The Bus is Off and Running

Great opening weekend in San Ramon!  Now we move the whole show to Berkeley to perform at Freight and Salvage.  The actors will have a few days off in between--much deserved after a long tech week.  It was so thrilling to hear the audiences sing-a-long at the end of the show with the lyrics "Go Green" and "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rethink!"

Final Dress Rehearsal!!

This evening "The Magic School Bus Live! The Climate Challenge" will have it's final dress rehearsal.  The tech process has been long, but very rewarding thanks to the incredible work of our designers, actors and directors.  For this show, we are integrating music, sound cues, light cues and projections, so there was a lot of work to be done to make sure that every cue syncs up with the next.

Welcome to Nina's Notes

The Magic School Bus Live! The Climate Challenge rehearsal process is going great!  Our incredible playwright, Scott Elmegreen is in town from New York and is working with the director and the cast to perfect the script. It is a real treat for the actors to work in the room with a playwright in a completely collaborative process.
