Up where the air is clear
Morning scene work, then in the afternoon I had my first chance to fly! A few of us trekked to the Toronto School of Circus Arts on the outskirts of Toronto where we had our first training session. It was pretty cool – just sit back and enjoy the ride! The harness is pretty substantial and has to fit quite snugly, so that’ll take a little getting used to, but otherwise my part is easy – just pose and let the operators bring me in 🙂 It’ll be so exciting once I’m in costume and on the ship – apparently I’ll be coming in at twice the height we did in the studio!
That night, a friend and I went to the touring production of Mary Poppins, which happens to be in Toronto right now… seemed only fitting 😉 It was a great show and very well done – but the Julie Andrews movie will always be my favorite version of the story…
