Paraphrase Theatre on the Local Scene, Marion and Cedar Rapids, IA

Thanks to all who came out to support the first even ENSEMBLE production produced by Paraphrase Theatre, “Celebrate the Child”.  It was such a joy to work with several good friends from the local theatre scene to bring this expanded and more “theatrical” version of Curt Cloninger’s drama to the stage.

So… what’s next?  Well… nothing… for a little while. I will spend the rest of this winter, spring and summer focusing on the final year of having my daughter, Caitlyn, home… as she finishes her Senior Year.  I don’t want to miss a thing.  Soccer games, concerts, you name it.

When fall hits, and Jana and I are officially empty nesters, I look forward to seeing what God may do with this new phase in the life of the Swenson family AND in the development of Paraphrase on the local scene.  I think it is going to exciting.

Check back now and then, for updates… and if you are interested in getting involved, please let me know of that interest. I will be sure to let you know when auditions or performances are coming up.

Have a great 2014, friends.  Thanks for supporting Paraphrase!
