Hard to believe it was over 17 years ago, mid-August, 2005…that ACT began an experiment to film our play, “Chump ChangeS.”
While devising a way to commemorate that milestone, and celebrate our intrepid cast, we began to go digging through old notes, scripts and videos. Before long, the memories: some happy/funny, some frustrating /even frightening, some bittersweet, some
downright sad…all started to come flooding back.
As we sort through them now, it seems as good a time as any to start our… “Chump" Chronicles, looking back
on all the events of that fateful summer.
I remember thinking, “Just keep it simple, and this should be pretty straightforward, even easy.” I figured we’d be all finished
in a few weeks or so. As usual, I was wrong...
There was virtually no money, but thanks to commitment of our generous and talented cast, we were - literally - able to make something from nothing.
Shown above, the first day of filming - which was hardly the start of our journey...but rather, the beginning of the end.
