Well friends, I’m exhausted. I did stick to my promise of not consuming alcohol…that was until St. Paddy’s evening and I didn’t have to pay for my drinks. I was invited to go see burlesque at one of the local bars and I was in love! Not only because of the burlesque show, but due to the fact that they were a dive entertainment bar, complete with a pole. And I may be trying out for the burlesque troupe. 😊
Anyway, I want to give a quick update on my progress so far:
• April 7-9th I will be performing Titanic: Tragedy and Trial in Delaware City for the Reedy Point Players, I am double-cast and not doing anything else but performing so it should be a solid performance.
•I had to pass on roller derby assessments because of my show schedule being back to back and on the same nights as practice. It couldn’t be done. (Holy Over-Commitment Batman!)
•Speaking of shows and why my schedule is full; I got cast in Orange Is The New Musical at Bootless Stageworks. This is my second performance this year, with my first being Body and Sold.
(He had it comin’!!! Oh wait…wrong musical.)
•My school advisor is trying to work their voodoo magic to get me accepted into school, this means I have to update my resume and submit to the program directors to show I’m serious about my education.
•I’m also attending a casting call for a fit modeling job in town. For those that don’t know what “fit modeling” is: you are invited to a fashion lab to try on clothes for fashion brands and give feedback about how well they fit. The brand wants to know how well the garment fits and feels before they mass produce it, and put it out on the market. It’s good money if you can get it. The last time I did it, I ended up getting a free pair of jeans and socks out of the deal. (I don’t think that’s common, so please don’t expect that if you do get the job.)
•I’m making progress, slowly but surely in my combat class. I got a fight partner today, so we will be going over scenes to work on soon.
•I’m still trying to pick up some more background jobs, especially since it is pilot season and there are new shows coming out. No such luck right now.
That’s all I got for now, I will keep you posted on anything new.
