OCTOBER 3RD 2018

Something about our fancy FETCH street sign in the back alley really made sense to me. After all the excitement and press and cool, crazy things that I could have never anticipated would be part of my JOB, seeing this guy in the alleyway reminded me of what will be truly lasting...our theater and our cast, doing the work, 8x a week. I am in awe of all the love this show gets, and grateful to be a part of the exciting extra things we get to do because of it. But at the end of the day, I am most grateful for this......to remember that the greatest privilege of all is walking through our stage door every night, no photographers in sight, and getting to tell a story with my friends. #meangirls #homeschooledjunglefreak
