So I’m all settled in in Omaha, and have started my teaching artist internship with the Omaha Theater Company at the Rose Theater. So far my fellow interns and I have been pretty busy. Right now I’m rehearsing for The Super Adventures of Nutrition Man and Dr. Exercise, a touring show that will go to local schools so kiddos can get their learnin’ on. I’m playing a slew of colorful characters and having so much fun laughing along with my castmates. I am also an understudy in the Rose’s season opener – Diary of a Worm, a Spider, and a Fly – which means I need to brush up on my rap skills. That’s right. Rap skills. It’s pretty exciting.
This week I start teaching classes with real live children! I’m so grateful to be embarking on this latest adventure. It’s going to be a wonderful time.
