Notes

I’ve always loved to tell stories, on stage, on paper, or in someone’s living room. Each time I work with Chatterbox is a chance to collaborate with amazing people to tell a wonderful story in a creative way. From the table work to finding just the right sound effect, the cast and crew of this show made each step in the process a joy. From day one, they came in with fully realized characters and an eagerness to start.

I am so grateful for the songs Steven Gary composed that set the tone for the story and enhanced the work we were doing. When I first read Bob Arnold’s adaptation of H.G. Wells’s story, I was struck by the idea that the cynic goes on a journey, and, I have to admit, I was fascinated by the climax of the story and just how we were going to present that in audio theater. I had no doubt that the talents of this cast and the Chatterbox crew, along with Steven’s music, could absolutely do the story justice.

My love of audio theater began with Chatterbox. Prior to this company being formed, I had not explored the idea of audio theater. Now, I teach audio theater in my middle and high school theater classes. The students are always affected by listening to a story in a different way. They love the idea of creating their own sound effects and adapting their favorite stories to this medium. I am thankful that Chatterbox Audio Theater remains open for all to explore these stories. The dedication of the performers, the musicians, and the producers is truly what theater is all about.
