Alright, I'll admit, it's been a long time since my last post. Too long, in fact. I've been working two jobs, fighting power outages, traveling to florida, swimming with dolphins, writing a play, watching/yelling at Legend of the Seeker, seeing MCMD occasionally between rotations, and rehearsing for a show, updating the blog has fallen by the wayside. For the loyal 3 of you that still check it out, thanks for hanging in there. Your patience shall be rewarded.

So, how cool is this....that show I said I was working on....it's Gypsy, and we open Friday, March 20th and run that Saturday night and Sunday matinee and Fri, Sat, Sunday matinee the next week.

Gypsy is based on the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the most famous burlesque performer. The story also features Gypsy's mother, Madam Rose, who is the epitome of the horrid show-biz mom. There is great music, fantastic characters, and wonderful costumes. And the really cool part...I get to play Gypsy!! It's a role that has light and dark (which as you all know from my blog name, I'm pretty into) she transforms from this shrinking violet, pushed into the background, self-concious girl into a bold, confident, witty, strong woman. And the really, really cool part is that I get to play opposite someone I admire so much, who has been my mentor in theater and a million other ways over the years. And even though she plays my mean mother in the show, and tells her daughter that she has "no talent," she has been such a wonderful support to me and I'm thrilled to be her "little lamb." So, if you want more info on getting tickets to the show, check out www.lcct.org

So, for now I'm hangin' out at the theater, working hard at the high school, hoping to pick up an extra day at the private school, and trying to find time with the husband. Oh, and that dolphin story I mentioned.....I'll save that for another day..... ;)
