What a ride the last couple of weeks it's been!
Early last week, I got a call from a someone who's been to my shows and who was a workshop participant some time ago. He called to see if I would do a Buck's Night show, but with a twist. Now, I've been to a number of Buck's Nights before, and I wasn't entirely sure if what I do really fits in what often happens at those nights.
But what he had in mind was quite different and smart. When he told me what it was, I agreed including bringing along a small cast.
The idea is that I would give the group a half hour workshop (using improv for communication and better relationships) to prepare the groom for his married life, and then we would do a one hour show, including members of the group. What a fantastic idea!
It's coming up soon, but after that call I also was asked to give a proposal for a birthday show about singledom and motherhood! How great is that?! I'm looking forward to that especially since I get to cast some of my favourite female improvising actors. It's going to be a great night!
Who knows? Maybe there will be an organisation innovative enough to set something up like this for their internal events or product launches. Let's just hope that they do their research and makes sure that whomever they get understands their culture, whether it be corporate or a bit more relaxed. Lucky for me, I know both as well as have the cast that are in it as well.
Also, a couple of weeks ago I was asked to MC a vintage fashion high tea for a couple of friends whom have their shops, the Prospector Store and Unknown Quantity, based in Parramatta. I mean, I know my clothing, right? I know the difference between pants and jeans and kilts and skirts.
On the day, like all events ever, there were unforeseen circumstances. However, it's a testament on how professional these ladies are that things carried on without any major hiccups.
Anyway, that's enough for me for now, but don't forget we've got a few things lined up for August. I'll post them up here soon, but in the meantime, head over to the Facebook Page for more details.
Have a great week and keep smiling!
