The Seagull rehearsals by Sarah Deller

I love this play so much. 

We were working on Act I and Act II today. I think they went well, although there's still a few things I really need to clean up. Also I was really screwing up my lines, which is unusual for me - I'm still not sure why that happened. I am also getting nervous for Act IV - and I know my nerves are not helping. 

I wish I could devote all of my time to The Seagull. It's so hard to keep up with school. But I need to put so much work into Act IV. 

I live right by the waterfront and usually I'm down on the boardwalk constantly, but since the winter has been bad and I've been so busy, I've barely been down at all. I sat there for almost an hour after rehearsal to clear my head. I realized how much I love living by the water and suddenly I started connecting to Nina in all sorts of new ways. And then some seagulls started flying overhead, and I thought, alright, time to go home. 

PS I added some new photos to the Backstage section! 

I'm the Seagull - is that right? by Sarah Deller

Wow. School. Rehearsals. Things have been unreal lately! So busy. 

Rehearsals have been going super well for the Seagull! Turns out I have a lot more in common with Nina than I thought. There are still a bunch of things I need to figure out, obviously, and tomorrow we will be working on the daunting Act IV. 

Between homework and memorizing lines, I'm hoping to go catch The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel today!!!!!! I could use a day with Judi and Maggie. 

We're also preparing for our "panel auditions".... my god. I'm terrified. There are so many more things I want to do before the school year ends! And the summer is stretching out in front of me... so far without any work. So I'm about to really go on the job hunt. Any suggestions... send em my way. 

I am feeling a bit like the Seagull right now - so I need to draw on Nina and remind myself I'm not. Haha. 

PS - International Women's Day. Keep fightin the good fight. 

The Seagull Casting by Sarah Deller

I'm back in Halifax, and I have exciting news! Casting for The Seagull was released today, and I am absolutely thrilled to announce I will be playing Nina!

I am beyond excited. I think this part will be a real challenge for me and I am so looking forward to take it on. I've been extremely fortunate this school year to explore a bunch of really different characters. I think that's one of the best things that's come out of my training - I've been able to develop my craft through a wide variety of roles. 

And now, off for a pint!
