I was recently asked to take part in a production at the Imperial Theatre in support of breast cancer awareness. As always, I have a lot on on my plate, so when the request came in I have to be honest I did hesitate before I answered. I can not tell you how happy I am that I decided to say yes.
I was able to meet a group of fantastic, Sarnia-Lambton business leaders and spend some time getting to know them, but I also had so much fun in the rehearsals and during the performance itself.
We were given our scripts only about a month before the performance at a meeting where we read our parts cold, we then had two rehersals the week prior to the event and one dress rehearsal the night before the event. This was a group of busy women who are entrepreneurs, who own and manage large companies or non-profits or have other busy careers. The organizers, Holly Wenning and Henri Canino, were aware of the challenges of getting the group together and were able to lead and coach us with a minimum of rehearsals.
I had a blast doing this performance of "Love Loss and What I Wore" and I would not hesitate to get involved in something like this again.
Proving that a great show is always in fashion, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, with its compulsively entertaining subject matter, has become an international hit. This intimate collection of stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron is based on the best seller by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons’ friends. Like the popular book, the show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to, creating one of the most enduring theater experiences.
Sponsored by One Tooth Sarnia, the proceeds from this production and the silent auction went to the Breast Cancer Society of Canada.
Oh, by the way, I am never too busy for your referrals
