I photographed the New College Institute graduation on Wednesday night at the Rives Theatre in Uptown Martinsville.

Virginia Governor Tim Kaine was in town again and was the speaker for graduation. The last three photos include Governor Kaine. It was a very nice event and congratulations to all of the graduates. The college is making a huge difference in the lives of it students as they can earn degrees from many different schools without leaving town. You can visit their website at New College Institute.

The Carlisle Players held their final performance of Into The Woods tonight (actually last night since it’s 1 a.m.). They did an outstanding job with the play. As a Marine, the greatest compliment you can give is to say it was outstanding. In a Marine Corps fitness report, “outstanding” is the best it can get.

If you missed the play, it was great entertainment. Congratulations to Candace Owen-Williams, her entire staff, and the students. There were some outstanding individual performances. I will post photos from the performance and the dress rehearsals on Monday. Sunday is a day off and I’m taking my lovely wife to lunch and a movie.

I never (I say never because I have never done it before) single out a student at Carlisle for a great performance, but you have to see Into the Woods this weekend on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00 p.m. in the Marshall Fine Arts Building if for no other reason than the cow is outstanding.

Catch your breath now because I know that was a long lead sentence. Breathe, breathe, breathe. Really, it’s okay.

The student who plays the cow in the Jack and the Beanstalk part of the play is amazing. She is a wonderful actress. She is in character at all times making different faces depending on what’s happening. She is simply outstanding. The sign of a great actor is being in character when you think no one is looking. She does it perfectly.

I posted the last photo because I thought it was utterly ridiculous. Yes, it’s a horrible joke, but I had to do it.

The Carlisle players will be performing Into The Woods on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00 p.m. in the Walker Auditorium in the Marshall Fine Arts building (everything is named at a school that is not supported by the government, because someone was kind enough to donate money to pay for it).

It’s 12:08 a.m. and yes I am still working (don’t pay any attention to the time on the blog because I can’t figure out how to make it show the correct time). Actually, I am watching the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Seattle Mariners baseball game on MLB.TV on part of my 24-inch Mac screen while working on the remainder. Have I mentioned I am a baseball fan? I watched the St. Louis Cardinals game while I was sorting the play photos and the Cardinals won 5-2 over the Mets. They (Mets) weren’t really amazing tonight. Go Cardinals.

Anyway, I only saw the first act of the play tonight and will go back for Thursday night’s dress rehearsal to see the second and third acts. It’s a great play and you are really missing a fun evening if you don’t go see the performance on Friday or Saturday. 

If you like theater, this is really a must see it (I spell it theater because I am an American. The British spell it theatre. I love the British folks, but I will go with my country. Afterall, I am a Devil Dog, hard charging, Marine, OoohRaahhh).

If you want to find out more about the play you can see my previous post.

These photos are from the Carlisle tennis match this afternoon. I will put the photos on my website in the morning. All of the photos were shot with the Olympus E-3 and 50-200mm lens with a 1.4 extender.
