Look at These Nerds Go!

Reckless rehearsals are zipping along EVEN FASTER than our ambitious schedule says they must. It’s incredible – not only how dedicated the cast and crew is, but the nuances that are beginning to come out in this, our SECOND WEEK of rehearsals. Every process, for me, uncovers things in aRead More…

Reckless cast announced!

We had a great turnout at auditions for our December Mainstage production of Reckless by Craig Lucas. I love this show because it recognizes both the beautiful and the really crappy parts of Christmas. And of life. And it’s dark and funny as hell. And it’s sweet and lovely. It’s like a cartoon sandwichRead More…

MEET THE DIRECTOR – JIM WILLIAMS

Jim Williams is an actor’s director. His days (and nights) as a thespian span three decades.  In that time, he has played actor/singer and director and grew a deep passion for both.  On Halloween, one of his most ambitious undertakings will come to life.  The theatrical asylum doors will swingRead More…

MEET THE ACTOR – Scott Hoffman

Actor. Director. Board Member.  In a very short amount of time, Scott Hoffman has made an indelible mark on the HITW canvas.  Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, he moved to CT in 2011 for work.  He wanted to get involved in Community Theater, and one year later, auditioned forRead 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…

MEET THE ACTOR – GENE TELLIER

HITW veteran, Eugene “Gene” Tellier reached back to his adolescence to create One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’s Chief Bromden.  He described his adolescent self as “socially withdrawn and really good at computers and math.” He also suffered the consequences of being named Eugene during a time when 80s nerdRead More…

MEET THE ACTRESS – MARY ROANE

At first glance, Mary Roane may seem an unlikely person to play One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’s lethal, cold Nurse Ratched.  She is approachable, personable, gentile and loving.  However, the New Britain resident has no problem getting under the skin of this iconic character that we all love toRead More…

Human Basketball Hoops and Other Frivolities

After a brilliant closing weekend of Love Loves a Pornographer, the set has been taken down thanks to the masterful leadership of Bill Arnold, HITW volunteers and the collaborative efforts of the Love Loves and Cuckoo’s Nest casts. It was sad to see the beautiful set go, but the cast of Cuckoo’sRead More…

MEET THE ACTOR – RYAN WANTROBA

Making people laugh has always been a Ryan Wantroba standard. He grew up performing in comedies and was a member of his college Improv group. Stepping into the iconic shoes of One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest’s Randal MacMurphy has been a complete 180 and a welcomed challenge for theRead More…
