"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.- Gail Goodwin

Training at the Pantages was a lot of fun. We got to learn about the history of this theatre, and the fact that it's considered an historical landmark and took a tour of the building. The place is absolutely majestic! My first thought was how fabulously perfect the lobby would be for a cocktail reception followed by how awesome it would feel to perform on that stage in front of the 2,703 patrons who can fill up the audience.

I originally thought this would just be a seasonal job until after Christmas but to my pleasant surprise I found out we can work here for as long as our schedules allow if we remain in good standing. This is news to my ears because I REALLY think I'm gonna like this job. We get our schedules a whole month in advance and much like waitressing/bartending we can switch our shifts with coworkers if we need to {perfect for days that I have auditions, shoots, or events}. We get to see some kick ass shows! {Seriously their 2010 season is awesome.} Plus we're even allowed to read books or scripts when we have downtime. Total SCORE!!! A flexible day job that keeps me around other actors & artists? Hell to the yeah!

P.S.- The fact that I'll walk across the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd everytime I go to work is inspiring. One day I'll have my own star on this street, mark my words.

  1. I think I'd love any job that allowed you to read during your downtime.
