Come see FASS!

The five days since my last post have been action-packed.

Honestly, does anyone actually say “action-packed”?

And yes, it should be hyphenated.

Anyway, I don’t have a lot to say, because I’m tired and have deadlines to miss. I mean, meet. But I wanted to get in one more shot in January, and the message is simple.

Come see FASS!

It’s gonna rock. The show is great–it better be, since it’s consumed an entire month of my existence.

For those of you who don’t know (or remember) what I’m talking about, FASS is an amateur theatre group at the University of Waterloo that’s all-inclusive: anyone who wants to be involved can get involved in the production. Over the year we write a script that includes a bunch of song parodies and a lot of laughs.

This year’s play is about two UW theatre groups competing in a Shakespearean festival. We’ve got lots of talented actors, singers, and dancers ready to put on a great show. For my part, I’m the music director, band director, and vocal coach. I also have a couple of onstage singing roles, play saxophone with the band, and wrote a portion of the lyrics and music. So it’s an understatement to say that I’m heavily invested in this thing.

I’m very proud of the show we’ve put together, so I hope you’ll all come and see it. The play runs from Thursday to Saturday, with an early show on Friday and the infamous Friday Late performance. The latter usually involves an audience of past FASS members and can get pretty wild (Be warned: Friday Late goes well past midnight)!

Rather than quote showtimes and ticket prices, I’ll just point you to our Web site.

I suspect this is the last you’ll hear of me before the show’s over, so I hope to see some of you there.

Now I’m off to rework my deadlines…
