Meet the Actor: Rachel Teagle as Rachel

Next up in our “Meet the Actor” series is Rachel Teagle – who plays Rachel, the lead in Reckless by Craig Lucas. Rachel’s got it tough (both Rachels do, actually) – she’s in every scene and only gets to leave the stage once for about 3 minutes. Here she isRead More…

Sin While Ye May, For Tomorrow We Shall Be Tranquilized

The actors have been fighting on set. And it’s a good thing. And what’s this? Could it be a marriage in the milieu? At least they have a Jesus present; as God intended. Shall we be doomed to the terrible burden of sanity? Find out at HITW’s production of One Flew OverRead More…
