What have I been up to?
Well in the non-acting world I took a break to Stage Manage two shows. I stage managed "A Kind of Love Story" by Jenelle Riley at Sacred Fools Theater. Then I went directly into stage managing the remount of "The Magic Bullet Theory" at the Matrix Theater. I posted a little bit about Love Story but went straight into Magic Bullet that I barely had time to breathe.. so that equaled no updates for awhile.
Then I had performed in several episodes of "Skit Slayers" written by Padraic Duffy and performed in the late night program at Sacred Fools Theater called Serial Killers. I had a great time doing that and loved being on stage with Paul Plunkett riding a unicycle. Also during this time I was in two episodes of a musical titled "Everybody's Got the Plague" written by Zachary Bernstein.
In "Skit Slayers" I was a narrator telling of a man's sadness by being stood up and his joy of winning a contest to be in a big budget porn. In "Everybody's Got the Plague" I was the new girl in town and wasn't exactly starting off on the right foot with the popular girls.
Then came "New Years Eve Fast and Loose" at Sacred Fools Theater where I got to sing a song written in 24 hours. According to the people in the audience I was absolutely adorable boppin' around in my sarong and bikini top grooving to the song. The song was another Zachary Bernstein original entitled "Fierce Competition for the Flying Squirrel" Odd title? sure, but not if you know that there are certain words that need to end up in the song. All makes sense when you know that. It was a lot of fun!
So that was the recap of the last few months of 2012.. on to 2013!
So far I've been cast in a world premier play called "Low Tech" written by Jeff Folschinsky. Rehearsals just started this past Monday and I'm really excited to be in this piece. I was a little worried for the first 20 minutes of the rehearsal when I realized I was the only new person in the group but that quickly changed to exhilaration. It is a great comfort to work with people you know and respect but this is a great chance to get to know new people and perhaps learn more about myself and what I want out of a theatrical experience.
I have also been doing a bit more singing in the past few weeks. I recorded two demos for a full length version of "Everybody's Got the Plague" and last night I spent the evening rehearsing at Bedrock studios for a new musical by Peter Gilabert which will have reading this coming Monday.
Wow, seems like a lot! Now I just need to get a photo shoot and a voice over gig in there and I will be super happy.
Speaking of voice over. I did narration for a short film by Nora Novak called "Audion Tour" while back and I am so very pleased to announce that it just won Grand Junction Film Festival's "Best Short Film"
Typing all of this up makes me feel pretty darn good about myself.
