a little bit of culture

I just get tickled pink when I’m reconnected to things that bring me great joy.  I got the wonderful opportunity recently to combine one of my two ultimate passions – photography and theatre.  Here’s a minor confession for you all… I spent the first 23 years of my life with the ultimate goal of being on Broadway.  Yep, you heard that right, I’m an actor, and I carry all the great dramatic personality traits that most actors have (out-spoken, laughing a little too loud, over-reacting to tiny things… it’s great).  I even entered college as a Theatre major, sidelined only by the eventual overwhelming desire to eat, and therefore, I switched to Computer Engineering.  My last production to date was Hair, and I have the proud distinction of being the only cast member who did not have to strip to her birthday suit… being cast in a main character has its advantages.

Anyway, I’ve held onto the desire to eventually do theatre again, but being in Ireland, there aren’t many productions happening in our sleepy little town. However, thanks to a recent art-revival movement amoung the gen-Xers of the community, a brand new theatre company has opened up around the corner, Passionfruit Theatre, and I had the wonderful honour of documenting their opening production, East of the Sun, West of the Moon and A Pot of Broth.  Here are a few of my favourites from the evening.
