The Tucson Community Theater Company's performance of "The New American Candidate" runs for 3 weeks, not 3 days as the article states. Sept 14 through the 30th. Also, the writer had another typo, as "100 local talent" should be "100% local talent."
So proud of Mr. Almquist and the work he does, the work all our teachers do, in our community. Thank you, Art, for being a stellar example of the importance of teaching and the arts in our schools!
Too bad we don't have a HS Theatre month where all the drama departments compete with their best show. I had friends that invited us to a Desert Christian performance at TCC and it was phenomenal! Would be fun to showcase all this local talent.
He is the best and the performances he creates are incredible! Don't miss any performances of his students at Tucson High!
Great artists and teachers. They support and encourage you to explore your inner creativity.
Nice picture guys. No framing, no interesting angle, no drama captured.
Jesus christ, it almost makes the article look good by comparison.
I assume the process went like this:
"Hey we have to write this article about this Live Musical or this Man-theatre or whatever... what do we do?"
"Easy, we don't talk to ANY of the students, take only one picture which shows off none of the things talked about by the single person we'll ask about any of this."
"Well what's the point?"
"I dunno'. To be honest this is don't really matter none as we assume that it's been this way for years, and it's not like this is new or whatever."
"Couldn't we ask?"
"No, and shut up, I need to take the single picture we're going to use for this article. *snap* Okay, now we can leave."
Although I'm probably just salty as I'm not in it. [>:/
In all seriousness I hope that C.R.E..A.M. is not legally protected because what these guys are doing is awesome. Tucson needs more people like this!

Hopefully U of A can get it back together. Meanwhile, thank you Etherton!
The article does capture the enthusiasm and love of theater present within the cast and Director.I trust readers recognize the use of the word "amateurs" as stated by the reviewer 'in the true sense of the word' means someone who engages in a pursuit on an unpaid basis not someone who is inept.The cast does a beautiful job. Go and see for yourself!
Please correct the director's name to Mike Wilkinson for the well done Mousetrap article. Thanks, Ross Rohde
I really appreciate being able to visit artists in their workspaces and some even in their homes to view their artwork and talk to them about it, making that personal connection.
Primo! Margaret Reagan has done it again!! What a wonderful write-up of the Artist-run (with Dirk Arnold's leadership, once again) Open Studios Tour. And our Nancy C. highlighted! Amazing Kudos! Nancy, Greta, Dirk, Margaret, and all of us Tucson Artists willing to face the heatful elements for the next two weekends. Crowds and Sales welcomed!!
Thanks Margaret....Your attention to the work of local artists is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for caring, Pasquale. As you may have noticed, I've been invited to give a talk about YOU, FASCINATING YOU at a yacht club in Naples, Florida. Interest in the novel and musical continues to build.
I don't know what happened to my old friend Jim Hatch that I told you I would get you in touch with 3-4 weeks ago. He never got back to me, but I m sure I will hear from him one of these days. Good luck with Margit & Pasquale.
Great exhibit, don't forget Kevin Lucero Less' Hollywood Nocturne 8:45, moody - menacing - and ethereal.
We saw it about a week ago with agnostic friends and found it to be quite boring. We quipped on leaving that it was without intermission to prevent the audience from leaving at half time. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
The Etherton Gallery is a wonderful resource for photographic art. Fortunately, while the University of Arizona Library system's horribly mismanaged Center for Creative Photography continues downward in a "death spiral", we still have the Etherton Gallery!
