The View

Every once in a while I get the opportunity to take photos for one of the local community theatre‘s productions. I enjoy being a part of the shows on stage and would like to volunteer backstage but my schedule is too erratic to be of any reliable help. So, I volunteer my time to take the cast photos. Sometimes they also need photos taken of the show itself. I’ve only done it a few times but I wonder if I’ll ever feel completely comfortable with making noise and moving around during a show. I feel very distracting to the performers and relieved there is no one in the audience trying to watch.

The View from the Bridge - Barry Borgstrom

The last one I did was The View from the Bridge. It was a wonderful show. I have seen many – if not all – the actors perform before and I think some of them were challenged this time around. I don’t say that because I saw stress in their performance but, rather, because it was new characters for many of them. And they did very well! I felt nostalgic seeing Barry Borgstrom back on stage as the Lawyer and Narrator of the show. I grew up in the house across from him and enjoyed hearing him sing on his porch and seeing him perform as Don Quixote in La Man of La Mancha. The two young stars of the show impressed me as well. Jelena Jensen shone with a natural Brooklyn accent as the 171024_The View From a Bridge (27)sweet young niece, Catherine, and Carter Gulseth played a dreaming Italian immigrant, Rodolpho. The entire cast deserved the sold out nights and standing ovations.

The next production is a joint Cranbrook Community Theatre and Key City Theatre production, The Producer’s. It’s going to be fantastic!
