Last July CRT won the Gold Ogle Award for the Best Fantasty Production of 2005 with our THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW. It was SO COOL winning, especially since it was such a difficult program to make.
The award is named after Charles Ogle (pictured left, as the Monster) who played the very first Frankensteins Monster in the 1910 Edison production.
This year we have entered our production of DANDELION WINE, which was scripted by Ray Bradbury, for the Fantasy catagory. We were never able to enter the Ogle's before, because we had never produced any sci-fi or fantasy until SLEEPY HOLLOW; so it's fun to be able to enter a show!
Heard some of POWDER RIVER tonight on XM. I don't get a chance to listen too much these days. It was an episode called THE WAGON BOY, which is one of my personal favorites, mainly due to the performance by James McLean. He's only 11, but MAN, can he pull off the dramatic stuff! After hearing him in this, it was a no-brainer that we needed to add him to the cast of regulars. Anyway, it was nice hearing a little of it tonight.
