Theatre's where it gets hard-core when the weather gets bad....

(Aka, I got the notice that unless the Theatre God for the space can't get there, we're on for our stuff tonight)

and I will likely say it again.

Theatre is good for me.

It restores me, even when I have actors late (or not showing up), and people coming to me with problems.

That which was insurmountable is not so much so now.

And now, having done all my tasks that I'm going to do for the evening as FASS SM, I go to bed.

I have really warm sheep slippers.

At home.

Where the floor isn't freezing.

My office, on the other hand, is below ground, and thin carpet over concrete.

My feet are freezing.

And I'm off to rehearsal.

KWLT & FASS presents the 2nd Annual

2007 FREE THEATRE WORKSHOP SERIES - Production

November 21 from 7pm to 10pm

At the University of Waterloo: Math and Computing Building, Room 2017

Admission is FREE so sign up early to ensure your spot. ad@kwlt.org or (519) 886-0660

November 21 – PRODUCING
with yours truly

Production is one of the unsung heroes of a show. Do it well and the show makes money. Do it poorly and even the best rehearsed cast faces small audiences. Some simple scheduling and ideas can make the difference between the two. I'll provide some insight & suggestions based on years of production experience with KWLT.

KWLT & FASS are hosting a series of theatre workshops.

I'm tempted to run a directing workshop. How to find shows. How to find staff and what to look for in them. Preparation stuff. How to do auditions. Casting process. Rehearsals. How to deal with fragile egos.

I'm only tempted thus far, because, as many of you have seen, I suck at teaching.

I think I'm going to lay this down on paper some more and see what happens.

Thank you to all the folks who came out and made FASS so memorable for me. This time, I'm producing KWLT's next Main Stage production. I'm a publicity tramp, and I'm hoping you all can come see the show!

Official Stuff )

If you're interested in tickets, I can also arrange for them - pay me in advance and I can get you in at discount prices!


(And while you're waiting for R&G, check out the February One Acts, and all the other things KWLT has on the go at www.kwlt.org)

Yup. It's the Monday after FASS.

All energy is gone. I should really go get something to eat, but that would involve going out in that mess. And dealing with the brightness (sunshine plus snow plus sore eyes from the damned red makeup makes for unhappy Nita eyes).

I hope yoga makes me feel human again tonight...

At least I seem to be getting better at typing with these damned things - though my typo rate has gone way up.

And entertainingly enough, apparently red sharpie *does* chip. It's just way easier to fix.....

I really have no IDEA how anyone functions with "long nails", be they fake or real.

Dude.

I'm seriously considering taking these off till Wednesday night.

I'm much girlier. And feel somewhat crippled.

My nails are longer. Red. Really red.

How do women do this and do *anything* for themselves?

The things I do for theatre..
the_nita: usual shot when I'm directing - since I'm *not* looking at actors, I must be working on the script. (Princess)
Dude. I'm not good at this.

Nor am I good at painting them.

My plan was to gradually put the nails on while I made phone calls at work (need them for FASS).

I think I need to make another trip out to get the remover so I can unstick my *one* thumb (all I've done thus far) and try again.

Those of you who've done this - how do you *not* stick your skin to the underside of the nail (where your natural nail "free edge" is)?

I'm *so* not a girly-girl....

to using sleep aids when I'm coughing all night long to get me unconscious is that I'm still dopey at 9:35 the next morning. Having real trouble staying awake today.

I'm thinking I need to bring the pills with me to rehearsal and take them then, as opposed to when I get home from them.

Really enjoying the FASS rehearsals this year. Combination of watching [livejournal.com profile] robsgoatfarm enjoying himself directing, and getting to just sit with [livejournal.com profile] latrell and make comments sotto voce through rehearsals - we're supposed to after all, we are the deities giggling over the foibles of mankind. I'm getting also to do some work with Josh, the current president. He's fun to act with - been a while since I've done FASS where I got to work off & with someone who was coming up with bits of business, as opposed to being there to hold up and "fix it if they get in trouble" other actors who's strengths, bluntly, lay elsewhere. I'm enjoying it.

Speaking of which - if you are coming to see FASS this year, either let me know so I can get tickets for you, or contact the Humanities Theatre Box Office at 519 888-4908. If you order through the Box Office, tell them you're coming to see Anita Kilgour (there's a little contest the producer is running to see who can sell the most tickets).

Tickets:

  • General Admission: $8

  • Thursday Night Special: $6



Hope to see you there!

You, my son, are an evil, devious, ear-worming bastage and I shall make you pay.

I love Monty Python.

If I ever hear that song again, I may have to hurt someone.

It's like university all over again.

My online marketing course? Yah - 15% of my grade happens the week of FASS. Whee...

So I'm in FASS again.

And this time, I'm the devil.

We're contemplating schtick that basically means I'm changing costumes to suit the 7 deadly sins. Given that I'm going to have minimal time to change, and I'm supposed to be "lounging on a couch, watching 'tv' (aka, the mortals), that limits things slightly.

Soooo..

What's your idea of what the devil would look like?
