I wish I had remembered sooner that I drafted this blog post before August.. especially, before the end of August. I should have had a strategy built for this season prior to auditioning, casting, and planning for All Shook Up. But(!), I do have a plan and I am excited to share it with you today.
- All Shook Up, ensemble from July 2018-September 2018
Essentially work for ASU ends after opening weekend. There’s minor refresher work to be done between performing weekends but I am freed up and eligible to start work on AD’ing for Charlie Brown! This is most exciting for me because it’s entrance into a new theatre as a production staff member and it’s another opportunity to learn from a diverse group of individuals in a new role.
- A Charlie Brown Christmas, Assistant Director from September 2018-December 2018
The Director and I had an initial conversation during Curtains! in regards to rehearsal schedules and responsibilities shared/split between the two of us. I am excited to see what we develop today in regards to this family favorite. I have some time to really focus and build new directorial skills in this production because the planning for Dracula has been done by myself and the director a few months ago (we are both crazy early planners).
- Dracula, Make up designer from September 2018-January 2019
I am really looking forward to just (and I hate saying that word) having fun with this production. I’m not thrilled with all of the staff she picked, but I am overlooking it to enjoy building out new make up skills and enjoying the show. It’ll be creepy, kooky and a bit crazy weird–the perfect lead in to buckling down in February for Forum and wrapping up any last minute things I need to do to be successful for the direct.
- A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Director from February 2019-June 2019
I got nothing for this at this point. I don’t know where I’ll end up in my planning after Dracula. Stay tuned, ’til next time.
