Hi all. Have some news before coming out my annual June hiatus next week—and before we head out for the long weekend.
As many of you know, life with more cowbell is a one-person, unpaid, part-time passion project; this means I support myself with a day job. My previous full-time position was phased out in May 2016; and I’ve been job searching, networking and freelancing ever since, as well as doing voice-over auditions since I signed on with VOX Talent in March.
I’ve been invited to a number of awesome Fringe shows this year. In previous years, I was able to take a week off to cover 20 shows. That’s not possible this year, as I’ll be starting a new job on Tuesday (yay! details to come). As a result, I’ve set up an abbreviated Fringe schedule for cowbell—covering fewer shows (I’ve booked 10) and writing shorter blog posts.
I want to thank all the Fringe productions that invited me to their shows. If I don’t get to your show, it’s not a reflection on your company or your play—it’s just that I wasn’t able to fit it in (I’ll also be covering the opening of Hogtown and a matinée of Billy Bishop Goes to War in mid-July). Even if I’m not able to see your show, I’ll do my best to shout it out on social media.
Have a great long weekend and happy Fringing! Please support local theatre and artists all year round.
