Well, two and a half years have passed since the birth of That Theatre Life. What started out as a small seed/hobby has turned into a passion and love that has only grown since my time in New York and experiencing the bright lights of Broadway for the first time. When I think about what has happened in the past two and a half years, I am filled with thankfulness and awe at the opportunities I’ve had and the people I’ve met. But at the same time, I’m not settling here, as I know there is so much more in store for me and my page and it’s only onwards and upwards from here. No matter how hard or frustrating it is at times I know I want to be involved so much more.
Sure this all comes with challenges and at times definitely isn’t as easy as it all looks. But without a shadow of a doubt, I LOVE what I do and wouldn’t trade it for anything. Each show, experience and or event has been magical in their own way. I still pinch myself when I think about how truly lucky I’ve been and am.
The hardest but also most rewarding part though will always be the incredible, talented, genuine people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Supporting and forming some sort of relationship with them (yes I always end up seeing a show more than once) I’m one that can’t help but get attached way too easily. So you can imagine that quite literally they all become like friends and family to me. I always burst with pride seeing them and hate saying goodbye and not knowing when I’ll end up seeing any of them again. And I think I’ll feel this way forever.
Having said all that, I am humbled and truly thankful for the countless opportunities given to me to simply be there for them. I am a better person because of it and I only hope there will be more in the future.
By no means all of them but a selection of my growing theatre family
