I have been out and about working on the acting thing every day since my last post, which is always a good thing. Even if I am not currently reaching concrete milestones, I am still keeping busy, which is motivation in and of itself. At least for me.
On Sunday we had a rehearsal for Becket Players, complete with cast photos. Opening night is coming soon and the run throughs keep getting better. I now have my costumes figured out, which is always exciting, and am looking forward to figuring out my hair situation. The show spans decades, so you can look forward to some interesting looks 😉
Monday, I finally got back into class with Suzanna. With the play, I wasn’t able to go to my usual Tuesday class, since we were supposed to have rehearsals, but when Suzanna offered me a spot on Mondays, it was truly an offer I couldn’t refuse. My scene is about pre-wedding cold feet. Kind of. It is definitely interesting to try and show years of history in a couple minutes of conversation, but stepping into someone else’s shoes is one of my favorite parts 😉 And obviously, I loved meeting everyone in the Monday group!
Tuesday, after spending the afternoon at McGill, I went out for my birthday supper with my family. While discussing our jobs, I mentioned I don’t get a bonus, I just get hired, to which my brother’s girlfriend responded that my bonus is getting to work next to amazing actors. She might have used different words, and I am really looking forward to working with these actors instead of just standing beside them, but every day on set is a good day, and I really do love being a part of it all, in any capacity.
Yesterday, I got to catch up with Carolyne and go out for my birthday, including a movie, menchies and some thoughtful book suggestions. I have truly been spoilt this year for my birthday, and I appreciate every bit of it 🙂
For anyone following or participating in the Camp Nanowrimo challenge, we are now more than halfway through, and I am well on my way to finishing a second, shorter book. There is something about escaping into an imaginary world of my own creation that is just…amazing 🙂
