MEREDITH — Erin Lovett Sherman ran off and joined the circus. Luckily for the Streetcar Company, the longest running community theatre company in the Lakes Region, she came back.
In addition to her work as the Artistic Director of ARTSFEST, and the Director of Youth and Outreach Programming and Circus Arts Coach at New England Center for Circus Arts, Erin is putting the cast and crew of Barnum, Streetcar's latest production, through the paces of being part of the circus.
The Streetcar Company is bringing Barnum, a Circus Musical, to the stage at the Inter-Lakes Community Auditorium May 1st, 2nd and 3rd, and Erin has her work cut out for her. In addition to the usual work memorizing lines, perfecting songs, and figuring out where and when to be, the cast working with Erin is learning stunts, magic, dance and yes, even swinging from the rafters. They couldn't have a better instructor, as Erin is a dancer, aerialist, performing artist, choreographer, educator, and director.
Erin is not alone in bringing this production to the local stage. As a community theatre group, Streetcar is fortunate to have lots of local talent and volunteers to work with, as the show's director Jessica Alward and Producer Raelyn Cottrell, can attest to. You will not want to miss Bo Guyer bringing the character of P.T. Barnum to the limelight, Chris Fernandez as the Ringmaster or the soulful blues being sung by Cecilia Zarella.
