42nd Street: Behind the Scenes.

This past summer taught me so much!  I feel like I could write a hundred posts about all the lessons I learned.  But before I go into all the details, I wanted to catch you guys up on the comings and goings of theatre life.  Of how fun and off beat all the people I get to spend my days with are.  The weird and wonderful things we get up to. So here goes!

We did a Gangnam Style video and it got like a ridiculous amount of hits.  The guy who put the video together got invited to the Gangnam guys concert in Toronto.  It was crazy!!  The Artistic Director of the festival is in it as well as Peter Mansbridge!! Crazy!IMG_1769

Just your average intermission with crazy showgirls!IMG_1741

Thanks for stopping by!

Photos from 42nd Street

Hello all!

I wanted to show you all some of the promotional photos from Stratford Shakespeare Festival’s production of 42nd Street.  These are ones that I happened to be front and centre in, which makes my mom happy.  There were like 1000 of them in total.  We had to go through them all and sign off on the ones we were ok with being made public.

Just stating the obvious, that these photos are not my property.  They are meant for promotional use for the Stratford Festival.

There you have it!  A quick peak at what I was up to all summer!  I’ll show some behind the scenes photos soon too.

What do you think?  Do you think you’d have liked the show?  Do you like musicals?

Away We Go.

Let me draw your attention to a little post I wrote a while back… here it is.  I posted about my “Virtual Dream Board” on September 16th 2011.  The first thing I wrote about was “Performing at the Stratford Festival”.  I am happy to announce…

To put it simply, I have been dreaming about this moment since I was a child.  I have been going to see shows at Stratford my whole life because I grew up really close.  This is the biggest, most amazing thing that’s ever happened to me.  And it’s happening now.  That’s a crazy feeling.  My brain is exploding with happiness, anxiety, excitement, and fear of the unknown.  We start Friday.  I am thrilled, and terrified.  And my heart hurts because I had to move across the country and leave Mr. Best Things to cook for himself (hope he doesn’t starve..).  I miss him so much. It’s going to be a crazy hard next couple of months, but when your dreams are coming true in front of you, you grab them, right?  I want to write about this experience so I never forget what it felt like when this moment occurred.  Thank you for reading my ramblings and letting me express my excitement. This dream is 10 years in the making.

What’s your biggest, scariest dream?  The one that you need to write a virtual dream board about?!
