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.
I AM SO EXCITED!!!!
