Here's what's on tap for the Hammster:
It's Holy Week, so I'm working on music for Christ Church's Easter services. I'm playing percussion and various instruments (mandolin and accordion, if I can figure out a cool way to include them) at all three services. I'm also playing drums and sound effects for the Easter Vigil, where they are using the Old Testament drama I wrote last year again. I've added another art to my arsenal, as I will be creating a visual representation of one of the Stations of the Cross for Friday's service. I should probably get started on that, huh?
The day after Easter, I leave for Los Angeles, where I will be training with Shakespeare Festival / L.A. for Will Power to Youth this summer. Five days in L.A., finishing with a flight home on Friday the 13th. Good thing I'm not superstitious.
And of course, the day after Twelfth Night closed, we had our first production meeting for the 2007 Richmond Shakespeare Festival. Yes, less than 24 hours after closing the downtown season, I had already started work on music for The Tempest. (I'm looking for a percussionist and violinist, if you know anyone.)
But of course the big news of the day:
It's Opening Day, boys and girls.
Baseball is so good.
