Heading to the Bluegrass State!

Yes, that’s right.  We are on the move again.  I just accepted a one-year visiting assistant professorship at Centre College, one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country and home to the 2012 Vice Presidential Debate!  The campus is located in the quaint town of Danville, just 30 miles southwest of Lexington and 80 miles southeast of Louisville. For the fall production, I will be directing The Cherry Orchard in the beautiful 360-seat thrust Weisiger Theatre.

Weisiger Theatre

I will also be teaching directing, acting, dramatic literature, and possibly an advanced course on Johnstone’s work.  Dale and I are very excited about this opportunity.  We will head to Danville next week to meet my colleagues, find a place to live, and attend The Great American Brass Band Festival!  And Centre College’s Norton Center for the Performing Arts (which houses the drama department and the Weisiger Theatre) has an exciting lineup—Alison Krauss, the Public Theatre’s production of HAIR, Yo-Yo Ma, and more.  So come on out and visit us in Danville, listen to some authentic bluegrass music, drink some fine Kentucky Bourbon, see wonderful performances, attend the VP debate, or just ride horses!
