PEMCo performs “Into the Woods”

first_imgTags: cinderella, into the woods, little red riding hood, pasquerilla east music company, PEMCo, Washington Hall Pasquerilla East Music Company’s (PEMCo) production of “Into the Woods” will begin performances Thursday night on Washington Hall’s main stage.Actor Chris Siemann said the musical’s plot is a “mash-up” of fairy tales.“It’s Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel all thrown into the same story,” Siemann said.Auditions for the cast were held at the beginning of the semester and rehearsals began in September, for several nights a week, Siemann said.“On average, for each of us, it was maybe one to three hours a night,” he said. “Some nights I wasn’t even called, but other nights I was there for four hours.”Siemann said he plays the role of the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood, as well as Cinderella’s prince.“The parts were meant to be double cast, for symbolic reasons,” he said. “The wolf interacts with Little Red Riding Hood, and that story plays out the way you think it would. Then I have to kind of quick change into the Cinderella’s Prince — without spoiling too much, he’s exactly who you think he’s going to be. The characters are similar; they have a very similar mindset of instinct, and getting what [they] want.”“Into the Woods” is a unique show because it has a large cast but no chorus, Siemann said.“There are seventeen people and they’re all unique characters, and we all have our own moment, so to speak, on the stage,” Siemann said. “It’s really cool that we get to develop these characters. When you’re in a chorus, you can still develop your character, but you don’t have as much to work with. So it’s really cool that we’re all on even playing ground.”The production is entirely student-run, which creates a unique experience for all the members of PEMCo, he said.“Everyone understands everyone else’s commitments, we’re all doing school, we all have other things that we’re involved in,” he said. “It makes you feel really proud of something, that we’re working as one unit.”Producer and senior Emma Kusters said she began preparations for the production last semester, along with fellow producer and senior Shannon Kirk.“We started last spring, when we reviewed director applications and selected a director for the show, and we picked what show we were going to do,” Kusters said. “Over the summer we were e-mailing, designing set and costumes, and then we had auditions the second week of school.“A large part of my time this summer was revamping the PEMCo website,” Kusters said. “I’ve really been trying to make the information about PEMCo more accessible, so that we can reach students who aren’t already in the PEMCo fold, so we can be pulling in new talent, so that everyone feels welcome to participate and audition in whatever capacity they can.”Kusters said the producers considered several factors in choosing PEMCo’s fall show.“Part of the consideration is always budget,” Kusters said. “We took a pretty big risk this year because usually our fall show is a smaller-scale show. Last year there were only four actors in the show, and the year before that there were seven.“This year we have a seventeen-person cast, and we actually ended up spending even more money on this show than we did on ‘Legally Blonde’ last year, which was our big show last year,” she said.The producers also looked for a show that would appeal to the student body, Kusters said.“Into the Woods’ is all these fairy tales coming together in a sort of fantastical way, in a way that’s also very relevant to the human experience and everyone here,” she said.Kusters said the show has a variety of stunts and visual effects, as well as an elaborate set.“Everyone in the cast has to pitch in to make the set; it was a really a group effort,” she said. “I think this is the best set PEMCo has had in a while.”“Into the Woods” premieres Thursday, November 6th at 7:30 p.m., in Washington Hall. Performances also running November 7th at 7:30 p.m., and November 8th at 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $7 for students and $10 for non-students.last_img read more

Winter storms

first_imgSevere winter weather struck Georgia last week. The dangerous mix of snow and ice that locked down much of the middle and northern parts of the state brought unusual winter worries to farmers in those regions.GreenhousesIn the nursery industry, “we’ve had several greenhouse structural failures in north Georgia,” said Matthew Chappell, a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension nursery production specialist.The damage happened to greenhouse growers who didn’t “incorporate sufficient cross bracing and/or put shade cloth on the outside of a layer of plastic instead of the other way around,” he said. “If you put plastic on the outside of the shade cloth, the snow will usually slide off the structure.”Plant deliveries were delayed due to hazardous road conditions, particularly balled-and-burlapped tree deliveries where the trees are dug out of the ground, wrapped in burlap and shipped. Some growers ran low on fuel that is used to heat greenhouses. But, for the most part, Chappell said he’s received fewer calls about long-term power outages, which surprised him.As long as greenhouse plants are kept above freezing (optimally above 50 degrees Fahrenheit), damage and mortality are less likely. But the prolonged cold weather slowed plant growth, meaning it will take longer to mature them to sellable sizes. Overall, the storm last week wasn’t as bad to nursery growers as the snowfall in March 2009, he said.CattleFor cattlemen, the biggest issue was market interruption. “The snow put a lid on cattle sales,” said Josh White, the executive vice president of the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association. Many cattlemen had to work to keep cattle watered, said Dennis Hancock, a UGA Cooperative Extension forage specialist. Troughs and ponds quickly froze and would refreeze throughout the week. Without proper water intake, the dry hay the animals eat can become impacted in their intestines.“We’re often breaking the ice at a time of day that’s convenient for us,” he said, “before work or after work, which is also when it’s most likely to refreeze quickest. We need to keep fresh water accessible to the animals at all times.” White said that most of the damage seems to be in the western side of the state. “I think the northern part got more snow than ice, so it comes off the trees easier.”Poultry industryFor the poultry industry, “as far as we know at present, it appears we faired pretty well,” said UGA Extension engineer Mike Czarick, who works closely with poultry producers. “It will take a little more time to see what’s happened.”He’s heard that three poultry houses collapsed in Georgia due to the storm. Eleven were destroyed in Alabama, and several in South Carolina.The biggest issue from the storm was getting feed trucks out to farms due to difficult road conditions, he said.OnionsThe cold is keeping Vidalia onion growers in southeast Georgia hoping for warmer weather.“We’ve had some frost injury,” said Reid Torrance, UGA Extension agent in Tattnall County and onion expert. “And the onions aren’t growing very well because of the weather. If the cold continues, the crop will be later.”A later crop would mean that growers lose an extra week or two of selling time, which starts later in spring.last_img read more

IBEW Local 300 Electricians Volunteer at Barre Garden Show

first_imgBarre, Vt. – (March 17, 2008) – The Central Vermont Garden Show recently welcomed electricians from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 300 into the mix.Seven IBEW Local 300 members volunteered nearly five hours apiece March 12 to help set up tables, chairs, displays and brand new electrical mats for the event. Volunteers included Kyle Brown, John Burditt, Tiffany Copley, Randie Dayton, Steve Edwards, Katy Ramstack and Greg Tessier. Copley, Edwards, Ramstack and Tessier are all central Vermonters.”The IBEW was proud to partner with the Garden Show, as several of our constituents reside in the Barre area,” said Local 300 Marketing and Business Development Director Matt Lash, a Granite City native. “Community service dovetails with our unions unwavering commitment to social responsibility and the common good.”The 2008 Central Vermont Garden Show ran at the Barre Civic Center March 14-16 and featured landscape exhibits, a garden railroad, floral competitions and educational workshops. All proceeds benefited the Friends of the Central Vermont YMCA, while the electrical mats – used to safely cover power cords in pedestrian and vehicular traffic ways – were later donated to the City of Barre.”We were so thankful for the help from IBEW electricians,” said Garden Show Chairwoman Jeanne Daniele. “Their much-appreciated volunteerism embodies what union labor is all about ‘hard work’ and certainly helped make our first-ever promotion a success.”ABOUT THE IBEW LOCAL 300Based in South Burlington, the IBEW Local 300 serves 1,200-plus laborers throughout Vermont. The organization is part of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), which is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and represents approximately 750,000 members who work in a wide variety of fields, including utilities, construction, telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads and government.
