This week started off with a huge treat--- Marissa (and her mom) came to visit!  She filled in for a day and also got to spend some time with us.  While she was here, we explored Toronto a bit and went to see the movie "Jack and Jill". It was a very funny movie.  We had dinner at Jack Astors and then played Phase 10  late into the night (big surprise, right?). She could only stay a couple days so she wouldn't miss too much school, but we still had a great time.  I was sad to see her leave but I know we'll see each other soon.
Miss Kim took us on a field trip one day. We went on a sightseeing bus ride.  It was VERY cold but we wore lots of clothes and had a blanket.  We got some ideas for future field trips after seeing the sights.
Our shows are continuing to go great.  The audiences really seem to enjoy it and there have been great crowds everyday.  We are continuing to collect donations for Broadway Cares/The Actors Fund of Canada and people have been VERY generous.  It's great to know so many people are so supportive.
At the end of the week, our company was able to go see "The Addams Family" tour.  We really liked it.  It was a lot of fun and they even made a  "Mary Poppins" reference which of course, our whole section laughed at and cheered for!  After the show, we took a backstage tour and met several of the actors. 
 I can't wait to see what week #3 in Toronto has to offer! Stay tuned....
