Fringe Siddhartha

Less than a month ago I attended a musical “enchanted evening” at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Gardens with a fellow actor from the Vancouver Playback Theatre troupe to listen to some very talented musicians. He tells  me that he is directing a production for the Fringe Festival, based on the story of Herman Hess’ novel, Siddhartha.  I tell him I want to get more directing and producing experience.  By the end of the evening, I had become part of the ultra-talented team that is producing an amazing journey for Vancouver audiences.

The rehearsals are well underway and it’s exciting to see the choreography and actors develop so quickly.  I hope I can keep up, as it is my first time stage managing, along with some light assistant director duties. Today we had a production design meeting and from that, I was totally inspired and excited about the costumes!  The music, I should mention, is also gorgeous; featuring locals such as Buckman Coe and Pepe Danza!  Held in a beautiful urban oasis where East meets West, it will be a unique and moving experience for all.

There is a limit of 70 seats per show so definitely buy tickets in advance!  It’s expected to sell out.
