Grant Alexander Brown and Charles Benson in Big RiverIt struck me, during Saturday’s matinée performance of Big River at the Timber Lake Playhouse, that theatre is my church, considering I repeatedly wanted to raise my hands in praise and shout “Amen!” at various points, and in ways I used to while attending Sunday services in my younger years. Theatre, for me, is a spiritual experience, and this Big River served as a big-tent revival that reminded me of that truth.

Karl Hamilton, Paige ManWaring, and Matt W. Miles in Big FishThough I’ve watched the film version several times and viewed a staging of its musical earlier this summer, the Timber Lake Playhouse’s production of Big Fish still had me choking back tears despite my (over-)familiarity with the material. That’s in no small part due to the magic in director James Beaudry’s staging, the cast’s endearing rendering of the supporting characters, and Karl Hamilton’s captivating charm as Edward Bloom, the father at the center of this tale of tall tales.

Making Mary: Heather Herkelman Plays Mary Poppins for Quad City Music Guild, August 7 through 16

Valeree Pieper and Heather Herkelman in Mary PoppinsI don’t mean to alarm you, but during my recent interview with Heather Herkelman, the area performer revealed something shocking and rather upsetting: Hawaii, it turns out, isn’t perfect.

“There’s not much of a music scene or theatre scene,” says Herkelman, who returned in February from a year and a half spent living in Honolulu. “It’s beautiful, of course, and there’s just a laid-back happiness, a peacefulness, that made me want to live there. And they have a lot of Hawaiian music, obviously, from their heritage. But that’s about it. And yeah – not a lot of theatre.”

Dual in the Sun: "Greater Tuna," at the Timber Lake Playhouse through July 25

Cody Jolly and Matt Webb in Greater TunaDuring Thursday’s performance of the Timber Lake Playhouse’s Greater Tuna, I enjoyed comparing and contrasting the comedic styles of cast members Matt Webb and Cody Jolly. Each comical in their own rights, Webb and Jolly are distinctly different in their portrayals of the residents of Tuna, Texas, in playwrights Jaston Williams’, Ed Howard’s, and Joe Sears’ two-person, 20-character play about a day spent in this small town.

Holly Moss and Rosie Upton in Peter PanThere’s magic in the Timber Lake Playhouse’s Peter Pan that reached my inner child and set him dancing. Even knowing that Rosie Upton’s title character would fly, I still got chills when scenic designer Benjamin Lipinski’s grand windows were flung open and the forever-young boy floated through them. And that thrill only took a break during the production's intermission, otherwise staying with me during its entire two hours.
