Amy Rene Byrne, co-director, reporting on TIC progress. The show is going… well, to risk sounding braggadocios, the show is going GREAT! It is smart, and silly, and intelligent, and wacky, and witty and weird. Our cast members’ training is proving invaluable to the process. They are smart, these recruits. They will make us proud.
In Honor of Opportunity
As a group we’d like to take a moment to thank the Opportunity Mars Rover for its service to NASA. The little rover that could was only estimated to last 90 days in the Martian climate. But our buddy made it 15 YEARS! By sending us hundreds of thousands of images of Mars, Opportunity reshaped our understanding of the planet. In June a dust storm left Opportunity’s solar panels covered in dust and unable to recharge its batteries— which was the beginning of an honorable end for our little friend. THANK YOU!
This is Amy Rene Byrne and Richard Cannaday, Directors of Star Tours! Explore the Mysteries of the Universe. As scheduled, three INTREPID travelers arrived this morning at the BTE Theatre School to embark on a read-through of the script. Little did they know the full scale of what awaited them. The day was full of introductions, script work, envisioning, and— of course— much laughter.

We are confident that our crew will be successful in their mission. They have the guts, the brains, and the exact correct amount of silly humor. The following week will be rigorous. We will examine every facet of the script. We will explore new and exciting directions. We must remain physically and mentally alert. We trust they are ready for this undertaking. The following weeks will prove vital to the success of their mission.
