Perform, perform, perform!

I'm very excited because I have an audition coming up for A Little Night Music with Lyric Opera. I love that company. Great shows and people. I was asked to do Pirates of Penzance in April, so I'm looking forward to that! But, I have a shot at a role in the Sondheim show, too, so I figured, why not give it a shot?

Ibis is working again! Yay! The only downside, is that he works nights from 6pm to 2am. Yikes! I actually love having him home during the day, but I miss him at night. :( But, it's work, right? We have a lot of good prospects on the horizon and MK is doing great! I'm very excited for my business and I have lots to keep me busy.

Marli is going to be a WWE Diva for Halloween. Yeah, not my idea. Ibis thought it would be cute. He bought her a Women's Champion belt for her for Christmas when she was a month old and now he wants to dress her up. It's original, I'll give him that! She'll wear a black leotard with black pants and a sparkly headband and her belt. It'll be super cute. Mia is going to be Tinker Bell and Tristan will be Peter Pan. Cute! Reagan, who gets to spend Halloween with Grandma Mary, will be Minnie Mouse. Adorable! I'll definitely post pics after the fun night. :)

Anything Goes!

by Cole Porter
October 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11, 2009

"Anything Goes" is one of the most frequently requested repeat shows from our past by members of our audiences. One of the first elements of the re-organization of our mission twenty years ago was to set out to examine the “jazz age musicals of the American Musical Theater tradition and "Anything Goes" is at the top of the list of that type of show. Its score is packed with the best of the great Cole Porter’s signature wit and tunefulness, featuring “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “You’re the Top,” “Friendship,” “It’s Delovely” and “Anything Goes.” This show really made Ethel Merman a star and gave Victor Moore, as public enemy 13, a great personal triumph as well. David Brannen will return to direct for us, and he has the style and the dance choreography chops to make a memorable production. J. Sherwood Montgomery will return to play the role of Moonface, the comic character dressed as a clergyman. Come see Jordan Miller as Billy Crocker, Laura Bueno as Hope Harcourt and Debra Wanger as Reno Sweeney. Chris Thompson will join us once again in the role of conductor. The joy of returning to the musical comedy roots of Broadway in the 1930’s is a reminder to all of us that in the great depression people could only stay “holed up” so long. The time came when a night on the town, and a witty, naughty time needed to be had by all.
