BAP 2013: Annie-Day 5, Wednesday

Today was a great day.

We worked our butts off this morning, really perfecting the show. Then, after lunch we got to the pool here on campus and swim. I'm not that great of a swimmer, but I love it never the less! We all had a lot of fun, I can guarantee you the younger campers will be sleeping sound tonight. :)

Katy, Magen, and I have been furiously working lines and songs. We must be off book tomorrow. Eek! I'm not sure why I am so nervous; this is my fifth show with BAP. We pull this off every single time. But the perfectionist, Type-A personality in me is determined to have this show down. We are allowed to call for lines tomorrow, but on Friday we don't even have that!

We also got to add our canine actors today. Dodger, the dog playing Sandy, is ADORABLE and perfect in every way. His owner is a choir teacher, so I'm slightly surprised his name isn't Sandy. We Dottie the Basset Hound and Princess the Dachshund playing mutts in the Hooverville scene. They are the precious fur babies of Ms. Alison Bridget Chambers, our Choreographer and Camp director. Princess has been in several of our shows including, Into the Woods, Once Upon a Mattress, Footloose, Pippin, Sound of Music, and now Annie. Rest assured, she will also be in Cinderella, come July!

Another awesome thing- Today a reporter from the Liberal Leader & Times came to due a piece on the show. (Here is the link to the article that ran!)

Well, tomorrow will be a mountain of a day.

I Deserve Safe Streets

Saturday was a weird day for me.

I was supposed to wake up early and hit the gym so I could get in my three miles for training. Instead, I managed to oversleep by TWO whole hours. Lately I've been having the hardest time waking up. It doesn't matter if I've been out for four hours or ten. It's a struggle.

But I went about my business and got ready for work. I wore my current favorite dress, a recent arrival at the store. I was feeling pretty cute, if I do say so myself. I felt like Elle Woods.

During my shift I had my fair share of weird/problematic customers, like the woman who handed me a receipt then said, "Oh whoops, that has blood on it." Like, real human blood you guys! A concerning amount of blood! I refused to complete the return. (Just kidding. I carried on as usual, just highly grossed out.) When I finally got off at 8, I hopped the L train to the gym. And when I got to Planet Fitness... it was closed. Why a gym would choose to be open 24/7 during …

Who said theatre isn't a contact sport?

So yesterday was a fun day! My cousin Nicklas got married to a wonderful girl named Sarah. I hadn't been to a wedding since his sister Keitha got married in 2006, and I didn't remember much, so all of my nuptial related knowledge came from the wedding scene in The Sound of Music (which I was in this summer). The entire family really enjoyed themselves.
And furthermore, this was my first time to get to go out with all the single ladies for the bouquet toss, and lo and behold...
 I sent this picture to Adrian. He's skiing so he hasn't received it yet. ;)

Anywho. The purpose of today's post is regarding the myth that theatre is a nice, safe past time. Wrong! Theatre is an art that imitates life, and that art sometimes turns a little painful. It's something that happens all the way from children's theatre to Broadway and West End. Afterall, Idina Menzel was absent from her closing weekend in 'Wicked' due to a cracked rib she sustained after an accident …

Big Changes!

Hello friends!

We're moving quickly into spring (even if NYC weather fails to acknowledge it) and man do I have some great news to share!

First, I posted last time about how due to cut hours I had taken on the second job at Blue Balloons. It's not something I had necessarily been super excited about; it meant having 0 days off and being even more exhausted than normal. But I was willing to hustle if that's what needed to happen. But then my manager approached me about moving into a management position at Loft. I had been a Sales Lead at my store in Texas and we had spoken several times during my time at the Flatiron store about moving back up, but there had never been a position open. But now, due to a series of moves within the company, one was! I gleefully told her I was still interested and she sat up an interview with our District Manager.

And I am now, officially, the new part-time Sales Lead at Loft in Flatiron! I am so excited for this new opportunity. Being a SL pu…
