From Feast to Bigger Feast

Once again, the realization of time between posts never ceases to surprise me. Two weeks since my last post. WOW. Where doo the time go?

Well, since that last post when several possibilities were on the horizon, everything has gotten extremely busy on all my fronts. School started on August 7th for my Marina going to 2nd grade and Walker starting Kindergarten. Hey, what's with starting school on August 7th anyway? Didn't we used to have summer vacation all the way until Labor Day? In addition, my Disney work has really picked up for the final third of 2006. SAK is in pre-production for the Lost Comedies of William Shakespeare, the SAK High School Leauge is mounting again, and I leave this weekend for Las Vegas to do the Wayne Brady shows at the Mirage.

It actually looks like I'll be travelling a lot through the end of the month. After Vegas I'm back in Orlando for 2 days filled with auditions for Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor Comedy Club. On Wednesday I fly to Los Angeles for Playtests of the Monsters show at Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale. The following Saturday I fly from L.A. to New York for some more Monsters auditions. Whew! September is only a bit open and I know I'll be much better off if I use the time to ready for October through the end of the year when I'll be knee deep in Monsters rehearsal and development. We hope to have something unofficial (a sneak peak if you will) open by Christmas. These are the times that are most challenging to me as the lion's share of my work hours will be dedicated to Disney to get that show open. At the same time we're opening a new show at SAK. With SAK's current financial state I really don't have much choice other than to try and juggle both. The Disney Show Director work I do not only is my family's major source of income, but the Disney money helps SAK out as well. And I have to say I love doing both very much, but these are the times when the 2 worlds collide and compete for my time.

On a final note, I was successful in my attempts to set up video chat capabilities on the computer. Yay iSight and Mac!!! Now while I'm out of town, I'll be able to stay in touch with my lovely little ones and my lovely wife with both sound and sight. I'm very excited about that. All I'll need is a broadband connection to the Internet, which shouldn't be too hard to find.

Next post hopefully from Vegas!!
