So I’ve had a bit of exciting news. It turns out that the Watch City Steampunk Festival will be happening again in Waltham this coming May on Saturday the 8th. I’ve spoken to the lead organizers, and they are interested in providing a venue for Mrs. Hawking as part of the Festival! Yay!

It's not a hundred percent set in stone yet, but I got on the Festival planning committee to help make sure it happens, and the response has been very positive, so I'm diving in. This was something I'd hoped to do last year, but that festival never got off the ground and I was disappointed. This year, the event is under new management, and I am offering my own labor as a support, so it's going to actually happen.

This is good because, as I said last year, there will never been better synergy between audience and the subject matter of this show. It will be even a better, more specific fit than Arisia in that way. Hopefully I can get a better timeslot, and more than one show.

And it will be even easier to mount this time. I've just gone about asking my cast if they'd be interested in reprising their roles. I probably won't be able to get everybody back, but the more I get, the more we'll be able to get away with refreshers rather than a full rehearsal process. The set won't need to be built, as it all was saved from the last production. I still own most of the props and costumes, and the rest will be cheaper to replace than it was to buy everything the first time around. And, on top of it all, I will have three months to put it together! Yay!

So this is a really positive development! More detail to come once things get really going.
