Waking up around 11:15 a.m.


Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Blueberries, and Almond Milk. English Breakfast Tea.


Catching up on business, mainly ticket related things for the show tonight.


Ana’s off to Durham, NC to see a show with Jordan.


Meanwhile, I’m off to the Kroc Center for tonight’s big Broadway show “The Magic of Christmas”. We had a dress rehearsal here yesterday and now’s the moment we’ve all been waiting on. Everyone is here getting things ready. I work on preparing all the mic packs and cameras. I got Anna and Olivia here to help usher people in when they arrive. Then, Allyson and a few of the parents help with the box office area. There’s so much to orchestrate it can get hectic.


PB&J. Crackers. Coffee.


But then the house lights dim and the show begins! Reid and I control the sound and light cues from backstage. I’m getting up and down to help move props and set scenes. We come across a technical issue with Kate’s mic, which causes us to announce a “technical hold” just to deal with it. But we get it back up and running in no time.


It’s such an honor to be working with this cast and witness all the talent and emotion that explodes on this stage. Can’t wait to do it all again the next day.


I give Anna a ride back to Music Makers. She’s been a big help today.


Back home. Catching up on things. Eating leftovers for dinner. Doing chores.


Uploading video footage.
