Although looking forward to rehearsals this week, preview on Thursday, and opening night on Friday- I find myself incredibly stressed out and a little tired. This show is kicking my ass! Also, I've been spending at least 12 hours a day at the theatre most week days. I'm very lucky to be assisting with the summer children's program at The Naples Players, KidzAct, for some extra money. The kids are great and my co-workers are a dream, and the work is easy enough as far as day jobs go- acting, singing, and dancing. It sound perfect and it is, but it requires more energy than I'm used to putting out into the universe on a daily basis, but I'm learning so much and it's a great daily warm up for rehearsals at night. I'm also not alone in this endeavor. Both my director of "42nd Street" and the actress who plays Anytime Annie are also spending their days working KidzAct during the day and then doing the show at night. I look up to these ladies. Not only are they talented as hell, they are two of the nicest people I've ever worked with. Yay for nice AND talented people!
As I publish this first blog, I find myself already pressed for time. It's about time to hop in the shower and get out the door as I have to pick up laundry (dance belts don't wash themselves) and stop at the store before heading to the theatre. I'm looking forward to the week ahead and hope to post on here again here again very soon. Hopefully this blog will be one project that I start and actually finish.
Four days until opening night ;-)
