Well, it's been two weeks now in Toronto and things are better. I started acting classes again. I can't tell you the immense relief I felt when I walked into that room. Not only that, I get to work on a scene from one of my very favourite plays: Spike Heels by Theresa Rebeck.
The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival was also underway. It gave me a chance to re-connect with a whole bunch of old friends from around the Fringe: Jayson McDonald & Fully Insured from London (ON), Connor & Devon from Dale Beaner & the Turtle Boy and, of course, those cuties from the Peter n Chris Show.
And I even made an awesome sketch discovery. They're called Haircut. Just try and tell me you don't love this:
They have a show running bi-monthly on Fridays now at Bread and Circus. I would be checking it out, except, well this thing happened:

Tuesday, November 9 - Find out I booked a gig I never auditioned for. Probably because I'm cute and bilingual (oh and because I have an awesome agent and an agency that is celebrating 25 years in the business. That's important too.) The shoot will be taking place at Upper Canada Village. I send my measurements in and learn that I will be shooting on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday in Morrisburg.

Wednesday, November 10 - I have to be on set at 7:30 a.m. on Friday.
Whoa. So I guess I'm heading back to Ottawa tomorrow. See you on flip side!
