A new theatre company based in San Antonio, TX.
We most recently produced 'Eternity in the Hearts of Men' at the Seacoast Fringe Festival in Portsmouth, NH.
Check back here for news about upcoming productions.
To Here From ‘Eternity’
The end of 2010 is fast approaching. Here’s some quick updates on what the next year holds for SSTC:
You can check out some photos from last month’s production of Eternity in the Hearts of Men at the bottom of this post. The show was very well received, if not quite as well attended. So we’re looking for another venue in Massachusetts to remount the show and get more people to see this solid production.
We’re also still scouting a venue for our return to San Antonio. Anyone know a good location?
We’ll be posting more details about upcoming projects right here, so check back in!

We’re very pleased to announce that Shadow Show has an event coming up next month. SSTC is producing Eternity in the Hearts of Men, a new piece about life and death with a sci-fi twist.
Unfortunately for all our Texas fans, this one’s happening in Burlington, Massachusetts. Not to worry, San Antonio. The move isn’t permanent. We just know how to take an opportunity when it comes along. In fact, we’re planning our return to the San Antonio theatre scene for early 2011. Check back here for more information on that.
Auditions for Eternity in the Hearts of Men will be held Wednesday, October 20th at Atlantis Playmakers Theater. For more information, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Looking Back, Looking Ahead
The Children’s Hour closed on Sunday. Thanks to the cast, the production staff, and everyone who came out to see it - you all made our first production an enormous success.

A Successful Opening!
The Children’s Hour opened last night and I couldn’t be more pleased. The show is great, and the actors got to play to an almost-sold-out house. The audience seemed to really be into it - a couple shocking moments elicited gasps from the crowd!
A special thanks goes out to Linda Davila for donating/organizing the opening night food and wine reception. It made the night really special and everyone had a great time.
You can check out this mini-review from the San Antonio Express-News Arts Blog. Performances continue through next weekend. Hope to see more of you there tonight!

Night of Motion Shots
We’re getting into crunch time for the show, but we’re in a really great place for opening. There are a lot of little details we have to nail down to make everything as smooth and fluid as possible but we will definitely get there. Our first dress rehearsal was tonight and went beautifully, aside from one of our actresses getting a freak nosebleed and bleeding on a costume. BUT, our director noted, blood on costumes is a sign of good luck. So I guess we’re in really good shape!

All the graphic designing you see on this page, including our postcards, posters, and soon-to-be programs, have been done by the multi-talented Alex Fredrichs, who graduated in graphic design at Loyola University (our college). We got the program designs in recently and I’m always blown away by what she produces. Dan and I did not want to go into this show without knowing whether Alex would design for us - her designing was as necessary for the show as actors! And it’s really added something great and professional to our production.

The music for this show, originally composed by Magnolia Music House over in Nawlins, is really amazing and adds a beautiful underscoring and a generally cool “vibe” to the show. Joe Shirley did an original theatre composition for a show Dan wrote that was produced in New Orleans, Eternity in the Hearts of Men, and we were ecstatic when he said he’d be on board to design for our show. Joe always seems to give an insane amount of thought to everything he does, and even composing from another city, the music fits perfectly.
This next image is one of my favorites, and was done completely by accident. It was the first time we were working under the light shift for the scene change.
Can’t tell exactly who these people are.
All in all I’m extremely pleased and excited for opening night of our show. This Friday!!! Time does fly when you’re having fun!
