I watched the Tony Awards tonight. It's something I've watched since 6th or 7th grade when I first got into theatre. There were a few years I skipped because I didn't care about the shows. But now, I enjoy watching because most of the musicals I grew up with are being revived. And one that I know forward and backward - Les Miserables - is being made into a movie this Christmas! I've waited for that for a very long time!
Whenever I watch the Awards, my heart always longs for that dream of standing backstage, wearing a headset, calling out the cues to the lighting and scenery folks. That was my career path during college. It's where I was headed. That's how I ended up at Disneyland. It's funny where life leads you. Now, I'm a mom and a wife. I still do theatre, but it's on a local level. And we don't even have a community theatre!
I think that's why I write. I still get the escape. I still get to call the shots. It's just a different venue. So thank you, Theatre Career, for sending me on a path I never thought about. And you still hold a large part of my heart.
