I know it’s been too long. I’ve just been hanging out here at home – well, running around like a madman really. It’s been so great to be home but also crazy busy. Yikes. Seriously. But I love being busy. Lots going on. Some I can’t talk about yet. But I may have some news about a couple of cool things very soon so stay tuned. I’ll hopefully have a bit of news in the next 3-4 weeks.
As it is, I’ve got 5 more week until I go to Calgary. Looking forward to that. I think it’s going to be a blast. Seriously. From what I know of the cast, they’re all fantastic. I love Dean Paul Gibson, who’s the director. He was the Man In Chair in The Drowsy Chaperone in Winnipeg. Plus, I love working in Calgary. I really do. It’s always a good time. Well, that’s not true. The first time I worked there, it was kind of a nightmare. But we won’t talk about that. I’ll just say every time I’ve worked at Theatre Calgary (where I’ll be doing Spelling Bee), it’s been a joy and a pleasure. Oh for those of you who don’t know or don’t remember, the show I’m doing is called The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. It’s a really sweet, funny, touching musical about a spelling bee and all of the joy, anxiety, disappointment and life lessons learned. I’m playing the grief councellor, Mitch Mahoney. He’s a recent ex-con whose community service is to be the grief councellor – which basically consists of handing out juice boxes and giving a pat on the back. hahaha yes, it’s hilarious.
Anyway, keep your eyes peeled to the blog.
