The second Blog topic that we were told to start writing about today is "Describe in the last 1-2 weeks of your life as it pertains to the topic of entry #1"
Well for the last two weeks I have been in working on the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. In this production I play the role of Joseph. This show is the telling of the biblical story of Joseph and his eleven brothers who sell him into slavery and how Joseph's gift to to be able to explain dreams, puts him at the top of society.
I have tons of fun on stage in this show because there is a chorus of children, in which i constantly get to interact with! And it is impossible for the huge amount of excitement and energy that the kids have not to transfer to me! I just get the vibe and do my best because of them! It is going be a fantastic show! We open in two weeks!

This is my very first blog.
For English Class we were told to blog about an aspect of my life so here it goes.
One of the biggest aspects of my life is that I have done Musical Theatre all of my life. I have been in more than 50 of them in lots of different roles from supporting characters to the leads of a show. It has always interested me since a was a kid because I was a show off and I knew that I needed to perform in front of a large crowd. As soon as I started doing these Musicals I started to take vocal lessons to help give my self the advantage of being able to Sing and read music as much as possible at very young age.

Being in a Musical Theatre group is more than just showing up and practice, you have to also build that sets and help with costumes. Everything that goes on there is a total group effort.
I enjoy the time that I get to spend with the people who I have grown up with at the Theatre as long as new friends I have met along the way. Without a doubt this is one of the most important aspects of my life!
