Random post! I totally forgot to mention that in February I competed in stage management at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Los Angeles, California. I didn't win, but I had a dang good time! I took a week off of student teaching and went with about 20 other people from BYU and some of our professors. We took off in some 12-passanger vans and made it to LA by 6pm. I drove one of the vans all the way from Vegas to LA without stopping once! I was very proud. Here are some of the highlighs from the trip:
This was the GORGEOUS view of California Plaza from our hotel room at the Omni Hotel (all paid for by BYU!):
The first morning we went to Disneyland! It was my first time! I must say...I'm still loyal to Disney World, but it was still a blast:
Going to Disneyland with these crazy people was a HOOT!
Tower of Terror scared the CRAP out of me...as usual...
These are all of the Production Stage Manager books lined up to be scrutinized! Mine is the one with the BYU circle on the bottom...
Our hotel was right down the street from the 5-cent diner, which was on the TV show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. They make homemade pop-tarts and ding-dongs...as seen here!
I loved being at the festival so I could help out with the first show BYU has brought to the festival in 8 years, Stage Door!
KCACTF was fantastic, and although we didn't walk away with many awards (dang politics), we still had a great time, and I felt so lucky to get to spend time with such talented, fun people. And thanks of course to Daniel...the ever faithful and patient husband who is always there when I get home from my adventures. He is amazing...and got me my Disneyland ticket for Valentines day!
