5 Life Lessons from the Theatre

Um… remember me?

Yes, I admit it. I haven”t been here much lately, but I am so pleased to say that everything has been great! You already know how much I love social media, but lately I have been spending my evenings with one of my other great loves… the theatre! More specifically, I have been in rehearsal for SHREK THE MUSICAL with the Bridgeport Theatre Company where I will be playing the role of the Big Bad Wolf.

Becoming the Big Bad Wolf

It”s so much fun to play a fairytale character! And just like a good fairy tale, working in the theatre is full of valuable life lessons. Here are my favorites:

  • Great results come from hard work. I think mobile casino it”s safe to say that most people love a good shortcut. But if you want to achieve excellence, it does not come without hard work and dedication.
  • Organization is everything. You may have heard the quote “Failing to plan is planning to fail” and it”s true! Whether you are getting ready for opening night or to launch a big project, be sure that you have a plan in place to reach your goals.
  • Don”t be afraid to put yourself out there. It doesn”t necessarily have to be on the stage, but you will never get anywhere in life without taking some risks.
  • Do what you love. Whether it is professionally or personally, find a way to do something that you enjoy and care about. Life is too short. So enjoy it!
  • Spend quality time with your friends. OK. So this one is a shameless plug. What can I say? The show opens on Friday, and I would love to see you all there! Gather your friends, pack a picnic, and get your tickets now for performances from April 25 through May 11! I hope to see you there!

It’s a WEDDING This Weekend!

That’s right… a WEDDING!

Oh calm down. It’s not MY wedding. But it IS a wedding that you are all invited to, and one that you won’t want to miss!

Let me backtrack and say that I owe you all an explanation for where I’ve been lately. A few months ago, I got involved with the Bridgeport Theatre Company when I joined the team for their production of the hit musical, THE WEDDING SINGER.  I initially joined the team as Associate Producer, and along the way I also became a part of the cast in the ensemble with a couple of small character roles. I have to tell you that I am having the time of my life! It’s been nearly 20 years since I have performed on stage, and every night with this cast performing a high-energy show set in the 80’s is a dream come true!

Any of you who have been involved with theater will know that there is a lot that has to happen to take a show from rehearsals to performance, so yeah… that’s where I’ve been.

Anyhow – this weekend is our closing weekend, and I’d LOVE to see you there in the audience! Only 4 performances are left – Friday, June 7th at 8:00PM, Saturday, June 8th at 5:00PM & 8:30PM, and Sunday, June 9th at 2:00PM.

It’s a lot of fun… you can bring your own food, wine, beer, etc. and set up a picnic at your table while enjoying the show. And if you come to the Saturday evening performance, be sure to dress in your best 80’s look as there will be an audience costume contest!

The audiences have loved this show, so you won’t want to miss it! Get your tickets now by clicking HERE!
