If you’re in the Fresno area this weekend you should check out Yo, Vikings! at Children’s Musical Theaterworks Fresno! The show is all new and CMT staged the premiere production! I’ll be there tomorrow afternoon supporting my friends! :)
Here is a story all about it in The Fresno Bee, Yo Ho!
Next week I join rehearsals for my next show Show Boat at The Fresno Grand Opera. So far I’ve given the film soundtrack a listen and I still don’t know the plot, but I’m very excited to perform with FGO. Finally, a fully staged production with big sets, a live band and a BIG theater to perform in; and with some good friends as well :)
I went to San Francisco with Marc this Wednesday to see the national tour of Mamma Mia! at The Orpheum Theater. Since I’ve been busy with Hairspray and Basically Brandon this was actually my first show of the new year. Nothing like a spur of the moment bro trip!
I gotta say, I’m not the worlds biggest ABBA fan (they play their songs at work too much) but DAMN was this a good show. The energy, the choreography, the band, the beautiful people on the stage; everything in this show was over the top. Now I see why so many people enjoy it.
I’d like to start off by saying two words: Chloe Tucker. She’s a BoCo alumnus, brunette beauty and powerhouse vocalist. As Sophie, this girl was so spot on and animated during the show it was as if she was about to leap off the stage and sing to you. I loved the way she would give her lines and then giggle at the end of sentences; so cute.
