Camelot Theater Does the Classic Sound of Music

My friend Diana Roome sent me this email message:

If you like musicals, Talent’s Camelot Theater production of The Sound of Music (starting next week and running until mid-April) is going to be quite electrifying.  I know — I’ve been watching rehearsals!  In fact, I’ve had the novel experience of being part of them, as a singing nun — which has given me a renewed respect for what it takes to put on a show.  The lead singers and the von Trapp children are outstanding, and the place is oozing with energy and talent.  I realize for some it might be a little far to come all the way to Oregon — even to see such a production! — but thought you might be tickled to see the flyer anyway.

What Draws People to Southern Oregon Wines?


Monday, March 4th, I attended Southern Oregon Visitors Association’s annual marketing symposium.  On the panel about Southern Oregon Wines, I heard Earl from Abacela Wineries explain the “Three Ps” as the answer to why people come to Southern Oregon for the wines. He claims people are escaping from Portland, Precipitation and Pinot!

As most of my guests come from California, (nearly 50%!), I think my visitors are escaping the Three Cs: California, Crowds, and Cabernet!

For more information on our local wines in the Rogue Valley!

Shrek The Musical at the Craterian


Shrek The Musical

Shrek The Musical

Shrek The Musical

This hilarious, high-spirited Broadway hit draws its inspiration from the hugely popular movie, a sardonically witty, yet touching fractured fairy tale featuring a lovable ogre, a wise-cracking donkey, a pint-sized, big-headed villain, and a damsel in distress, who is more than she seems.

Boasting a book and score by award-winning writers Jeanine Tesori and David Lindsay-Abaire, Shrek the Musical is family entertainment at its most sublime!

Taming of the Shrew, my first 2013 OSF Play


Taming of the Shrew

I really liked this performance! I’m glad Taming of the Shrew will run through the entire 2013 season, everyone should get a chance to see it.

It must be hard to do a play everyone already knows, or thinks they already know.  The OSF team did a great job making Taming of the Shrew feel fresh and fun.  It is very accessible to playgoers of all ages; and at various levels of Shakespeare sophistication.

The review in the Daily Tidings does a great job describing the play.  All I will add to it is: Go and enjoy!

The Chipper Experience! at the Craterian


The Chipper Experience!

Chipper Experience!

Chipper Experience!

Last seen as the emcee and star of “Blink,” the irrepressible, carrot-topped Chipper Lowell returns for an evening of breathtaking illusion and side-splitting comedy.

Chipper’s fast-paced, fun-filled, family-friendly show features non-stop one-liners, ad libs and sight gags, in addition to a lot of how-did-he-do-that legerdemain. Chipper is a true original and hilarious comedian.

As one critic exclaimed, “Thank goodness the floor of the theater was clean, because I spent most of the night rolling in the aisles!”

Mt Ashland in February


Sunny and Bright on Mt Ashland

Mt Ashland

Snowshoeing on Mt Ashland

Yesterday, was a perfect day for frolicking in the snow on Mt Ashland.  Locals and visitors alike were out on the mountain downhill/Nordic skiing, boarding and snowshoeing, taking in the sunshine and the views of the Siskiyou and Cascades.

The best kept secret in southern Oregon, if it’s not raining, we have sunshine! Now that might seem like a dumb thing to say, especially if you’re from California.  But in places further north starting, say Eugene, no rain can still mean a gray sunless dreary day  — for what seems like months on end.  But not here in the Rouge Valley!
