as you continue your life

and continue it you must

remember that beyond the chaos

love is spinning life anew

from now and past infinity

honor the dead
celebrate the living
root out the evil and shake off its withering touch

This is an informal site which served as a conference area for the staff of "Forum" during pre-production, and which is now also a photo and text record of the highly successful sold out show.

Director Randy Bowser's most recent Pentacle Theatre directing project previous to "Forum" was "HAiR," in which the musical's co-author, James Rado, and Michael Butler, the show's Broadway producer, took a personal interest.

This is Bowser's eighth directing project at The Pentacle Theatre in Salem, Oregon.

In 2002 he is directing METROPOLIS at The Pentacle.
