Moonie in the world: Katie Dedarian
And then some of us have regular full-time jobs and are crazy enough to take on theatre in the evenings. If you're thinking that results in very little free time you are correct. I actually tried to pull off the full time job/regular theatre work life for quite a few years. At some point I decided it was time to focus on my non-performing career because I had goals like buying a house (in the Bay Area no less.) So it's been quite a few years since I have trod the boards in an actual show (vs. a cabaret evening of song here and there.)
When someone is really really lucky, then their "day job" is also related to the arts. (I was working in technology...not very closely aligned to my creative side, but lucrative.) Such a lucky person is Moonie Katie Dedarian (most recently Luce in The Boys from Syracuse), who was recently appointed the Development Director for the San Francisco Girls' Chorus.
I think we should all make Katie look good in her new job, check out the SFGC site and support the Chorus.
Of course this assumes that you've already done your part to support 42nd St. Moon, right?
