It’s a Start

Welcome to my very first blog entry.  I thought I would do this to keep myself motivated and creatively inspired.  And, at the suggestion of some recent cast mates, I will share some tips and tricks that make my life easier and hopefully yours as well.

Last month I had the pleasure of doing another show with the Sweeter Theater CompanyFracturing by Deanna Neil is a modern adaptation of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People.  It was a great experience with a wonderful cast of talented people (we got a lovely review) and it was a green production.  Besides learning about hydraulic fracturing and the inherent dangers of same, (for more information about “fracking” check out the documentary GASLAND),  I discovered a great summer reliever.  (Hint:  here comes the first tip.)

The Sweeter girls gave everyone in the cast a wide-mouthed water bottle that you can put ice in and I put mine into a neoprene sleeve that I found on and found that I could keep the bottle of water cold for several hours.  I gave my cast mates and director the sleeves on opening night and during that incredible heat wave, they were a big hit!

During the run, I would come in every night with a new thing or product I was excited about which prompted my dressing room mate, Colleen Wallnau, to say “you should blog about these great tips!”  So, Colleen, I took your advice.  I hope this tip keeps some of you cool for the rest of the summer.

I just found out today that the short film I shot two summers ago (Showers of Happiness) has just been submitted to Sundance and a private screening for cast and crew is planned for October.  When it’s available to the public, I’ll shout it from the rooftops.  Stay tuned.
