Well, quiet time is definitely over.
Theatre Prom came and went last week. Lots of deserving people won Ivey Awards (including Tyler Michaels, with whom I performed in Flanagan's Wake a few years back, and Bonnie and Michael, my old bosses at the Illusion Theater). My roommate Neal Beckman got to perform the closing number "Sit Down (You're Rocking the Boat)" with his Guys and Dolls cast from Bloomington Civic Theatre. VitaMN has a really great slideshow of some of the highlights here. And everyone looked especially gorgeous this year, too, if I may say so myself.
I've had one rehearsal for Commedia. I recently got cast and have now started rehearsals for Hauptmann with Candid Theater, which opens on Halloween. The show is about the Lindbergh baby kidnapping case, and I am playing the wife of the man who went on trial for the crime which he (most likely) did not commit. Working with Candid for the first time, and aside from Matt Saxe, who I worked with on Crazyface this summer, all of the actors are new to me as well! (Note: Playwright Seraphina Nova just won an Ivey Award for her script for her original play "Dogwood," which was produced by Candid Theater earlier this year, so it's exciting to start working with them a week after that win...good energy to take going into rehearsals for a very serious show.)
Aaaaaand....the article I wrote for Paid Actor came out. Get your copy here and you can find out why I think that the only real competition an actor faces is him or herself.
And a big change is coming soon as well...I'll give you a hint:
Well, I'm off to Wisconsin in the morning to visit the family. Until next time!
