lay of the land


we're in crunch time now, also known as "tech", also known as the reason i've dropped out of blogland.   besides the normal insanity of working from noon till midnight, combining the already rehearsed elements of singing, acting, dancing & staging with costumes, sound, makeup, hair and lights, there's flying.  lots of flying.  of small children.  and deities.  and pirate ships and trees and water and

I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN IT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

i've had an aha! moment with instagram's instant gratification prowess (the fancy filtered shot above was taken by @danceism, a woman of jaw dropping talent), great for when you're bazonkers busy and on a wee phone during breaks.  (or for when you're playing a deity and not in rehearsal as much as everyone else and alone in your hotel room with fabric tunnel vision.)  once we open, i'll share some seriously awesome action shots with you.  holy cow, wait till you see what i get to fly in... truly a geek out moment for a sewasaurus rex.  for those of you who have asked, the show is called (also appropriately)  fly, at the stunning dallas theater center.  i mean, this was the view from the break area in the rehearsal room.  THE BREAK AREA.  

(in other news, haven't heard hide nor hair from the winner of nicole's gorgeous book.  beth!!  where you at?   obviously i understand things can get hectic, so i'm giving you one more week to holler at me.  but... if i don't hear from you by sunday june 30, i'll pick a new random winner from the comments already left on the giveaway.  i'm a deity, so i get to drop rules like that, dontcha know.)

  13. Beautiful shot! I can't say that I know what it is like to be in professional theatre during tech week, but having just finished the high school musical I directed, I SOOO understand dropping out of the blogosphere. Break a leg, Oona!
