Telluride’s “Sound of Music” directors shout out about the upcoming production

37 Based on a sneak peak, Telluride Inside…and Out is prepared to go out on a limb: when the cast of the Telluride Repertory Theatre Company's production of "The Sound of Music" says its final "So long, Farewell, Auf Wiederzehn, Goodbye," the crowd at the Palm will be shouting for more. This is one boffo show, arguably one of the biggest and best in The Rep's 18-year history. When the inevitable occurs, much credit must go to its director, Cate Caplin, and her musical director, Dr. David Lingle, who lead a cast of 50 and a crew of 20.

Their resumes not only establish their street cred, they underscore their respective and complementary strengths.

Cate has produced directed, and choreographed over 100 productions in theaters and performance venues in Los Angeles and internationally at the Edinburgh Arts Festival in Scotland. She is a 34-time regional and international dance champion and her work in that arena has been seen on TV and film and at a variety of prestigious venues worldwide, including the White House, Kennedy Center, New York's Metropolitan Opera, Rockefeller Center and the Hollywood Bowl. Cate is also a freelance journalist and a coach for both dancers and actors.

David is a composer and the artistic director of the Telluride Choral Society. In addition to creating the popular Masterworks series, he works regularly with the school and The Rep on local productions. His past experience includes teaching vocal programs from grade school through college and conducting musical theater.
