White sheets for snow, Christmas tree skirts for capes, a tent for a cave. The White Witch in a wedding dress, and a three-year-old Aslan in a lion suit.
I was reminiscing last week as I rewatched video recordings of some of the first plays I ever acted in.
I’m in the thick of multiple writing projects this week, so instead of doing a proper blogpost myself today, I thought I’d share with you some blogs (and books) that I read. Some of these I first encountered years ago, others within the last few months. But each of these websites, curricula, or writing craft […]
I am excited about this (in case you can’t already tell from the exclamation marks in the title).
Like in 2018, Kittywham Productions is traveling to three conventions this year, but unlike last year, I’ll be speaking at two of them this time!
When I first read The Lord of the Rings in junior high, Faramir was probably my favorite character. I admired his quiet faithfulness, humility, courage, and care for others. Moreover, I felt I could relate to him as a younger sibling with an extraordinary, high-achieving older sibling, especially since, at that time, I was battling feelings of insecurity and […]
A big thank you to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, and particularly to reviewer Susan Reed! Susan is a homeschooling mom and co-op leader who used our scripts Narrow Escape and Really Remarkable Romance with her daughters and students, and she reviewed us for The Old Schoolhouse’s database of resources for homeschoolers.

This week I turn 23, so I decided to take some time to trace the last year and come up with a list of various things I learned (or discovered, or experienced for the first time) while I was 22. I’ll admit, I stole this idea from another blogger (from whom I’ve been reading for…eight […]
Writer and teacher Jonathan Rogers shared a perceptive, persuasive short post on his blog at the close of 2018, encouraging his readers to approach the new year with a new mindset—one that prioritizes “process” over “results.” Though his post was chiefly aimed at writers, I think his insight applies to us all. I recommend his […]
With Christmas just around the corner, the season for Christmas dramas is nearing its end. It has been delightful to see pictures and video recordings from some of our Kittywham plays performed this season around the country, from Colorado to Florida! And better yet, some of the recordings are still available online, so they’re continuing […]
As promised, today I want to share a glimpse of the story and characters of The Nova Theater, our newest play (premiering tomorrow!!). Here’s a plot summary: “The cast and crew of the Nova Theater have one chance to prove their worth—but the odds are not in their favor. Director Andrew Jarvis is hounded by critics […]
