TLT’s latest production, ‘Knock Knock’ – The Mouse

Published 10:46 am Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Editor’s note: Elvin Clark, one of the actors in Tryon Little Theater’s production of “Knock, Knock,” has been writing a blog about the experience. Over the next several weeks, the Bulletin will publish some of his posts to give insight into the process of creating a community theater production. “Knock, Knock” runs April 19-22 and April 26-29 at the Tryon Little Theater’s Workshop.
Subject – set decoration. Verdict – wow!
Set decoration is an art all its own. Over the weekend, TLT’s talented group of demented people, including Rebecca Davis, Jody McPherson, Mimi Alexander, Alexa Hughes, Jerreth Emory and possibly a cast of thousands, outdid themselves on the set of “Knock Knock.”
When the cast walked in last night, all we could say was “Wow!”
In life, clutter is deemed a bad thing. When it comes to two middle-aged men who haven’t left their home in 20 years, clutter’s status becomes elevated to the main decorating theme. Our team of dementors (mostly women, please note) apparently had a wonderful time getting into the minds of middle-aged men and determining what their home would look like after 20 years without a woman’s touch.
