Some of you may be aware that I have been working on contacting Alumni. Why? To bring us all together somehow, of course. It would be awesome to find everyone, but right now I have 500 names and I am trying to put email addresses to them. I am more-or-less, through the “a”s. Baby steps. I am hoping to publish a “newsletter” by July 15th and make first contact on June 29th. Those are the goals!
So, there is a lot that has changed in this last year. Covid-19, BLM, faculty changes, staff changes….to name a few. There is a lot that will need to be “re-built.” I am going to start with re-doing my website and my Canvas pages for my classes. My hope is that there will be a lot more useful content for students and my friends to see what’s happening…
I am also working on contacting more alumni and connecting as many of them as possible. I think this is essential and helpful to our graduates and I hopefully everyone will agree with that!
Jen and I got engaged here and I loved the city when we were here and it hasn’t lost its charm. Happy to be here for these two weeks, but sure do miss my family.
We are in the middle of opening night! The first of 16 shows I’m doing in Portland. Yee -haw!!
Not a sign of a good clamp!!
Three days left here. It has been lovely. Weather was pretty much 60ish every day.
Shows went well. I head home Sunday night and then I’m home for two weeks!
One of the awesome things about the Seattle Paramount is that the seating can disappear and the floor become somewhat flat. This makes for an easier load-in. Literally we hang the balcony rail with a Genie Lift…!! This is a pic of the seats half-way restored!
The E-shop, Small Lab and our hallway got re-surfaced this summer!
It was a rough load in. But we did it. Lots of little issues. Most resolved. We have an artistic license box issue. An annoying box. There is a lot to do preparing for STL fox!
Yesterday, I found a broken scroller (on of the ones bought over the summer) placed with all the working scrollers in the shop. This has solidified a belief that has been building. Our students need to fix more stuff. You need confidence, a sense of responsibility and practice. I know wee can do better, so we will.
