The Lights of Broadway … er South West Marine Drive – A history of my involvement in theatre. Part 2

My next show at the Metro introduced me to another great director, Don Briard – Teacher extraordinaire.  When I was approached to be his Stage Manager, we met at an event at the theatre.  We seemed to hit it off right away by trading gentle, good humoured barbs at each other.  Barbs?  Actually, they were more like harpoons meant to skewer each other.

But, we hit it off right away and I took on my second show:  Arsenic and Old Lace.

This show introduced me to a whole new assortment of actors and crew.  This is where I got to work again with Blaine Anderson, Caitlyn Clugston, Nathanael Vass and Val Deardon.  I also got to work with Rob Gillespie, John Hedgecock, and Pat McDermott.  It is also where I got to meet Alison Schamberger who will go on to be my director for most of my other shows at the Metro.  We opened to great reviews.

It was an amazing show to work on and I had some great laughs.

This show teed me up for many more shows and I was happy to have found an outlet for my ability to micro-manage people without pissing them off too much.
