Meet our Guest Star: Ann Morrison
So, Ann was gracious enough to share a little bit of her life story with our blog readers:
Well, yes it is true that I have spent the last 14 years living in Sarasota, Florida so my blood has thinned. Believe it or not, 60 degree weather is cold for a blood thinner. (TEE HEE!) Not complaining. I love sweaters. I just may not have brought enough, so Goodwill here I come.
So far my stay in San Fran has been pleasant, though I haven't been sightseeing much. I have a few writing projects to get accomplished, one being a book about my experience working and creating a musical theatre workshop and road show for persons with developmental disabilities (Down Syndrome, cerebal palsy, mental retardation brain injuries etc.) I had left the teaching and artistic directing part of it to explore outside of Florida, but realize I miss this population too much.. Hey San Fran, are you interested in a program here?
The rehearsals for Can-Can are great fun andI I love this cast. I look forward to running it in the Eureka theatre and spending my evenings with them all.
One of the cool things is we have a hands-on healer in the company. I came here with a bad stomach and at times I think the acid I have is going to burn a hole in me and attack civilization as we know it. This dear heart male after a simple request for "a laying of hands", heated up his hands and began a simple but powerful touch process, that sure did calm my system and
triggered some emotional release. I have been a care giver for so many for so long my body wanted a break from worry and high speed rescuing. Looks like the rescuer needed some rescue. Thank you Bill.
I love the theatre. You meet such great people in it, all exploring such wonderful places.
Great people indeed. So cool to have Annie with us, both on stage and off!
