Lately I've been so busy, I've forgotten to do things that I need to do to take care of myself. Like buy groceries and get enough sleep. I have been able to increase the frequency and intensity of my workouts though, so that's a step in the right direction! And as you can see, Crouton and I have been getting on splendidly too!
Right now I'm working on a lot of things. I'm currently learning my music for my as cast roles in A Year With Frog And Toad, which is RuBarb Production's Christmas Show this year! It plays from December 2nd-6th, if any of you happen to be out Moose Jaw way at that time.
I'm also embarking on my first ever job as a stage manager and first ever job as an assistant director, for the same show! Les Belles Soeurs is a classic play that I am very excited to be working on with my friends and colleagues at La Troupe du Jour. The show runs from March 2nd-6th, but because it's a community show and we have to rehearse around everyone's work schedules we start rehearsals in just a few weeks!
I've also taken on more social media responsibilities and am now the Social Media Manager for the Saskatchewan Association of Theatre professionals. We have our second annual AGM on Monday in Regina and so there's a lot going on that I'm trying to jump into!
My largest project currently is Macbeth, which I am working on as part of my Artistic Associate role with Embrace Theatre. This time around I am the Front of House manager, which is a little daunting but super fun so far! There are more details available at embracetheatre.ca and tickets are available at ontheboards.ca
I'm also very excited to announce that I am producing a video series for Staple Productions that is filming in the next few weeks and should be ready for posting in December! I've been rehearsing hard for the past few days, as well as beginning production work on my cabaret that is happening in January!
As always, I've been working box office at On The Boards, front of house at Persephone and at Calories!
If you have any free time in the next few weeks, I strongly encourage you to see Life, Death and the Blues at Persephone Theatre. One of the more important pieces of theatre that has been presented in Saskatoon in the past little while, in my opinion.
I'm now going to go and rehearse for an audition. As multiple people have said to me, "I'll sleep when I'm dead!"
