__________________________________

The show will be double cast locally in St. Louis. Both casts will perform 2-3 shows. I am truly hoping we can perform live and the individuals of the two casts will provide understudies for the other if needed. Safety and health of the cast, family, and audience is my primary concern. 

 

If we need to have our final performance virtually, you will send video of your individual lines and songs which will be edited to create a final video of the musical. The video musical would be shared with family and ticketed online or get sponsors. 

 

If live, we will go into final rehearsal schedule mode (schedule to be announced) and I will book a performance venue and tickets will be available on Brown Paper Tickets. 

 

I will decide which way we are headed by mid-October.  

 

It is a lot to wrap my mind around, but it can be done…kinda wondering how we could make it a Toy Drive for kids in need... hmmmm… I welcome your thoughts!

The Story of Blanket Theatre

 

Way back when Caroline was just a little squirt growin’ up in the Ozarks, she would regularly round up willing neighborhood wranglers to put on neighborhood shows (you know - homey stuff that gets everybody involved). Years passed and in 1987 she began directing children’s theatre classes in her back yard and called it BLANKET THEATRE.

 

Parents, grandparents, brothers, and sisters would bring blankets to sit on and watch the performances. Her lop eared bunny named Theo was the pre-show mascot hopping from blanket to blanket keeping the audience entertained. Folks walkin’ by would see the commotion and lean on the fence to take it all in...kind of picturesque, if ya’ know what I mean. 

 

In 1995, BLANKET THEATRE moved into a high-falutin’ storefront in Clayton and Caroline continued to teach theatre classes and produce shows for families...you still had to sit on a blanket! A couple of years passed and just like too much plate spinnin’ along with teaching drama at a school, she decided to let BLANKET THEATRE sleep for awhile. Well...the nap is over!
