aug 11-20 | tremors | eleanor felton, kaitlin williams, ryan scramstad, laura mclean

This year's Tremors Festival showcases four artists whose work you've seen on the PT stage. Eleanor Felton directs Better Angels; she apprenticed at PT in our 2014/15 season (A.D. Rainmaker, Dir ???), and directed A Good Mother on our Mainstage this season. Bull features a couple PT artists on the design side of things; costumer Kaitlin Williams apprenticed at PT in 2009/10, and has appeared many times as an actress (Godspell, Doubt, The Foreigner, It's A Wonderful Life, Smoke On The Mountain); sound design by Ryan Scramstad, who apprenticed in 2013/14 and played Froggy in The Foreigner and Jimmy in The Rainmaker. Laura McLean has stage managed a number of PT shows, starting with Godspell: she takes the director's chair for Dry Land, with Chris Lam in the cast (100 Saints You Should Know, It's A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol On The Air).
