A Day Of Therapy

 Chris, Bracken and Adam. That's there "AHH, we're putting up a brand new musical" face.

Ms. Director. 

Fellas be acting. 

Adam demonstrating his mad skills of active listen. Very important for an actor.

Hey, Pals! 
Here are some pictures from one of our rehearsals for Therapy. Written by Alex Wright and Gavin Whitworth, directed by Bracken Burns and starring the talents of Adam Rhys-Davies and Chris Pollard, Therapy is a brand new musical that makes it's debut this Thursday. The Edinburgh fringe wont know what hit it. More photos to come.

I'm old fashion...






A big thank you to my best pal Micah for taking these shots! Also, "I'm Old Fashion" was introduced to me in college by my friend Grace.)

During my stay in Victoria last weekend my Dad convinced me to go to the Moss Street Art Walk, and I am so glad that he did! I lucked out and found these adorable vintage aprons (which I am slightly obsessed with!). Here are 4 out of the 5 aprons that I found! The dress I am wearing is one of my favourite finds ever. It's a vintage 1950's Anne Klein Junior Sophisticates (read more here). 

A. Vibrant, red and white apron with deep pockets.
B. This one is super cool and very unique! It's a hand crafted little flower petal apron. 
C. This one I am definitely keeping for myself - it has the most coverage! High waisted and knee length, yes please! I also love the floral pattern.
D. Dorothy's apron, am I right!!! I love the blue gingham! PS. That's my "I should be packing right now" face! 
E. Watch out Maria, (Sound of Music, not West Side Story) I'm coming your way! 

I wanted to do one last blog while I am still in Canada, so here it is. Also, I feel like I should sell at least two of these on my Etsy shop? Which ones do you think I should sell? 

Thanks for tuning in and talk to you on the other side!

Hey friends and tap dancin' enthusiasts!
Check out tap dancer, Melinda Sullivan and Swing Band, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy tearin' it up! This video is SO inspiring. This is the kind of work that I would kill to do. Mixing the old with the new, I love it! 

Thanks for tuning in! 

Ps. Tonight is my last sleep at home before I am off the UK! AHHHH!

O Canada!



Better late than never, right? Here are some pictures that I took on Canada day after arriving in Vancouver from Edmonton. I can't believe that it's less than a week till I leave Canada and start my adventure in the Europe!

A. The amazing view as I touched down in Vancouver.
B. Canada day fireworks, downtown Vancouver. 
C. Someone was feeling extremely patriotic.
D. Sisters armed with hot tea hoping to stay warm while watching the fireworks.

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for tuning in!

Kermit the Frog.

This was Kermit's little adventure from Whyte Ave to the Theatre. 

So here's the story. The family that Ben was staying with during Chicago was in the middle of moving and they didn't have any room to bring their old friend Kermit along. So instead of just tossing Kermit, Ben saved him and gave him to our friend Jason (who adores the muppets)! I love it when things get a 2nd life! 

Happy Tuesday and thanks for tuning in!

Chicago Part 3: My Boys

"Friends. A strong word, but a great sitcom!" - © Ponchon

During Chicago I made some pretty amazing friends. Two of the first friends I made during the contract  were Robert and Ben. I can't even begin to describe how much fun and how many inside jokes we accumulated over the three months. I miss these guys so much (even though we talk all the time, it's just not the same). True friends, friends for life. 

PS. The plaid was not planned and you can follow our joint twitter account @ThePonchon

I hope everyone is having a great week and thanks for tuning in!
