Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie welcome back two artists to the show — one familiar face and one of our earliest guests. First, Ty Cooper returns. His first fiction film Mingle just showed last Saturday at The Paramount Theater, and he brings with him his assistant director Lk Schwendig from Boston and his actor and assistant director Precious Coleman from New York City. Lk and Precious talk about how Mingle started, what it was like working on the film, and what a good collaborative process looks like. Next, it’s local actor/director/singer Shelly Cole. She’s currently the music director for Piedmont Virginia Community College’s upcoming production of a 2017 musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s As You Like It. Shelly talks about how this show is a combination of old (Shakespeare) and new (modern music). She also talks about how director Brad Stoller is bringing in different groups in the community. (Shelly also sees how many times she can say, “Hootenanny” on the show.) It’s a big old artistic hootenanny here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
