On Saturday I went to a Halloween party with my friend Hugo who lives out here in Montreal. Hugo makes his living working as an actor and as the artistic director of Théâtre des Tournesols, a local theatre company. I've been in Montreal for a week now and it's been fantastic... what a great city... what terrific people! (merci Hugo). The Halloween party was in a loft that's shared by a group of multi-disciplinary artists. Little Red Riding hood was dancing up a storm...
After shooting Rachael and Ben's wedding last Saturday, I went hiking on Cypress with Steve & Zoe. We stopped for lunch at the top of the mountain and took in the views, but a brisk wind kept us moving along.
The sun appeared, and our jackets came off... the mountain was
ablaze with colour.
I picked up some new photo gear on Saturday and spent the evening shooting with my friends at Charis' housewarming party... the perfect way to double check that everything was A-OK before tonight's gig with the BC Centre for Ability (they've hired me to cover their Donor Recognition event).
This shot of Jaz is one of my favourites. Click the link below to see some more!
My sister Caroline happened to be in the West End this evening and dropped by my place to see if I'd like to go for dinner with her friend Josh and his boyfriend Zhou Tong. We went for sushi at Kadoya's on Davie (so good). Of the four of us, I was the only one who didn't speak fluent Mandarin!
I auditioned for a new Canadian play at the Arts Club Theatre on Monday and had a callback for the same on Tuesday. This morning I read for a part on the TV show Stargate Atlantis. In the midst of this I have been in rehearsals for George Bernard Shaw's Overruled out at UBC (my alma matter). We tech tomorrow and Sunday and open next week for a limited 3 day run. Mark your calendars: Thursday March 29th through Saturday March 31st at the Dorothy Somerset Studioat UBC @ 7:30pm (just 5 minutes west of the UBC bookstore: click here for a Google map or here and follow the links for parking and other info on the venue). The play is Shaw's tongue in cheek exploration of infidelity and it's a lot of fun! I love my cast mates (talented BFA actors Yoshie Bancroft & Kate Hilderman and Vancouver veteran Guy Fauchon) and the director (MFA candidate David Savoy) and Stage Manager (Melania Radelicki) are terrific. Good design team, too. Read all about it on the Theatre at UBC website. Then come join us at the end of the week. Only 45 minutes long, this one's light and bubbly, like a good Champagne.
My fabulous cast mates Guy Fauchon, Kate Hilderman, and Yoshie Bancroft, in the costume shop of the Freddy Wood Theatre this afternoon for their first fitting.
