Wow. November has absolutely flown by! A month full of theatre, friends, and learning experiences. And today has been the cherry on top of an amazing month!
First: I can offically announce (FINALLY!) that I will be directing the OKTC March Break show, which is Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr! I’m SO EXCITED!!! After 2 1/2 years at OKTC, I’m finally directing a Disney show! I have a ton of great ideas and I’m looking forward to meeting my cast and starting rehearsals with them in January!
I’m also excited to announce this:
Everyone should come out and play! Fun for the whole family! Admission is free with a donation of a non-perishable food item, and there will be prizes for those in costume!
Tonight I also went to see a performance of Check Please, presented at Oakridge Secondary School. One of my OKTC students directed the show, and three others performed in it. The production was very well done — hilarious performances, great costumes, simple yet effective set, and wonderful attention to detail, including a menu-styled program and refreshments with Check Please labels. Bravo to the team for an excellent job! I was also introduced to their faculty advisor, who very generously gave me a bunch of scripts to read! (I thought I was just going to see a show, but I ended up with a bunch of goodies!) Thanks very much, Mr. Patterson! Thumbs up to Oakridge!
I’m also so thrilled to say that my November Blogging Bonanza has been very successful. I increased my traffic to the site, I wrote a number of well-received articles, and I learned a lot. I’ll be doing a full recap of what I learned and achieved in an upcoming post, but suffice to say that I’m very happy with this challenge and am looking forward to whatever comes next for this blog! I do know that I might not post EVERY day going forward (I’d like to focus on quality as well as quantity, of course) but I do want to continue posting on a regular basis and increasing the number of useful articles here, especially for The Young Actors Series, which I think has been my greatest success this month.
Here’s to a great November! May December be just as amazing — if not more so! 🙂
