It is time to wish you yet another happy Monday as we creep toward the middle of June!
Can you believe it?!
We are literally just a week away from the official start of Summer and just a few weeks away from July 4th, which I was always told symbolizes the halfway mark of Summer.
Like, is that for REAL?!
2021 is FLYING by.
Anyway, this week’s post will be short and sweet.
Cross my heart.
It’s hard to believe that a year ago, we were still living in the confusion and isolation of quarantine.
And during that quarantine, I lost something in my life that I have always been passionate about.
And this week, that all changes.
LIVE theater is back at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center and I couldn’t be more EXCITED.
EXCITED is in all caps.
And what makes it even more special is that the production that is starting off the first, full official LIVE show with an audience since 2020 is Boys in the Band which ties in perfectly for pride month.
I’m having the humble opportunity stage managing this production whilst working with some of the most incredibly talented individuals as both a cast and production crew.
And these boys that are performing their hearts out with these characters of this beautifully written piece are just so incredible.
What makes them even more incredible and amazing is the fact that they have put up with my sassy queen attitude for the past month and a half during the rehearsal process.
“Learn your lines, bitches! Set your props! Get your life together.”
These are actual quotes from my mouth that these actors have heard me say.
Mr. Sunshine runs a tight ship with some rumbles of thunder, so WATCH OUT.
I promise it is all out of love though.
And I wouldn’t want it any other way. These boys are just so good.
All caps again.
The theater is a rewarding and fulfilling outlet and passion of mine and the fact that it is starting to come back to a pre-pandemic normalcy for the most is emotional to say the least.
These boys are ready to make you laugh, cry, and tug at every single heart string in your soul.
And every night, without fail, they have done just that.
It doesn’t matter that I’ve seen it 1006839 times.
So, please make your way to Ephrata Performing Arts Center for this production.
Celebrate the arts.
Celebrate the return of LIVE theater.
I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Boys in the Band runs June 17th-26th. Please make sure to check out ephrataperformingartscenter.com for more information about tickets and show times.
Sprinkle sunshine always,
