Thomsen Talk: April 2016

Stories begin. Stories continue. One of the final lines in CAMELOT is “What we did will be remembered.” Whether our production of CAMELOT will be remembered throughout the ages remains to be seen, and even if my mind goes tomorrow, which is likely, working on CAMELOT provided me with one of the most satisfying theatre … Continued

QCT SPOTLIGHT: Aaron Speckhart

Ever since he can remember, Aaron Speckhart has been fascinated by the art of storytelling. Books, movies, video games, television; so long as there is a good story to be told, Aaron is drawn to listen. Until, of course, he discovered CAMELOT.

Thomsen Talk: February 2016

“One brief shining moment that was known as Camelot….rehearsals!” Rehearsals can be exhausting, tedious, and exhilarating! Often all in the same night! The job of an actor is to lift the words off the page and breathe life into them. What that life could possibly be is discovered throughout the rehearsal process. In rehearsals we … Continued


Nic Starman has quite a few jobs on his resume: life guard, Air Force mechanic, chiropractor; now he’s adding something a little bit different to that list: actor.
