Understudying is hard work!
Company meeting, brunch with friends at Cora’s (a local favorite, for obvious reasons!) and back to work! Today’s rehearsals were cool, but most of it was for the roles I’m understudying – hard work since you don’t get many opportunities to practice with the other scene members, in the rehearsal space, with props, while the director’s there… It’s especially tricky u/s’ing 2 people in the same number… Practice, practice, practice…

It’s beginning to look
Toronto’s Christmas season officially began with today’s Santa Claus Parade! I decided to watch it on tv from the comfort of my room… After some rehearsing, a friend and I (and quite possibly the entire population of Toronto) headed to Eaton Centre for some shopping. I’ve never seen a mall so packed! It was fun (and productive) in spite of the crowd, and a scrumptious dinner at Milestone’s was a nice finish to the day 🙂
