CHANGIN' LANES - 1992 logoChangin' Lanes
Book, Music, and Lyrics
by Mark Houston

May 29 - June 20, 1992
Directed by Ron Martin

New shows, like new gardens, need some careful preparation and tender loving care to flourish. Carpenter Square Theatre is proud to have provided the home for the world premier of Mark Houston's CHANGIN' LANES. This work-in-progress is the composer/author's opportunity to "fine-tune" the show before live audiences.

We have been rehearsing for a frantic four weeks to being this heart-warming, humorous story to life. With the addition of you the audience, we are adding the final ingredient to the magical brew that makes live performances vital. We encourage you to make comments to the creative team. We're interested to know if you liked the characters, were entertained or moved by the performances, and mostly could you follow the storyline?

I will be available after the show to discuss the play with any interested audience members. Your thoughts and comments will be passed along to the playwright who will use these performances and your comments to shape the script for the final re-write he will do later this summer before the show opens in Kansas City at the Unicorn Theatre.
