Theatre West had just opened the world premiere of Our Man in Santiago by Mark Wilding when the mayor and governor instructed everybody to stay home. We had to close it after opening weekend. We had to end our run of Storybook Theatre’s new musical, The Adventures of Peter Rabbit, too. Schools closed so we had to cancel all of our field trips.
That got us thinking, let’s open up a storytelling challenge to our company members with the topic “Cancelled” and see what they come up with. Here are some of the stories, all written and told from members’ homes. Enjoy! (and stay tuned for when we re-open Our Man in Santiago. The show will go on!)
