“Chicago” closed back at the beginning of the month. Great cast and crew. Good folks who worked hard, but we still had a lot of fun. I really did enjoy working with each and every one of them. Getting to watch the dancers warm-up before the show with “All That Jazz,” singing “Mr. Cellophane” in my oversized shoes, and watching Lindsey and Danielle do the “Hot Honey Rag” from the wings were some of my favorite moments. Love this cast photo (above). And I wont be gone from SMT for long. Rehearsals for “The Drowsy Chaperone” start next week.
Christmas came and went with its usual flurry of activity, gatherings and gifts. Spent some nice time with my Mom and the Poseys over the holiday weekend. The Christmas Eve service at Lake Washington United Methodist Church was great as always. There was a youngster there who kept shouting “Yay” at the end of every hymn and prayer reading. It made me smile. I really do love this time of year, but it’s the best when all is said and done and you can just enjoy the time with family and friends. I spent some great holiday time with friends Tammi and Detta. Here’s a picture of their tree.
Been busy the last few weeks directing a new play for Breeders Theater. It’s called “Casting Call” and my cast is doing great work. It’s been a little tough with holiday schedules, chilly rehearsal space and all, but things are falling into place and we should be more than ready for our Jan. 14th opening.
Coming soon…The New Year (and my 50th birthday)!
