As a teacher, Tammy Appel doesn’t normally encourage her students to act out. But in 2013, when her Grade 5/6 class at St. Theresa Elementary School in Regina took part in the Enbridge Educational Outreach Program, she was all for it. Put on by the Globe Theatre School, the program immersed her students in the world of theatre and encouraged them to explore their creative sides. “The students were introduced to new skills and developed greater self-confidence. They eagerly anticipated each...

To Dream the Impossible Dream: an iconic song with a haunting melody. The first time I heard it performed was with Hal Linden as Don Quixote, many years ago. That was the beginning of my fascination for the story and love of the music of Man of La Mancha. I am so happy to be back at Globe Theatre designing this show. The artistic challenges create a new way of looking for solutions to this world, which is set in a dank prison during the Spanish Inquisition. We do not know how long some of...

When working in the round, the floor leads the way. For the prison cell in Man of La Mancha, the floor and all of the prop elements need to look primitive, distressed, and rustic. Every piece on the stage needs to lend itself to the transformative nature of the storytelling in the script, with elements suddenly becoming useful tools in the storytelling. I’ve always been interested in the idea of scenic design and its elements as “sculpture.” The prison cell walls tell their story of...

Oh, gosh. I love a good love story. Over a year ago, shortly after finding out I would be directing Salt-Water Moon, an actor friend of mine told me the story of seeing his (now) wife for the first time: “Here I was, totally goo-goo, ga-ga” he said, “falling in love at first sight, while she had no idea I existed.” As the story goes, she walked away and he turned to his friend, eyes wide, heart thumping and gushed, “She’s it. She’s my Mary Snow.” Jacob and Mary are characters that lie deep...

Imagine you are young Jacob Mercer in the summer of 1926. Imagine spending a year’s wages – every penny you have – to buy a suit to impress a girl you haven’t seen for a year. How proud of yourself would you be? How nervous?  Imagine it’s the first suit you ever wore in your life. The fancy Eaton’s store clothier looking down his nose at you until you waved a fat wad of bills in his face. Fancy shoes! A pocket watch! Some fine silk stockings for a gift! Oh, the look on his face! Nothing is...

As director Judy Wensel and I dreamed about Salt-Water Moon, it was always on our minds that Jacob and Mary’s world would be defined by the earth beneath their feet. I wanted there to be a warmth and a responsiveness to the floor that would help ferry our imagination across to a place that inspired a sense of what it meant to be poor and proud in Newfoundland in the 1920’s. I’m going to hate myself for the pun, but I wanted to create a meta-floor. After many false starts, my research...
