YAY!!! I'm going back to LA again...  
...in late April! :D I just got the most fabulous email today from Julie Dixon Jackson,... apparently she's going to be starring in "I Love A Piano" with Kevin at Musical Theatre West! :) Honestly, when I saw the casting notice for the show a few weeks ago, I saw the roles of George and Ginger and immediately thought of Kevin and Julie... Yay for dream casting in my mind, sometimes it does work! ;) I haven't seen Julie and Kevin in a show together since "Side Show" - I'm SO excited!! :)

I was SO excited, in fact, that I emailed Kevin as soon as I found out to ask him if I could post the news on his site. The oddest thing was that he answered me within minutes... and that NEVER happens!! I hardly EVER catch him online...

The rest of my evening was spent finding airfare (aloha airlines won't let me use my FF miles until AFTER summer - how's that for suckage?) :P Thank goodness I found something fairly reasonable to LAX (blech!!) on United... I really hate flying into LAX, but it's probably the best I'll be able find on such short notice. Found an Extended Stay America hotel in the area for a GREAT rate of $44 a night. :D Now all I need is a car, time off from work, and an extension notice for "Pilgrim" and then I'll be all set. :D

In more lovely LA theatre news, Bets was sweet enough to send over some GREAT opening night photos of the cast of "Pilgrim" for her site. :) Such great photos!! I especially love the one of Bets with Steve... it's just SO cute!! :) She's really been SO wonderful about the site, always offering pictures from her personal collection, sending links to things of interest, and just generally being so supportive of everything. :) She's the best. :) I REALLY hope I'll be able to see her on my next trip!

I also received an email from Ronn Goswick the other day (whose new theatre company - Valley Musical Theatre - put on the Fractured Broadway concert) He was sweet enough to send me some production photos of Bets in "Guys & Dolls," "Me & My Girl," and some photos from the Fractured Broadway concert. :D It was SO sweet of him to offer to send them to me and I was completely shocked when I received his wonderful email out of the blue. :)

I'd better run, I need to catch up with all of your entries. :) If anyone is interested in catching a performance of "I Love A Piano" with me, please let me know - I'd love to see you all!! :D Hope everyone has a nice evening!! Big *HUGS*
Current Mood: excitedSO excited!!

(1) Remember that, depending on when, you might be able to stay with us in Northridge.

(2) When are these shows. End of April is busy: The weekend of the 22/23 we'll be in Perris for the Train and Trolley Festival at Orange Empire Railway Musuem. On the 29th, we're going to the Ren Faire.

Awww, Daniel that is SO sweet of you to offer! :D I've always had pretty good luck getting incredible deals on hotels, though and I really like the Extended Stay chain - I almost feel like I'm home there. :D

I'm seeing "I Love A Piano" the weekend of the 28th. I'm still waiting to hear back from a few friends about which day is best for them, but I was thinking possibly of the 30th - matinee? The only thing is that there probably won't be Goldstar tickets available for that performance. :( There are RUSH tickets available the day of the show for $25 (?), but I'm not sure how many can be picked up at a time... I'm still waiting to hear back from my other friends. If they pick the Friday night, then maybe Sunday evening? Those tickets are available through Goldstar now for just $27.50. I guess it all depends on what date my friends pick... Are you possibly interested? :) I love to see you guys, but I know that Long Beach is a bit of a drive!

I'll talk to folks tonight. I know that Sunday NSS&F has religious school (so we don't get out of North Hollywood until 1pm), but we have made it down to Long Beach before....

(recognize the icon?)

Hi Daniel, I'm sorry I couldn't get back to you last night. Mark & I saw Drood at our local theatre and got home pretty late... My friends wanted to meet up to see the Sunday evening show. Would you (at all) be interested in joining me for the Friday evening or Sunday matinee?

And I've been trying to figure out your icon since I saw this post and all I can think is that it reminds me of "A Class Act" because the guy on the right reminds me of Ed Kleban. But I'm probably wrong, what is it from?

Daniel the California Highway Guycahwyguy on April 1st, 2006 05:31 am (UTC)
Yes, the icon was from "A Class Act".

Friday evening would be out. I still don't know on that Sunday yet; we may be beat from the Renaissance Faire the day before.

YAY! That's exciting news! I know your LA trips are just like my NY ones...and I know how happy and wonderful they are, and how great it is to have something like that to look forward to! :D :D
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on April 1st, 2006 03:52 am (UTC)
Awww, thanks SO much, Karen!! I know you understand just how I feel! :) It feels like I can deal with whatever comes my way (work-wise) now that I have something to look forward to. :D

Have fun!

Have you notices FF miles are designed for your incovenience? perhaps it's just me.
Sheri: Sydney *SIGH*shutterbug93 on April 1st, 2006 03:51 am (UTC)
Thanks! :)

And I have a long-standing love/hate relationship with Aloha Airlines... :P At times they are my best friend... at others my arch nemesis. :P
Michael Corleyclivec on April 1st, 2006 03:53 am (UTC)
I've never actually redeemed airline miles. Hotel points, but not airline. I'll by trying to in about a year, we'll see on which side of friend/foe they fall!

This is totally unrelated to your entry, but, where do you get those nice templates for your websites? I've seen a lot of sites like that. Is there a certain program to use, or can you make one right in MS front page? I'm trying to be a bit more creative with my site, and my layouts are boring :( Anyway, have a wonderful time in LA! It seems as if you've just gotten back from one :P
_tropicalheart on March 31st, 2006 09:25 pm (UTC)
Hi Sheri, it's me again :) Ignore my messege regarding the template. I came up with one to use, finally! :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on April 1st, 2006 03:49 am (UTC)
Hi Kristen! I don't use templates at all, I design all my sites myself using tables. :P Thanks about the LA trip!! I'm SO excited! :)
