Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to play a small role in a local production of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center. It was an amazing experience and we were fortunate enough to be directed by the very talented Tim Riggs.
If you're at all familiar with EPAC, then you're more than likely already familiar with Tim (or at least his impressive body of work). "Cuckoo's," though, was Tim's first time in the director's chair and I consider myself fortunate to have watched him at work. To put it mildly, he was a joy to work with. He has a gentle spirit about him and a sincere love for the craft - and story - that makes it more than easy to want to join forces with him to present the best work of theater possible.
Tim's had a busy year - he's a newlywed and a newly dad - and I was glad our schedules finally aligned to get him behind the microphone to share not only his story, but his approach to acting, directing, and the stage.
And to also share the story of how John Denver made him miss his class photo.
