Episode #5: What It's All About – Theatre Is Essential!
They're from Staten Island, now they live in Wyoming and run a theatre company! Julia Conte and her dad, TotP Artistic Director William Conte, talk about the inspirations animating the theory and practice of TotP in a wide ranging, somewhat freewheeling discussion occasionally punctuated by the yap of a very spoiled dog. Ay, you don't wanna miss it!
Hi Bill. I am a patron. I attended Sartre’s No Exit. I appreciate that you’re trying to bring productions like these to Casper. The heavens know how desperately it needs a little culture.
I have a historically themed Halloween party business I’m starting that I think can actually be quite lucrative in time that flopped for various reasons last fall in Casper. Fortunately, I’m tenacious or foolish enough to try to learn from the same and try again with improvements, one of which I hope might be a collaboration with your troupe.
I thought it might be right up your company’s alley, moreso than other competing theater groups, but also in the interest of common cultural creation.
Might there be a time that I could visit with you after 5:30 in the evening on a weeknight or on the weekend by phone or in person?
Thank you for reaching out, Joshua. If you’d like to come over to the studio and chat, I can meet you before our 6PM rehearsal tomorrow night if that works for you.
Hi Joshua, I can meet tonight at our studio around 5:30. Please let me know if that works for you.
