Summer is coming to an end...and it was quite a busy one! Lots of time with friends, concerts, bike riding, and recharging. There was also lots of audition prep, auditions, and ...disappointments. But after lots of hard work, I’m ending my summer on a high note! Three weeks ago I was offered the role of “Mimi” in A Comedy of Tenors at Actors Theatre of Indiana and last week we started rehearsals! I couldn’t be more thrilled to once again perform at one of my favorite theatres and to work with one of my favorite directors! It’s a fun show...and goodness know, I love a good farce!
The first week of rehearsals was pretty tiring, and much of the week was spent memorized and getting into the head of Miss “Mimi.” I always lack a bit of confidence at the start of rehearsals, and I need to work on ensuring that I start in a better headspace. All in all, a lot was accomplished in the first week! It has been such a joy watching everyone work and play! And Darrin Murrell, our director, is a pure genius!
Starting week two of rehearsals tomorrow, and we open next Friday! More to come!
