Muse of Fire logoElizabeth Bradley of Muse of Fire has released the cast list for their latest production, Henry VI. Click here to view the list (Microsoft Word document). For those not familiar with what they’ve done, you’re missing out on a creative way to interact with one of our largest historic landmarks, Sloss Furnaces, while getting to check out some really cool Shakespeare. Henry VI is scheduled for performances on May 19 & 20.

General casting for the performances are closed according to the official website, however the role of The Boy is still open. They’re asking that The Boy look 11-14; they’re also giving parents an opportunity to review the cut of Henry VI being used before letting their children audition for the part.

Elizabeth has asked that interested parties contact her directly to schedule an audition time.

YP Update: Time to go to “Cool School”

One of the suggestions of the COOL Community Task Force of the Birmingham Regional Chamber of Commerce was to create a Cool School as a way to provide human resources professionals with additional reasons for young professionals to relocate to (or stay in) Birmingham, Alabama for their next job. This will become more important according those studying the future of our workforce, including this paper written by Rebecca Ryan of Next Generation Consulting.

The first Cool School event will be held tomorrow evening (2.20.2007) at WorkPlay  beginning at 5 p.m. The focus of this first meeting will be Birmingham’s music and entertainment industries with a focus on how this information can be leveraged to attract talent. Attendees will also be able to pick up a copy of Birmingham’s “brag book” – a visual ranking of what the chamber says are “…the region’s hottest selling commodities for the young and young at heart.”

The event will be moderated by Malena Cunningham with an industry panel that includes Alan Hunter and Antonio Minnifield and the owners of the Bottletree Cafe. Click here to view the flyer to find out more details.

A few more updates throughout the day.
