Drama Kids still Drama Kidding!
Not going to get those possible fill in gig dates with Cap Rep, they're trying not to use over hire (I understand saving money, but dang). They did say the will use me next season, so ... WOOT WOOT for that!!!
Me thinks that is all for now ... It's Been Real November 2011

Here we go.
Other than the actual rehearsal ... reading of the script, listing all the movement sections - so I can get on "choreographing" them - and my mind is teaming with things to do ... this is exciting!!! ;o)
Und zat is all for now!

Right...well Happy Thanksgiving all (one of you who read this blog), hope you had a good one.
Tomorrow is the first rehearsal (read thru) of "Circus Olympus"!
Setting up a time to sit in on a class for the Proctors Media Works Program, which is the potential job op in my sights right now - wish me luck on that one!!!
And for the moment that's all.
I can't believe it's almost December ... how did that happen??? ~M

Cap Rep has asked me if I'm available to do one or two different (super short term) fill in SM gigs. A weekend cover - where I'd run the show that's up - and a week long cover - where I would either run the show that's up OR run the first week of rehearsals for the next show that'll be going up.
I'm free for both time frames - my DK position still going on, but with notice my boss is usual good and ok with helping out!
We'll see what happens.

~"La Cage aux Folles" at Proctors
~"She Stoops to Concur" at SUNY Oneonta
~"Wicked" on Broadway
~"Man of La Mancha" at Capital Rep
And even better, for all four shows I paid a grand total of five bucks! Saaaa-weet!
So, what show's next ... ??? Actually, I'm not sure, but I hope something, and soon! :o)
Perhaps I'll have a real update tomorrow. :o)

And other than that, NO theatre stuff today!
Yesterday I went into NYC with Drama Kids to see "Wicked"! It was fun to see it with Drama Kids actually, the little girl and her mom who were sitting next to me (and while she's not in any of my week classes, she is a Drama Kid I've had in the Winter/Spring Camps) was so adorable while watching it. Every time she figured something out she got more and more excited!!!
I can't wait to see a show with Paige and Taryn and experience them like that! :o)
Anyhoo, it's still an amazing show! It re-inspired me to be "great"! So now, I've gotta get on with that! Hahahaha...

Today I actually submitted my resume for something. The Education Coordinator at Cap Rep asked me to sent it to her, as she knows I teach, to see if I might be a good fit for Cap Rep's summer program. We shall see what happens. :)
I love it when work breeds work!

Yesterday's info ... officially turned in the "Pure Poe" prompt book at the theatre, along with the keys ... hope to get hired back. Both Maggie (the Artistic Director of the theatre and the Director of the show) and the Education Director, Laura, said that I did a great job! And Laura asked me to send her my teaching artist resume for their summer teaching positions, so ... we'll see what happens. And as I turned in my keys to the Production Manager (who does the hiring) I said something like, Peace Out and or Hire Me Again! He smirked ... only time will tell.
I'll be seeing "Man of La Mancha" there in a week, and there's the Company Christmas Party on Dec. 19th, so that's fun and exciting to look forward too!
And I had my Tuesday night Drama Kids yesterday, all classes went well! :) One of the classes I hadn't been to this year, but was a class I did last year so many of the kiddos knew me already, chimed in with a rather enthusiastic 'MISS MAGGIEEEEE" when they saw me! :)
AND I've gotten the GCS MS play "going" ... the official announcement was made on Monday in school, and tomorrow I will "post" the information on auditions and production weekend! So now onto show research ... and other good stuffs in prep!
And that was yesterday!
PS...Welcome November (stay away cold, ha ha ha)!
