Bard on the Beach

Last week we checked out A Midsummer Night's Dream at Bard on the Beach.
It's their 25th season! We bought popcorn to celebrate.
And it was SUCH a wonderful production of the Dream, they always do such high quality stuff at Bard!

Museum at TUTS

I was back at TUTS this past week, watching Shrek. I will be there a few times over the next few weeks, volunteering in their museum tent.
TUTS has a long and colourful history, I believe this is their 68th year!
The museum has awesome pictures from years gone by, including one where the Queen visited.
There are postcards from all their past seasons - it really is a wonderful company.
Backstage at Malkin Bowl, the company signs the wall when they appear or help in a show. One year, we did Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I was in the pit choir and my hubbie (then boyfriend) was Reuben, the eldest brother. We all signed a ceiling tile, which was removed during a round of backstage renovations. So it now hangs in the museum. There are a lot of names on this tile, from so many talented performers and people that we are still lucky to call friends. 

So if you're in Stanley Park seeing Shrek or Legally Blond, please check out the awesome TUTS museum too!

Blueberry Festival 2014

The Blueberry Festival at UBC is on now! I love going to this event, so we set out bright and early on the first day.
This was the line up after maybe 20 minutes. It's very popular...
Because they sell yummy things!
This year my friend got pancakes and I got blintzes, and we shared. Delish :)
And look - there's my friend Allison providing music and entertainment to all those awaiting blueberry treats!

More card sets

As one of my summer projects, I'm trying to clean up my stash of craft supplies. I have come to realize I have A LOT of paper. Card stock, scrapbook paper, you name it. So I made a couple of card sets for my sisters. Here's a playful set for kids:
And a more sophisticated look for young teens/adults:
I hope to make lots more to get rid of some of my paper and craft supplies!

Summer Eats

I had a chance to eat with my husband on the weekend. This is a big deal! We never have the same schedule, especially when both of us are doing shows.
Crepes! Attack!
This was at a German bakery near my yoga studio.
They had a yummy granola-fruit-yogurt dish, in adult and kids size.

The Black House and the Blue Sky, wrap

Last weekend we opened and closed this show! It was a great little project and I was very happy to be a part of it.
Here are some sneaky picks I took from my the wing:

Such fun. And now, on to the next thing! Which is -- well, I don't have another theatre project lined up yet, but something will come along soon!
