We just started this blog, but we’re already behind. Hurray! Haha.
Last week was just really awesome. For Susan, Monday was insane, very tiring, and fantastic all at the same time. BYU held a master class for those in the Stage Management program where they brought in the stage managers of Broadway’s Wicked to teach us about the industry. Among learning about what it’s like to be a broadway stage manager, they talked a lot about their families and how that was important to them in their lives. She then had work for Chariots of Fire (we’ll explain later), then to end the busy day, we both played in a hockey game. We’re in a hockey class with BYU and every semester they have a game against another class that Seven Peaks has. It was lots of fun and Susan is glad she didn’t die.
Matt this week has been working a lot on a show and doing lots of composing and things for his co-sound design on that. He also heard back and received a job offer for the theatre up in Sundance as the sound designer, sound engineer and lead mixer of the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He is super stoked for the opportunity to do what he loves, especially in the great outdoors with a beautiful background.
Susan is currently working as the co-master electrician of BYU’s theatre production of Chariots of Fire. She really enjoys being a part of it, even if it is a beast of a show with about a million things going on. And on top of that, she gets paid! That was a very busy part of the week as they had the light hang and focus and programmed this week, then had their big tech day on Saturday.
We ended the week having tons of fun up snowboarding in Sundance with Susan’s dad and extended family. It was a blast on Friday to have everyone there on the nice spring day (even though Susan got sunburned).
