It’s been in the works for quite a few weeks now, but I have received official confirmation! Mrs. Hawking will be seeing its next performance at the 2015 Watch City Steampunk Festival!


This Festival first happened in Waltham, Massachusetts in 2011, as a tribute to the city’s historical ties to the industrial revolution. This makes it the perfect venue to host a story like Mrs. Hawking’s, which embodies the steampunk sentiment in its action-adventure reinterpretation of the style and culture of the Victorian era. We’re so excited to present our show directly to fans of the genre, and we think it’s going to make an even bigger stir than it did at Arisia.

The Festival will be happening in and around Waltham Commons, spilling over onto Moody Street, and daytime admission will be free! It will be full of steampunk related events and exhibitions, including musical groups, dance shows, lectures, and craft demonstrations, in addition to our fabulous play. It’s also looking like we will have two performances over the course of the day, so you will have two free-of-charge opportunities to see us!

Most of our original cast will be returning, though sadly a few of our wonderful actors will not be joining us for this encore performance. We will be holding auditions for these roles, which include some major and some minor, on March 22nd and 23rd from 7PM to 9PM at the Watertown Public Library in the Raya Stern Trustees Room. If you are interested in auditioning, please send an email to mrshawkingweb@gmail.com to reserve your slot. Walk-ins are welcome, but we’d love to know you’re coming.

We’re hoping to top what we accomplished with our debut performance, in terms of audience reach and representation of our play. So if you’d love to help out in any way, your assistance is greatly appreciated. Here’s to the next step in the telling of the Mrs. Hawking story!

Mrs. Hawking by Phoebe Roberts will be performed on Saturday, May 9th at 2PM and 6PM as part of the 2015 Watch City Steampunk Festival.

I'm really looking forward to  Mrs Hawking!
 Will you be needing any backstage assistance? Costume people? Set shufflers? Makeup?  I offer my services to you in that regard. My theatre experience is mainly musical, pit orchestra sort of thing. But I've been behind the scenes too, helping out with that which I mentioned.

The Watch City Steampunk Festival is doing a film series leading up to the day at the Waltham Public Library! From the official Festival website:

"The series includes four films: Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning Hugo, Barry Sonnenfeld’s Wild, Wild West starring Will Smith, Kevin Kline, and Salma Hayek, the 2004 animé film Steamboy with the voices of Anna Paquin, Patrick Stewart, and Alfred Molina, and last but not least, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea – the 1954 classic starring Kirk Douglas and James Mason, based on Jules Verne’s seminal 19th century novel considered by many to have created the science fiction literary genre.

The Waltham Public Library is located at 735 Main Street, Waltham, Massachusetts. The library has a small parking lot in the rear, but there is a lot of street parking in the area that is free after 5:00pm.

All films will be shown on Monday evenings in the Library’s Lecture Hall, located on the Ground Floor (lower level), and will begin at 6:30pm."

The schedule for the film festival can be found here.

To Miss Indigo Darling: Thank you so much, that's very cool of you!

We could use a makeup person, if you're still available. It would be great if you could meet sometime in the nearish future to talk and plan.

Send me an email at mrshawkingweb@gmail.com with your availability and we'll set something up!

Thank you again!
