Maybe we'll try a Ragged Isle spaghetti western next!
Also, on the sound front, I am blessed with an over abundance of great music submitted from varied local musicians. Some directly associated with the series, and some local friends of the crew. Folks outside of production who have contributed are Todd Dadaleares, and Abram Grivois (vik44) and Richard DeCosta.
The soundtrack for this series will be quite the sonic experience. You'll have to wait for the season to end before the album will be released though because there is key surprise music that will be included. Songs that will play a key role later in the season. It will be a good thing to look forward to though. Worth the wait to be sure! In the meantime if you're curious about some of the music in our show, you might want to come check out our Ragged Isle Premiere Party on March 5th. Plenty of Ragged music will be experienced that night live and in person.

Spread the word! Our premiere party has had to have its date changed due to scheduling conflicts. We've been allowed to move it to the following Saturday, March 5th. Planning is still in the works on how the nights festivities will unfold but it's safe to say, there will be great music and lots of fun. We'll have a very special numbered limited edition poster print available at the event created by Ragged Isle writer and prop builder Jacob Lear. Very cool. T-shirts will be available for purchase as well. Lots of actors will be on hand to meet and shake a hand and take a picture with. Don't even try to get them to spill the Ragged Isle secret as they have already been sworn to secrecy! Although if you buy Sheriff Dalton a drink who knows what that man will say. In the weeks to come, we will reveal more information on our party. Again, let everyone know. Bring a friend. All proceeds will go towards producing our second season of Ragged Isle. I hope to see you there!

You read that right, on Saturday, February 26th we'll be having a special showing of the series pilot at the very spot that we shot an entire episode this summer. Geno's Rock Club in Portland is a good friend to our company The Entertainment Experiment and we thought it only fitting to show the first episode in the same place where we first showed our trailer to the public. I'm still working out all the details right now but expect to see live musical performances from some of the talented members of our cast and crew, some sort of giveaways and prizes and last but certainly not least, our very first episode. Also, I'm planning to put together a special sneak peak at the whole season that will only be shown at this event! Tell your friends. Bring your parents. This is an event not to be missed!

Blood Wedding, by Frederico Garcia Lorca
Directed by Tess Van Horn
A lively, committed theater ensemble (who brought Ubu Roi to SPACE last January) comes together again to present Lorca's Blood Wedding, a classic tragedy that is at turns violent, beautiful, strange, and funny. The play deals with the big desires and grudges that can bloom and fester in small towns. Sound familiar?
Original music written and performed by Hersey State, accompanied by members of Plains and Selbyville.
With Amanda Huotari, Peter Brown, Nicholas Schroeder, Pat Mew, Laura Chakravarty Box, Annie Larmon, Dena Riegel, Michael Dix Thomas, Ian Carlsen, Joe Bearor, Amanda Painter, Deirdre Fulton, Andrew Sawyer, and Claire Guyer.
Only three performances of this show:
January 13th at 7:30
January 14th at 8pm
January 15th at 8pm
Tickets only $10.
Reserve now with SPACE.

My name is Karen Dodd. I am on a journey that has taken me to Ragged Isle, a small windswept island far off the coast of Maine. This journey takes me back to writing and the heart of inspiration. One that I will continue over the next few weeks. The schedules have been made and the film has been shot. The editing continues as an adventure of rediscovery and reinvention. Soon you will join me on Ragged Isle where everyone's a suspect and no one is safe.

so about a year ago a few of us got together at Barry's and started a project. Not unusual for me – Barry and I have known each other for 30 years, and have been collaborating nearly as long. But this time was somehow different. We made progress immediately. Barry, Karen, Rick, Greg and I seemed to click – complimenting , expanding, and nurturing this idea.
fast forward to this past Sunday I met up with "the Dodds" and was able to see some rough cuts. Let me just say: Wow. I mean, I was unable to see the filming, so seeing it this close to final seemed unreal. I remember the conversations about this or that: "we can't do that, cause this happens over here", "we should have this person go here", "this is the part when this happens to them", and now? Now it's SOOO close.
I missed the one showing of the play we wrote in 5th grade. There's no way I am missing this!
