Change it is a'commin'

Well well.  The summer is drawing to a close.  I am putting understudies on for the actors who negotiated to leave before the season is over.  I have had two rehearsals this week and one more tomorrow.  My understudies are doing great! They will be on all next week.  I can't believe the Randall closes tomorrow!  Where did the summer go?

I hope you all had a chance to see shows if you were in Southern Utah.  Even if you aren't, it is worth the trip!

I have just over one more week.  Three more performances of Merchant and five more of Much Ado. I am telling you, I can't believe how fast its gone!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my crews, casts, designers, and fellow stage managers for making this a fantastic summer. The administration rocks, the box office is awesome... I am filled with love for the Utah Shakespearean Festival.

I also have some news....

This will be my final season at the Festival.  I have been here 10 years.  I worked on 13 seasons with over 30 shows!  I can't believe my time here has come to an end.

My new adventure begins on September 10 when I start working as the On Call Assistant Stage Manager for Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity in Las Vegas. This is a permanent position, which has been my dream for many years.  Although I enjoyed my gypsy lifestyle, I'm ready to settle down and live in the same city as my husband.

This blog will need to change a bit.  I'll still talk about my adventures, but I think I need to reevaluate the exact content.

I hope everyone's life is going well.  I'll update you more when I start training for Cirque.
