Oh the exhilaration and stress that comes with preparing for another show! If you like thrills, chills and spills then you absolutely must try it! Producing Verbalized Ink has been an absolute adventure. We've come across so many obstacles that the only explanation is that God has an enormous pot of gold for us at the end of this rainbow. While I won't go into any definite details; I will say that from everyone we have talked to this is only the theater norm. How many times have you pulled up a casting call and saw "Casting- Immediate replacement needed"? How many of you have experienced venue changes, last minute budget shortfalls or devasting printing snafus that made your programs seem more amateur than professional?
It is important that everyone, not just theater professionals, remembers that anything worth accomplishing will have a path filled with pitfalls and obstacles. These things are there only to deter you from your path. They are there to frustrate you to the point that you will not want to continue on the journey. Should you decide to jump over the pitfalls and overcome the obstacles, how sweet the reward will be at the end of it all. Last night I reached a point where I began to feel a little discouraged. So many things were going on and eventhough I did have faith that "victory would be mine,I was beginning to feel a little overwhelmed. So I decided to do what has always worked in the past. I talked to my Daddy. When I arrived at work today he gave me this message: We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. Romans 5: 3-4.
