Tomorrow and Friday NIGHT Shows!!

Just a reminder to anyone that 'might' be in the Phoenix area. . . I have two performances this week one on Thursday Night (it's free) at 7:30pm-9:00pm. The Friday performance is from 10:pm-11:30pm it's not free! I'm excited about both performances.

Okay, so I have to tell you about an audition I recently went to and wasted my time. I thought it was an independent film. . . nope. I got there and apparently the 'Director' was going to put on an improvised (he called it 'free acting') LIVE PLAY. Not just that, but there was no actual "auditioning" process. It was a 9-11 Twin Towers Disaster re-enactment in a sense. I honestly wasn't sure what to think of it. I had to decline when he told us he wanted to perform it NEXT WEEKEND! I was pretty sure it was going to be choas, and since the "performance" nights would interfere with my legit Improvisation classes at Jesterz, I nicely declined and left the 'meeting' and drove home. I drove 45 miles for it. . . 2.5 hours I will never get back, but it will always be something I remember; The CRAZIEST idea for a live theater production. :) With NO PAY (he just felt like no one should make money off 9-11) I guess peoples time and talents aren't worth anything. He was planning on collecting money at the show and sell recordings of it. . . .and donating the money. I think making donations are good, but when I have done 'charity' stuff, there is just some things you plan on paying for. It actually got worse when the 'Director' started asking the cast to volunteer to run the 'business end' of the production. Talk about dumping everything on your actors. It would have been cool at least with some kind of script. I have found that when the Director doesn't actually audition talent, then he's not professional or the production isn't going to be very good. It was Bizzare.

I wouldn't go to all that work and get no compensation. Plus it's not film experience, so I am staying away from live theater for now. (With the exception of Jesterz)

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
