I’m in Shuswap Theatre’s production of Mary Poppins. I’m Miss Lark and (in an amusing bit of type-casting) The Bird Woman. Our curtain rises in 19 days, but we’re already sold out. It’s been brilliant watching it all come together. Now the run-throughs begin: we’re counting down!
You auditioned just for a Lark? The role is obviously for the Birds. 🙂
(There has to be SOMEONE to make such obvious wisecracks.)
Congratulations! Wish I could see the show.
My third role is a statue that undoubtedly will wear bird poop. Far too much type-casting! 😉
At least you aren’t expected to fly — using an umbrella!
No, no. It’s all about the KITES! 😉
This bird and flying thing really got over the top!
It takes a lot of courage to get up on stage- at least for me it would.
I’ve been on the stage since I was 4. I don’t have significant stage fright or anything. Just the rush as you step. Mind you, singing a solo is slightly more terrifying than choral singing, dancing, or acting. 🙂
