On tap this week is director, set designer, painter, performer, and also Assistant Director of Economic Development for the City of Lafayette, Indiana, John David Collier.
We talk about the thrills and challenges of participating in theatre as actor, director, and set designer. John’s experience with Civic Theatre has run for 35 years and 93 productions now, and he has seen a great deal of the changes and notable personalities along the way. We spend far too much time congratulating each other on our work, but John’s sets are memorable and gorgeous.
We also discuss Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette’s 90th anniversary celebration this year. They are presenting a special event (the return of Civic Theatre, if you will!) called “Cabaration” on Saturday, May 22nd at 7:30 pm, outdoors in the Civic Theatre parking lot.
