Cast and crew get ready for Wykoff Fall Fest playBy Mary JergensonMonday, September 24, 2001

It is not unusual for in-laws to get in each others hair, which is happening quite literally with the co-directors of this years Wykoff Fall Fest play. Once again Rod Vorwerk and Dona Hebrink have set up their directors chairs, rolled up their sleeves and put their heads together in preparation for this years production. Let Your Hair Down, Rapunzel, is a quirky musical comedy adaptation of the well known fairy tale.

"We like doing fairy tales because they are family entertainment. Its fun for the children, but there is something for adults too," says Hebrink. She should know, this will be the fifth community play that she and brother-in-law Vorwerk have directed together. "We work well together as a team, Rod does the sets and blocking, and I do the details and costuming."

Vorwerk agrees, "I wouldnt think of putting together a performance without Dona." They began this partnership about ten years ago when their kids began doing plays in 4-H. Veterans of many high school and civic performances, the two thought it might be fun to try their hands at directing.

First they must choose a script. "We like to choose a script that makes us laugh out loud when we read it. We also look for one with a large cast and a variety of characters. We like to get a lot of people involved," says Hebrink who along with directing also plays the witch.

Its always a musical," Hebrink explains. "We arent all great singers, but we sing with enthusiasm and I think the audience appreciates that."

"We draw our cast from the Wykoff and Spring Valley area," says Vorwerk. "Its fun to get new people involved, they add to the excitement." There is no "formal" audition for the play, the two usually advertise to see who is interested and then begin recruiting.

Marcy Cappelle was recruited. " I have a soft spot for Dona, Id do anything for her and Im really having a good time. I hope she calls on me again!"

Cast newcomer Gretchen Butler was approached by Vorwerk. "I said yes because Ive always wanted to be in a musical. Im from Washington and I see this play as a way to meet new people and to have fun .....
