Adventures of a First Time Director: Thank You

DSC_0697b

Its been a little over a week since we closed our production of Miracle on 34th Street: The Play.  I can’t believe that Emily and I were so blessed to have such an amazing cast for our first time at this directing thing.  They all worked so hard to give us and everyone that was able to come see our show, the best show that they could possibly put on.

We are so proud of our cast and that all of their hard work was for not.  We were able to sell out all four of our shows with wait-list for all four shows.  It felt so good to know that people were wanting to see all the hard work everyone had put into the show and get a little Christmas spirit at the same time.

Even though it was hard to close the curtains on our production, it was also great to know that we were able to share so much with all the people who saw our show.  We are so grateful to everyone (cast, crew, family, and audience members) that made our show possible.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

Also I just wanted to say a special thank you to my hubby, without him, this process wouldn’t have been as easy.  He was always there for me throughout the processing by helping me with set building, listening to me, helping fix one of our moving platforms (PS If you ever build one of these make sure the platform was previously built with 2×4’s and not 1×4’s, the ones made out of 1×4’s don’t handle pressure well and might crack under it.), and much more.

This process was fun but yet stressful.  Would I do it all over; in a heart beat. Will I direct another show; possibly in the future but for now I’m going to enjoy hanging out with my hubby at nights and hopefully acting in another show here soon!
