What's New at the Zoo

Has it already been two weeks A MONTH since my last post? Yikes. This is what happens when you have a summer internship at Saint Michael's Playhouse. We were told before we arrived that each day would feel like a week, each week a month, and so on. I wasn't sure how believable this would be, but boy have I been surprised. 

You saw my last post boasting about my endeavors for Fiddler on the Roof and we're in the thick of Tuesdays with Morrie. Compared to the huge cast Fiddler had, Morrie is a quiet change with only two actors. We've been building our third set for Rumors (opening July 17 and running through the 27th) behind the set for Morrie due to its small size. It's a welcome arrangement since the set for Rumors is two intricate stories. 

Since I last wrote that we've started Rumors - we're in our second week run now. It's sad that it will be over soon since we have changeover in just a few days. It's truly beginning to feel like the end is near. I'll be ready for a mini-break (I'll have a week at home before heading back to SMC for training week and orientation) but I wish that I could just bottle this summer and keep it forever. 

I've learned so much from all the great people here at the Playhouse and I now have a better idea of my career aspirations. It's also crazy to think that this time next year I'll hopefully be employed in the real world DOUBLE YIKES. 

I'll keep you posted on my future endeavors as they happen and as I begin my final year here at Saint Mike's. What a long, strange trip it's been! (That 70's Show anyone?)

Sending my love to Florida where my family is in Disney (without me!),
