Tonight, we open our third show in the Leavenworth Summer Theater season: The Drowsy Chaperone. This lesser known musical will leave you in stitches, grinning ear to ear (I promise). I am proud to be a part of this rare, wonderful, energized, and side-splitting musical. There are only nine performances, and I urge you not to miss it.
I’ve been in Leavenworth for almost three weeks and in rehearsal for all three shows for two weeks. Things are really coming together, and on top of learning the shows, I’m meeting some truly delightful people. It’s a pleasure and a blessing to get to spend an entire summer doing what I love with other people who love it, as well.
We’re about to head into tech for The Sound of Music (eep!). The amount of work that we, the cast and crew, have accomplished in such a short period of time is incredible. It’s going to be a lovely show, and I hope that you decide to make the small trek to see it.
With The Sound of Music opening soon, we’re shifting rehearsal focus to Fiddler on the Roof, which will open July 16th. I spent an hour this morning screeching away as Fruma Sarah, surrounded by a slew of Jewish Undead. I’m having far too much fun playing with different vocals, sounds, and movements with that character.
Though it’s been a few days since we’ve worked on it, PUT The Drowsy Chaperone ON YOUR CALENDAR. It’s going to be SUCH a fun/funny/fun-tastic show. Be there, or be there.
Last I heard, tickets were flying, so call the box office ASAP to reserve your seats: (509) 548-2000

I hear that tickets sell out (and there are no wait lists), so get your tickets while the getting’s good! It’s sure to be a wonderful summer.

I will spend this summer acting in Leavenworth Summer Theatre’s three musical productions: The Sound of Music (as Baroness Elsa Schrader), Fiddler on the Roof (as Fruma Sarah), and The Drowsy Chaperone (as Trix). This year marks the 20th anniversary of LST’s annual production of The Sound of Music.

Update (6/17/15): Unfortunately, the production company has removed the Sense & Sensibility trailers from YouTube, so I no longer have access to them.
The final trailer for Sense & Sensibility was released today!
