On the stage and behind the scenes

The NarroWay Blog

Even beyond great entertainment, a NarroWay show is often thought-provoking. Read on to find some food for thought straight from the NarroWay stage.

Chapter 49: Part 2 - Life Lessons from the NarroWay Stage

REBECCA –
If aptly applied, these final five of the top ten corrections made on the NarroWay stage might transform your life.
Rehearsal Principle 6: “COME PREPARED!”

BIRDIE –
The Bible says “how can you prepare for what you don’t know is going to happen?” (Ecclesiastes 8:7) That’s not what this NarroWay correction is about.

REBECCA –
This correction is used when a cast member knows we have a rehearsal, knows he has lines, received his blocking, was given a costume, was sent a practice track and still comes in clueless.

BIRDIE –
We aren’t talking about someone who tries and messes up. We’re talking about someone who doesn’t try.

Chapter 34: The Little Things

REBECCA –
7 years = 61,320 hours. And most of what makes up 61,320 hours will never make it into a chapter. It’s the little stuff. But, without it, the big stuff doesn’t happen.

BIRDIE –
1997 –
We renovated the amphitheater and opened “Two Thieves & A Savior” and “Jerusalem In Lights.”

REBECCA –
1998 -
We were told that we needed to secure something called a “domain name” and establish something called a “website” – with no clue as to how significant that would be to the future!

Would You Have Done What Delilah Did?

 

Our immediate reaction to that question is: “Of course not!”  But wait. Take a closer look at the situation with Delilah, which led to her betrayal of Samson. There is some debate regarding whether or not Delilah was a Philistine. She lived in the Philistine territory known as Sorek, located between the Israelite camp and the Philistines.

It is unlikely that an Israelite woman would have ventured away from her people, so, in writing NarroWay's SAMSON, Delilah is portrayed as a Philistine. 

Judges 16: 4-5
"After this it came about that he (Samson) loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah. The lord of the Philistines came up to her and said to her, 'Entice him, and see where his great strength lies and how we may overpower him that we may bind him to afflict him. Then we will each give you eleven hundred pieces of silver." (NASB)
 
WHO KNOCKED ON DELILAH'S DOOR?
The rulers of her nation.
