theatre challenge - day 1

so even though i haven't posted in ages, i wanted to share a facebook challenge i was tagged in:

day 1 of the theatre challenge - beginnings

so the first part is going to cover beginnings in my theatre experience. 
getting started at new theatres can be scary and challenging, but each of these beginnings opened the door to years of incredible theatre & friends.

- music man - 
my very first show at CAIA where I simultaneously played a female barbershop quartet member, the sheriff, and a pick-a-little lady.

- robin hood - 
my first show at JOY, my mother's first directing gig, my first costuming gig, and, actually, the first show at JOY ever. 
this was the beginning of quite a few things, and playing Lady Merle was my first, and probably last, time as the villain of a show.

- scrooge - 
my first show at the Artisan. this show began such a monumental journey...I couldn't even begin to describe the impact it has had. 
in this show I played Mary ("the minister's cat is a boring cat"), and even went on as the Isabel understudy twice.

ironic shirts.

sometimes when you're in a thrift store searching for shirts that can fit in an 80s/grecian vibe for a show of epic proportions (XANADU) find gems you'd never before discover.

it starts with one of you lifting a shirt in a triumphant victory dance which includes a gaspy squeal.

followed by the other, standing at the other end of the rack, performing the same motion while holding up an equally thrilling and completely perfect match for said shirt.

it concludes by our wearing them and pretending they are ironic.

that shoe thing that happens.

we've all been there, right?
we all have our own story.
the moment of sheer horror when suddenly looking down at your feet.
you knew something didn't feel right.
things seemed off balance.

only...did your story happen on the way to the optometrist?

i guess i'm a star.

i'm definitely way behind on my postings this year. 
however...i thought it imperative to share this video from my current show.
apparently i make some fairly ridiculous faces.

trust falls.

have you ever gone in for a trust fall only to discover that perhaps you trust a bit TOO much...?

viva la revolution (or whatever).

throwback thursday to when the french revolution was going down at the artisan theatre.
scarlet pimpernel is a pretty fabulous musical (for those of you who don't know).
also i have talented friends...but that's a given when you work at a theatre.
