Hello again, Midwest. It’s been awhile.
I’ve returned from my adventures with the Missoula Children’s Theatre. I did the math and I visited 20 states this summer – if you include our in-between travels – and worked with nearly 400 kids. (I can’t be sure, but I think I sang “Friday’s Seaside Resort” a minimum of 450 times.) What an adventure! It was a little sad to bid farewell to Robinson Crusoe and the little red truck that took us across the country, but it feels good to be home.
So what’s next for me? I’ve got some planning to do as these last days of summer wind down – more details to come soon. But in the meantime, I of course have a few projects to keep me busy:
First, I’m stepping into the role of Shelby in The Spitfire Grill in Beavercreek. I had my first rehearsal tonight and had a wonderful time. It’s a lovely show and a great cast! I’m very much looking forward to opening on Sept. 17th! More info available here.
Second, Alex Horton and I are up to our old tricks…that’s right, Fear Clinic is returning to the Dayton area very soon. We’re doing a reading as part of the Litehouse Series with our friends at Encore Theatre Company. No specific dates yet, but we know it’ll be after the first of the year. Details to come soon! Alex and I are also hard at work on a new show as well…let’s just say it’s a little different from Fear Clinic…
So I’ll have lots to work on as I settle back into Midwestern life. Here we go!
