anti-zef asked: AHHH I saw you messaged my friend! Im so excited for T fest! I cant wait!
As someone who went to high school in a state that doesn’t do anything like Theatrefest, I’m still mystified by it, but it’s a good time and you guys seem to get a lot out of it. (And I’m getting real paid this time, so I ain’t mad)
Anyone else gonna be there?
My Facebook news feed is full of people heading back to Urbana.
And I’m not leaving for another week and a half.
I just want to get into shenanigans with my friends and watch television and go for walks and generally mess around.
You know, until school starts. And then in rehearsals/meetings/tech/performances for forever. With some classes thrown in.
my advisor/Chair of stage management/Chair of Level21 (she’s a lot of things) just sent out revised production assignments for next year.
and AHH I’m stage managing!
I’ll be the stage manager for this really interesting play “No Child…”. I don’t know much about it, but I know we’re adapting it from a one-woman show to an ensemble piece (oh look, another show with actors playing multiple characters. Right up my alley). It’s going to tour locally after it performs at our space, but I’m not going to be the touring stage manager (which is a-ok with me).
The downsides are I think I have to come back earlier from winter break, which means I might not be able to work as much of TheatreFest as I had planned too. The tech/performance week is also the same week as the first week of rehearsal for Spring Awakening, but it’s most likely going to be music rehearsals, since that’s how that music director works. I’m fine with that.
I’m still ASMing Dracula in October, but they took me off of February Dance, since it conflicts.
Ahh I’m so excited.
I’m not a Glee fan.
But I am SO PROUD of Charlie.
He deserves all the good coming to him.
UIUC Theatre Department represent!
Chuck is the sweetest, goofiest, most genuine kid.
I’ll be watching for him, because damn I miss hanging out with him.
I saw MANDY PATINKIN today.
He was in my theatre, walking down the hall and I saw him!
I didn’t get to go to his concert because I had work, but I’m SO GLAD I was able to just see him!
oh my god I used to listen to him all the time.
He’s the best.
I love this place.
