31 Days In A Musical Theatre Life – An Introduction {Day 1}

Today’s Broadway Soundtrack:

Its so hard to believe its already OCTOBER and time for another installment of #31Days!

This will be my fourth year participating in The Nester’s beautiful community of bloggers.  I’ve wanted to write about this topic since day one, but truth be told, I just didn’t have the nerve.

I’m grateful to say, thanks to some Divine nudging, current back to back show performances, and the whispers of my Spirit, I’ve decided to share with you the in’s and outs of my musical theatre life–both the fun and quirk of my inner musical theatre nerd, and the outlet of creativity that are a lifelong passion, and one of the things I feel I was put on the Earth to do.

What, you may ask, will my series include?

I’m hoping to share some of my personal stories of being a musical theatre performer–from tours across the country and the globe–to nitty gritty regional and community theatre jaunts.  I’ll be sharing  interviews with fellow musical theatre performers–including friends, musical theatre colleagues and perhaps a mentor or two.  They may be a guest post as well from a fellow actor and writing friend, whose ten times funnier in one sentence than I could probably be in this whole series.

Because I’m passionate about curating creative resources, I’ll also be sharing some favorite books for creatives, as well as musical theatre playlists, along with a giveaway, and much more!

If you saw the embedded link above, you’ll see I’m hoping to share at least one musical theatre tune (or more–via Spotify–follow me here— or Grooveshark) with each post.

When it comes to videos, it gets tricky, and for good reason. Because of the Broadway Union –Equity–there are strict rules in place for posting videos of Equity productions.  For this reason, I won’t be able to share video of recent productions I’ve been a part of–but I may be able to share other videos that are already public with permission.  

I’m also hoping to do a backstage vlog of the current production I’m doing this month.  I’ll iron out all of the details soon–please stay tuned!

If there’s a specific angle you’d like to read about this month, let me know! Please leave me a comment, or drop me an email.  

I’m so grateful you’re reading along with me.  This beautiful writing project has grown leaps and bounds in 4 years–you have 1000’s of blogs to read this month–I want to make it worth your while to read this series.

Join me here tomorrow for some musical theatre goodness!

  1. This is my first year as a 31 Dayer, and I was excited to see the title of your blog. My year has been full of new things and new people, some of which are a NEW family of friends – THEATER friends! One of them is a director of regional theater here in mid-Michigan. I’ll be sharing your blog link with her – I think she’ll find fun and excitement there as well. Looking forward to the remaining 30 days…

    1. Thanks! I hope your friend enjoys the series! There’s some wonderful theatre in Michigan–are they at any way affiliated with the University of Michigan? They have one of the best musical theatre study programs in the country! Let me know if you’d like to read about a specific aspect of musical theatre, and thanks so much for reading!

    1. Yay–I’m so glad you like it! (And yay for fellow musical theatre nerd/kindred spirits!! 🙂 ) Ooh, and good luck on your Whole30! I need to get more serious, and do a food reset as well! 🙂

  2. This will be so fun! It’s so different from anything I do, so I’m excited to get a glimpse “behind the curtain” — ha ha!

    1. I’m so glad you like the idea Sarah! I’m realizing there’s so much to write about in this topic–I almost don’t know where to start! So glad you’ll be reading along!

    1. I’m so glad you like it! I’ve been wanting to write about it for so long, but didn’t have the nerve. I thought it was the perfect time to start. Let me know if you’d like to read anything particular about musical theatre. Are you doing a 31 Days series friend? Blessings!
