An article by Tim Threlfall was recently published in the summer edition of the SDC Journal (Stage Directors and Choreographers), which comes out quarterly. The article, entitled “A Matter of Timing: Directing the Flood Effect at Tuacahn Amphitheatre,” is the second one that Tim has had published in the journal. The SDC Society is a national organization that represents their union. Tim also contributed the photos in the article, both of which feature plays that he directed at Tuacahn that used the “flood” to stunning effect, Big River and South Pacific. Although you must subscribe to the journal to see it online, there is a copy in the front office with the photos and article tagged.
