Reunions, Anniversaries & Callings

As I write, I’m winging my way to my 25th reunion at George Fox University. I happened to graduate in their centennial year, so this is also the university’s 125th anniversary. I’m looking forward to it for all the typical reasons: seeing old (well, not too old) friends and professors, and seeing improvements to the campus. I’m really looking forward to running the Foxtrot 5k with my brother! But I get a great bonus for this reunion! I get to perform for the current students in their chapel, in the very auditorium where I saw a one-man play for the first time.  Now, performing one-man plays has become a major component of my 21-year career in the performing arts. I don’t know if I’ll inspire anyone to build a career on one-person plays, but I am praying I’ll inspire them to do anything, and go anywhere that the Lord will call them to go.

Actor Scoop! ~ Interview with Rich Swingle!

For a while now, the promotion of the movie, Providence, for Faith Flix Films has been on, on this blog, and, I must admit that in interviewing some of the cast members, I’ve learned so much (you can read the two prior interviews here and here). I’ve grown as a person, and as a blogger in a way I find gratifying. I hope that’s your experience as you follow these interviews. Join me and Rich Swingle below in this lovely and inspiring chat. Miranda: Hello Rich! Glad to have you visit TBAP today. Please tell us a bit about yourself. Rich: This month marks 20 years during which I have received all of my income from the performing arts and applied theatre, so getting to do this interview feels like a bit of an anniversary gift from the Lord. Thanks for your part in that, Miranda! I’ve written or helped develop a dozen one-man plays, which I’ve performed around the world. Those and my workshops have taken me to 28 nations. Since 2010 I’ve performed …
