I could find to describe this experience. If you are reading this and we met this year I have one final thing to say to you. Thank you. Thank you for getting to know me, asking me questions, being so friendly, telling me how much you enjoyed Crooked and for so many more things.

To the Kitchen family: thank you all so, so much. I am very lucky to have spent time with and to have gotten to know you. I can’t believe this went by so quickly!

And to wrap this all up with a pretty little bow: goodbye and thanks for the memories.
