#147 Kelly Doran, Centrum Technical Director

(First airdate: December 3, 2019) HERDING CATS ON MULTIPLE STAGES. Our Town host Maryanne McNellis interviews Kelly Doran, Centrum’s Technical Director. Kelly’s work is largely behind the scenes. But she’s the one who carefully knits together all the elements of a show –  lighting, sound, staging, and a million other details. It’s a constant blur: she orchestrates jazz, classical, blues, fiddle tunes and all of the other events that make Centrum a key cultural magnet on the Olympic Peninsula. Centrum’s season is mainly in the summer. So this winter Kelly took on the challenge of directing Port Townsend High School’s rendition of the classic play Our Town. Sound  familiar? Both the play and this show are called Our Town and both feature small American towns. The similarities end there but strong characters dominate both.
