The Jungle Book runs December 5 – December 17 at Magnus Theatre in Thunder Bay!
'Greg Banks’ play adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling stories has a great sense of adventure and playfulness. In this coming of age story, Mowgli, a child called a “man cub” by the creatures of the forest, is raised by wolves and by Baloo the sloth bear and Bagheera the black panther. They protect this human innocent as best they can from Shere Khan, the hungry tiger who wants to eat him. But when some monkeys trick Mowgli and imprison him, vultures carry the news to his would-be rescuers, including the hypnotizing python Kaa.'

So honoured to be able to say I've been awarded the Rob Wellan Scholarship Fund from The Grand Theatre!

I am constantly reminding myself (and am sore from pinching myself) of how crazy it is that I get to go to work every day, not only to do what I love with every inch of my being, but that I also get to do it Ben Vereen. He is truly remarkable on stage and off stage and lives up to every bit of his legendary status. In the short time he has been with us he has taught myself, and the entire cast, just as much about performing as he has about how to live out our lives in the most joyful, grateful, present and extraordinary ways possible. But then again, do we need to even separate the two subjects? As Ben would say, 'your life is onstage, start living it'. At first I was blown away by the wealth of wisdom and spiritual insight this man possessed. I immediately understood his title 'Spiritual Enforcer'. However, I quickly reminded myself that I have heard everything this man is saying before, from countless teachers, mentors and friends. What is truly extraordinary is how he is able to embody and live every single thing he preaches. (I have enough magical Ben Vereen quotes for a whole other post!) Ben Vereen has set a new standard for me as to the amount of self discipline and conviction I want to possess someday as a performer and human being. His practice as a performer and 'Spiritual Enforcer' NEVER stops, whether he is on or off the stage. Not to shamelessly plug the show or anything, but Ben demonstrates all this and more in our little show. It is beyond remarkable to watch from onstage with him... I can only begin to imagine what it would be like to witness his magic from the audience. I hope to someday watch this legend live from the other side! Until then, I guess getting to be onstage with him isn't so bad?
OH, I almost forgot... I can't help but also share this fun little story! I'll just quote my Facebook status:

"before our final dress rehearsal Ben Vereen phoned Liza Minnelli and put her on speaker phone so she could wish us a good show... needless to say, we are having an amazing show. THANKS LIZA ❤"
I might've died a little... for the record, I got to say 'hi'!
