Rent & Mary Poppins!
« on: Feb 07, 2016, 09:21 pm »
Two of the best musicals!


I've known that I would be stage managing Rent at Pit & Balcony in Saginaw, Michigan for four months or so - auditions are next week!  We used Google forms for our audition forms (which if you haven't used you should totally check out & if you have any questions about how amazing it is feel free to message me) and so far we have almost 20 responses! 

But I also just got asked to stage manage Mary Poppins for Stage M in Big Rapids, Michigan!  It's my first show with mostly strangers, so I'm really excited about the opportunities to meet and work with new people. 

Also, in April I'll be receiving Hamilton: The Revolution .  WHICH I'M LITERALLY THE MOST EXCITED FOR. 

This has been a shameless self promotion/fangirl moment. :)

Wayne State Grad here. Detroit girl, too. It's great to see that the arts are still surviving in the mitten!

Congrats on the Michigan work!

Thank you so much! I've gotten really lucky and have some really great directors that I really work well with.  It's definitely partly who you know, especially in the Great Lakes Bay Region.

There's some REALLY GOOD shows going on in the middle of the mitten this year.  Grand Rapids Actor Theatre just did Heathers, Owosso Community Players put on Legally Blonde at the same time we were doing Hairspray at Pit & Balcony.  But we're also doing shows like Eurydice and Noises Off.  It's a good mixture with amazing talent, and the shows are so much fun to be a part of!

Theatre is alive and well in the mitten, thank goodness!
