It’s been a busy weekend here, in the Such Is Life household.
Well, outside the household, actually.
Friday night, I was part of a group of accomplished writers reading from their work at “Shining Stars”, a special event arranged by the folks over at Alexandra Writers’ Centre Society. That was a terrific evening, and kudos to everyone involved in arranging that soiree…
Yesterday afternoon, I was the guest speaker at the annual Canadian Diabetes Association Volunteer Appreciation event – another grand time. I did a half hour presentation that I may post if either the audio or video works out.
We followed that up by racing over to be part of a surprise 40th birthday party for a friend.
Tonight, we are off to Stage West, to view the latest production there – Mel Brooks “The Producers”. I’ll have a review both here and in the Calgary Herald over the next few days.
In addition to all that, I’ve started interviews with the director and choreographer of the show, which will end up in my “Talkin’ Theatre With” audio series, which you can link to from those notes further down over to the left, in my profile.
I may do another interview with the director, who happens to be acclaimed playwright/screen writer Lee MacDougall, who has gained loads of positive press for the film release earlier this year of one of his own plays. Which is “High Life”, co-starring one of my old amigos from Winnipeg, the talented Stephen Eric McIntyre.
It is a small world, after all….
Chow for now!
