After a long two day bus trip, we arrived in Worcester, MA just in time to get to the theatre for our evening show! Guess who surprised me during intermission? MY DAD! He also brought Yocco, our mini dachshund. I missed them both so much. I haven't seen Yocco for over 4 months so I was so happy to see her. She licked me like crazy! I was wondering if she forgot about me, but when I saw her I knew she was happy to see me too. The hotel and theatre were both so kind to let her stay with us. I took her for a lot of walks and played with her every chance I got. I gave her a new toy that I bought her a while back and she loved it. It's a pink stuffed dachshund! Thanks, Dad, for such a great surprise.
I also had a lot of fun playing baseball with the crew guys and my dad at the theatre in between the 2 shows on Saturday and Sunday. It was really hot outside, but we were having too much fun to notice.
On Monday, it was hard to say goodbye to my dad and Yocco. At least I'll see them soon, in just two short weeks! For now, it's back on the bus to Elmira, New York....
Thanks for following along while I blog about my amazing experiences on stage and in front of the camera. My mom and I started this blog to record my fantastic memories while on the road with Disney's Beauty and the Beast. I played "Chip", the teacup for almost an entire year. I got to visit and perform in 42 cities and I had an amazing time! My other favorite roles and shows have been Fulton Theatre's 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' (Jeremy Potts), Walnut Street Theatre's 'Oliver', Civic Theatre of Allentown's 'A Christmas Carol' (Tiny Tim), 'Seussical Jr.' (JoJo), 'Abe Lincoln in Illinois' (Jimmy Gale/Tad Lincoln), 'High School Musical' (B-Boy), 'Cabaret' (Boy Soprano Soloist), 'Parade', and 'Willy Wonka Jr.'(Oompa Loompa).
I have so many amazing people in my life that love me and support my talents like my TERRIFIC family, my AWESOME friends, and my FANTASTIC teachers. I can't thank you enough for all of your support!
I'd like to give special thanks to those who have helped me grow and improve on what I love to do...especially William Sanders, Pam Rice, Roni Gerry, Shawn Salevsky, Lois Waelchli, Bob Marks, Jen Rudin, and my agents, David and Dina, at Generation TV!
