Greetings from NYC!
I hope all is well (for the four of you still reading the TNCA Theatre Camp Blog)! I have had a mind-boggling year of unforgettable adventures! Camp closed and I got the crazy news that I was invited to join the cast of Titanic the Musical... the 100th Anniversary National and Canadian tour. I was whisked away to the Jersey Shore for 10 days of intensive rehearsal. (My track was insane! Solo and British Dialect PLUS tons of blocking and lyrics... yikes) We opened in Kansas and I loved every bit of tour. It helped that I LERRRVED my character and the beautiful show. We saw GORGEOUS sights, spent a LOT of time on a bus, and grew very close in the process.
Since then, I've moved to New York City! I lived here for five years during and after college, so it's been a blast revisiting everyone. I've seen brilliant shows (ahem... MATILDA!), eaten AMAZING food (Empanada Mama!!!) and have even been to a couple of TV tapings (yes, that's me in the audience of Anderson Live!!). I'm LOVE LOVE LOVING my life in the city. It's the perfect place for me now. It's nice to know opportunity can be found EVERYWHERE. I even auditioned for Aladdin on Broadway... coming next year. It was nice to know that a Broadway audition, really is just like any other audition. It was fun!!
I am totally stoked about the themes and shows at TrueNorth this summer. First, who isn't excited for JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH?? Love the book. Obsessed with the movie. Wish I could see the show. Second, Superhero Camp. Bam. That is going to be exciting, fun, adventurous, and hopefully meaningful. The perfect third chapter to the Treasure Hunt and Spy Camp!
TARZAN!! I am so pumped to hear the stories of this camp! There are so many opportunities for fierce in Tarzan. I hope everyone from last year comes back to grow, learn and experience, and everyone slightly interested joins this summer for a show and camp that will provide nothing but the stamp of approval from myself and every other TrueNorth family member. Gah... so jealous YOU GUYS get to be in Tarzan before ME!
I've learned a whole lot since my time at TrueNorth. I've truly understood the phrase "Live your best life". I am so thankful to have every breath on this Earth. I have learned to take in every moment and live each day to its potential. I am blessed to have every opportunity I live, and have treasured every new journey that has arisen. NO DAY BUT TODAY.
Let me know what you all have been up to this year! Feel free to e-mail, Facebook, or Pigeon Mail me something. I'm happy to hear all you've learned and grown since last summer, too!
