This past while has been busy. Not only have I been regularly going out to auditions, but just a few weeks ago I attended Theatre Ontario’s smART Money series of workshops on Producing. In addition to my own experience of self-producing, it was a great refresher with some helpful new tips and tools on topics like organizing budgets, project management, fundraising, and writing proposals. Just today I’m finishing up an application to the SummerWorks festival, so hopefully that’ll give me the opportunity to put this new information to use.
In other exciting news, I’ve recently finished a first draft of a new play. While I’ve had a number of ideas and scores of notes tucked away, this is my first new work in a while that I’ve felt strongly enough about to bring to the draft stage. I’ve been working on it off and on since last November and am incredibly happy to have finished a first draft. I’ll be continuing to develop and refine it and will be sure to post on any significant updates.
