So it's no secret that I am involved in community theater. Sometimes more involved then others mind you, but always, always I have some pinky grip on a season. For the longest time (the years I was in school) I was forced to only watch from the sidelines and limit my participation. Last year I was lucky enough to be pushed into a much needed stage appearance and gained not only a part of myself back but was introduced to the love of my life.
Belonging to a community theater is like having a really big, ever expanding extended family. I am lucky enough to have one that encompasses 3 theaters in the area and I wouldn't trade any of them. Which brings me to the point of this post. 10 years ago, we did a show...Cabaret. It was amazing. From the director, whom I had worked with since my first show at that theater to members of the cast, we bonded, kept in touch, and now there is a new cast. There are a few of us back for the ride but we have the opportunity to create the experience again with new members.
I know that it will be an experience that will bring back many memories while making new ones. Of all the shows that I have done (with the exception of the last one for obvious reasons) it has been the most special. So stay tuned, I'm sure this won't be my last post on the subject.
In a related but different topic, my boyfriend (who is amazingly talented and yes I'm biased but if he sucked I would say that too) and I are about to embark on a adventure in our relationship...no we're not getting married, but we are going to attempt to be in shows at the same time in different theaters...For most people going on vacation is the real test of a relationship, well for us it will be shows running at the same time. I'll keep you posted on that too.
Till next time luvs, Ciao
