A Conversation with Ira David Wood III!
Hey everyone, I’m Mike, she’s Sophie, Brenda’s on vacation, so she’s not here, and he’s Grogu, and we’re On the Road with Mickey! This is episode 141 for October 10, 2022, and today Sophie and I are absolutely thrilled to be joined by special guest Ira David Wood III! Our feature topic is A Conversation with Ira David Wood III! Grab your favorite beverage, sit back, and relax, and tell us in the comments below what you think! Here’s the rundown of what we talked about:
- Connect with us! Here’s how:
- Feature Topic: An Conversation with Ira David Wood III!
- What inspired your passion for theatre?
- Of all the performances you’ve done do you have a favorite?
- Tell us how you came up with the idea of doing A Christmas Carol.
- How many years have you been doing A Christmas Carol?
- What are the dates this year that it will be running?
- Is there anything from this year’s adaptation that you would like to share with us? Anything that stands out, that sort of thing?
- I’ve really enjoyed seeing how you and Ira swap off who plays Scrooge each year. Is there a process you go through to decide who performs when?
- You know, this is primarily a Disney themed podcast, so we would be remiss if we didn’t talk about the role Evan had in Frozen 2. Share with us if you can just how proud you are of your kids. I know that this podcast wouldn’t even be here if Sophie hadn’t agreed to join me in creating it.
- I think, and Sophie, correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the first play we saw that you were in was Br’er Rabbit, and that was one of my favorites. Tell us how that came about.
- Talk a bit, please, about The Lost Colony. That’s the one production that I think I know the least about, and didn’t you win a Tony Award for it?
- This Day in Disney History for October 10:
- 1813: The Birthday of Giuseppe Verdi, Opera Composer
- A little bit of Walt
- “Whatever you do, do it well.” – Walt Disney
- Coming Next Week: Five Things we are looking forward to on our upcoming December trip to Disney!
