So I am almost all packed and ready to go. Ok, not really but I have all my clothes in a big pile next to the suitcase and I have another pile of toiletries in my bedroom ready to be bagged. I leave in 2 days! Shit! Where did the time go?
True, I was only home for 11 weeks but they sure went by in a hurry! Seems like just yesterday it was Christmas or something. Actually, Christmas seems like a lifetime ago but it feels rehearsal for As You Like It just started yesterday. When in reality the show closed last Sunday.
Oi what a ride we had on AYLI! A million close calls and yet no understudies went on. I dont’ know how that is possible. I feel like I held that show together by sheer will. Lucky me to have such a good cast and crew!
So next up is Summit with Gary Musick Company! I am starting to think the like me there! They are bringing me in a week early (hence my jet plane on Sunday) to help out. I will be in Nashvegas for 2 weeks and then on the Summit for 2 weeks. I am going to Puerto Rico! WOOt!!!!!!!!
Here is my schedule.
San Juan, Puerto Rico, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, Roseau, Dominica, St. George’S, Grenada, Kralendijk, Bonaire, Oranjestad, Aruba, San Juan, Puerto Rico
THEN REPEAT (I am doing 2 cruises back to back – that’s how we get the shows up.)
The ONLY place I have been to is Aruba and it’s sentimental to me because that was my first stop on my first cruise with GMC! Hooray for travel! I am so blessed to have a job that lets me see the world and PAYS me for it. I am telling you, I think about how lucky I am to have this gig ALL THE TIME. (Thanks, MJ for having enough confidence in me to hire me with no experience in the Production Management world!!!)
Some of my pals from my first ship will be out with me.
A couple of the singers from the Millennium will be there too, Freddy and Matt. Can’t wait to see them!!!!!!
I just got off the phone with Babs – – she is going to be one of the costumers and Erin is my Choreographer! I am surrounded by people that I love! YEAH BABY!
Ok I should run off. Time to get the dog to the groomer. He is getting his velvet pants on – – for those of you who know what means!!!! (It means we are giving him a lion cut – – shaving his hind end!!!!) – – Yes I will post a photo soon!
Anyway, I love and miss all of you – – oh – – I got my Utah offer the other day. I’ll blog about that on The Porch later.
