It has been a very tiring few days! I have been super busy and still can't believe that I am getting paid to play cowboys and Indians (in the simplest form) for the summer! I think I will have a summer that trumps most for me!:)
This show is already getting it deserved spot in my heart! It may be to early to say this, but I am going to say it: this is by far the most rewarding experience in every aspect! From acting to the family everything has been so rewarding! It has honestly rejuvenated me as an actor. I don't feel stuck or drawn down like I was at a said so place.
I feel that if you are anywhere near Chillichote this summer, make your way out to see Tecsumeh! It is a fantastic show that everyone can enjoy!
Moving on: recently - meaning last night- we add horses into act 1. This was a long processes but it went very smoothly and over all very fun. What is very interesting is that between one of the scenes I have a 25 second quick change then have 10 or less to run from Stage right to stage left. This will be a challenge but I am up to it!
Finally, I am apart of the tours this year and I have been giving the amazing opportunity to learn high falls! This means I get to fall from a height and fall!:) first we went from 12 feet from a roof, this was so thrilling that my first words when landing were: "Holy shit that is awesome!" It is such a mind game that if you can over power that then you will be able to do it. After that we moved to about a 30 foot fall from my chest, this was surprisingly easier. This time I had to stand up and simply fall while looking at my target, easy enough right?? I will get some pictures soon of what I will be falling off of to give you all a clear picture.
Finally here are some of the compound pictures:
This is cabin 12! This is my cabin for the summer. It is very simple but has a bed. That is all that counts.
This is a path that leads (eventually) to the main compound then to the stage!
Here is our dressing rooms, the Indians have their own dressing room and entrance.
And finally this is the main compound. Behind me (not in the picture) is the kitchen, this building holds both male and female dressing rooms, costume shop, and Landry rooms!
This is all for now! I will be sure and get some more photos soon, maybe some of the stage?!?
Love you all,
-make today a fantastic day, you never know who you will impact.
