back to the theatre  
i'm thinking that i might get in contact with some theatre companies around here, and find out about working on some of their upcoming productions - backstage somehow, or crew or something similar. i'd like to get back into directing again; i just miss the excitement of the theatre. when i came home from queensland this year, i knew in my heart that i could never turn that love into a career. i was never made for full-time theatre - i don't have the heart or the strength to deal with the instability of it all on a constant day-to-day basis. but i miss the plays i worked on, i miss the anticipation of creating something new, i miss the thrill of achievement during performance time. i like the stability of the job i have at the moment, and although insurance is not the most exciting thing to be working in, i feel relatively secure, and i feel like i have a career future. but still, i need something more, i need an outlet. this is a far cry to where i was almost a year ago - dancing every day, working on that children's production, studying performing arts every day.

i need to find a happy medium. i need some place where it's okay to be creative, where it's okay to dream and make those dreams come alive. the theatre always was that place for me. even if it is only just part-time now.

you should start your own theatre company !
get somebody to sponsor you, or something.. I don't really know how it works, but still!!

in the mean time, take a couple of friends into the city and do some invisible theatre. always good :)

hmm, theatre is a demanding career, to say the least.
is there such a thing as local theatre groups where you are? in my town, there is a little (but very talented!) group who put on shows every month or so, and anyone can audition...

i'm sure whatever career you get into you will be happy. because as we've once discussed everything happens for a reason and though things may be hard in the beginnings, they will eventually get better. &you will be happy. :)
i wish you all the luck you need . i hope you find some companies that will have positions available. :)

i'm so sorry i haven't been commenting lately. i finally moved into the new house and we've just settled in with a phone line &everything. :)
