I was lucky enough to work with the same great group of people on this year’s 10×10 for the 2011 Sacramento International Film Festival (Last year we made the short Runners). Stipulations included incorporating yellow paint into the film, as well as featuring an image of a meerkat. That last part is my favorite. I feel like that’s what won us the Director’s Choice award.
Phew! Talk about non-stop. This 13-week tour is coming to a close. We have two more weeks, and I’m on the hunt for a job to save up some money. Why? Not because it’s smart to save, but because I got into PCPA’s Acting Conservatory! I was accepted a couple months ago after auditioning and attending callbacks in Santa Maria, CA. It’s a 2-year intensive actor training program. I’m really excited about it, but I need to make that dough to afford to live down there! The job hunt begins.
Closing out the school tour season with Fantasy Festival XXV, directed by Jerry Montoya and Tony Poston. It’s the culmination of B Street Theatre’s student playwriting contest. Students sent in ideas for plays or full-out scripts, and four or five were chosen to be adapted by B Street company members. Pretty cool, huh? Rehearsals started this week, and so far it’s been a blast. We’re out on the road March 14th through June 10th–whew, longest tour yet! BRING IT ON.
I’m back on tour with B Street Theatre again, this time in The Seven Wonders of the World, directed by Michael Stevenson. We’re having an insane amount of fun, espcially with all the roaring I get to do as a colosseum-fighting lion. The tour runs til February 25th. Sparking wonder, one kid at a time.
