It's been a productive 3 weeks with rehearsals for the upcoming production of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST with the Cardinal Stage Company. It's been fabulous being able to work with a rough construction of parts of the set design. Costumes and other props are still being sorted and created for the show.
With any production there needs to be promotion and marketing in order to help get the word out to the general public in hopes that strong interest will build and attract theatre-goers to come out and see the show during it's 2 week run. I've already been told Oscar-nominated actor Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network and upcoming Batman vs Superman) and Danny Glover (The Colour Purple) will be coming to see the show which is very exciting.
I just recently sat down with WFIU radio at Indiana University yesterday and talked about how I came to be part of the production here in Bloomington and my process as a First Nation actor. It was a very thought-provoking interview and I will be posted an edited version of that radio interview sometime next week.
I'll also be sitting down with Davina Two Bears, a Navajo Ph.D student (and award-winning fried bread maker) who hosts a weekly radio programme titled "Native Spirit" on WHFB 91.3 FM. She'll be interviewing me on Sunday, January 31st at 11 AM (EST). Click on this link http://wfhb.org/listen/ to be taken the radio website and then download the appropriate Webstreams bandwidth to listen to the radio station live from the comfort of your computer. It's highly recommended you have the most current version of iTunes installed on your computer before proceeding to the link.
Chi-Miigwetch for continuing to follow this journey with me.
