New news!

September 6, 2008

 SO much news… first : the open call was a resounding success! There were ( and still are) so many questions on the horizon for The Hub; one of large ones was: Was there a community of artists to draw from outside the beltway? Obviously not every actor on the planet lives in DC, but lets face it, the professional theatre community is by-in-large in the city. We are so thrilled not only by the sheer volume of attendees to our audition in Reston, but by the quality of artist as well. Yay! We were moved, inspired and all in all so thrilled to get down to casting our reading season as well as build up our casting data-base.

Other exciting news is our growing relationship with The Greater Reston Arts Center. They’re graciously hosting a number of our readings. Check out their website for information about this great organization and  their amazing exhibits. As they say: “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship”. The Hub can also be found at the Reston Used Book Shop, another champion for the arts and a great book store to kill more than a few hours in. They’ve re-sold books for over 30 years and  they might be the only book store I know of with their own mascot and fan-club! Bibliophiles unite!

All in all we’re clicking along at a great pace. I’ll be back soon with information about our first mainstage season as well as info about the directors we’re lining up!

Talk soon…

the timpani is still going

September 3, 2008

There are many things in the works here at The Hub.  Those many things are still not 100% in writing yet, so we are careful not to post to early… but it is looking good and we are very excited.

Stay tuned for some nice juicy information sharing happening soon.
