What's been going on!
So here I sit on a Friday night in my apartment. Not out partying like my neighbors next door….although if I knew them I’d totally join, not gonna lie. While I miss my college days terribly, I’m glad to be here in Chicago spending my time working towards a career I always dreamed of.
So we open in six days!! We’ll be kicking off the Alcyone Theatre Festival on Thursday June 9th, with other fabulous shows to follow. I’m gonna do my absolute best to attend all of the other shows. Actually Goli Rahimi is one of the other ones! It’s called “Fa$hion: A Love Story,” and I encourage everyone to attend.
As for “The Invaders,” things are coming along great! We had fight choreographer Greg come in and meet with us earlier to go over some stage combat. Brought up some really interesting things that I’ve never thought of when it came to stage combat, as far as emotions and stuff go. Granted I don’t have much stage combat experience, but I found myself and the rest of the cast really enjoyed working with him.
While I have to commend the cast on their hard work, I have to pick out one in particular: Damariz Posadas. This girl is only thirteen years old and already has a great grasp on what “acting” is. She doesn’t try to do too much, just listens and responds…something I have trouble with far too often onstage.
I’ll try to update again before opening. But I hope to see everyone at the show!
