Sky Lines Makes History

Jaime Rainwater (as Maggie), Jacoya Smith (as Venita), and
Bobbi Leah Tiffner (as Sarah) in the
groundbreaking production of Sky Lines.
Last week, my all-female stage play Sky Lines made history when it became the first ever theatrical production in the history of the college that I teach at, Southern Crescent Technical College. Over 300 people (mostly students) saw a performance - including a sold out matinee! For some, it was the first stage play they ever attended. The entire production was a tremendous success and I was honored to be a part of it.

Three of my students (Jacoya Smith, Jaime Rainwater, and Bobbi Leah Tiffner), worked on the show since December and invested over 200 hours of rehearsal time into the process. The result was three powerful performances that people are still talking about a week later. Yes - there were some missed lines, and the performance space was unconvetional (a lecture hall with supply closets for dressing rooms) - but for three young women with very little dramatic training to not only perform this show, but to do so with so much conviction was truly remarkable and very inspiring.

I couldn't be more proud of them.
