How is it late August already? Kids have already had their first day of school and we have closed our third concert, 'Rhythm of Life'! That is BANANA BOATS! (Cansler speak for nuts!) The community here in Sonoma Valley went nuts for this show. It was a variety show that surprised you with every number. One minute you had a sexy fosse style number, then a lyrical dance to 'Fields of Gold' (danced and choreographed by Amanda Lehmen and Dylan Smith and such by Leslie MacDonnel and Stephen Stubbins)...oh, and can we talk about the fact that I have always thought it was among the fields of BALI??? Barley makes so much more sense. Great job, Meggie! That got the ladies dressing room laughing... There were other stand out numbers packed with energy where there was no dancing at all. My brained was tried and tested with learning a Pointer Sisters duet called 'Cloudburst'. It has so many lyrics and we sing it at lightening speed. It was a quartet of fierce ladies and we practiced every free minute we got... to the point where if you didn't know we were rehearsing, we looked like we were talking to ourselves like crazy people. You know how people look when you don't realize they have a bluetooth in their ear?? Well, picture that and fast forward it 3x and that is what we looked like on any free moment in rehearsal to make sure we got these lyrics out of our mouths! The pay off was awesome! I felt so proud that we did. Seriously, download this song and see what I am talking about!BWW Blog: Meggie Cansler - Superheroes in Love and Fantastical Family Night Rehearsals August 1, 2015
As one glorious concert ends, another rehearsal process has begun in full swing! Our cast of'Fantastical Family Fun Night' has been at it rehearsing all week! This show has some goodiesin it such as a fantastic tap routine to Step in Time, a groovy Jackson Five Medley, and I get tosing some Disney! Heaven! The arrangement is 'When you Wish Upon a Star' as a quartetwhich I think will be so beautiful under the stars in Jack London State Park. I also love thechance to have an excuse to sing to the stars and make my own wishes for things to come.When is the last time you wished on a star? In New York City, you never see any stars. Sonoma's night skies glitter nightly.
