Memories to Last a Lifetime


Auditions. Phone calls. Costume fittings.

Thirteen hour rehearsals. Falling asleep on a new friend’s shoulder. “Yep!”

Laughing so hard your stomach hurts, and tears are streaming down your face. Australian accents.

Finally learning each other’s names. Sharing secrets. Keeping secrets.

“Good luck.” “Break a leg.” “Don’t fall.”

Lacing up rollerblades, slipping into red spandex.

Three billion viewers.

Performing in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

At 6pm PST on Friday February 12th, the Opening Ceremony begins. I will be in the stadium, surrounded by thousands of other performers, watching the athletes parade in, preparing for my turn to take the stage. I’ve never wanted to remember anything, as much as I want to remember this experience. The cast, the directors, the music, the lights. It has been an incredible, once in a lifetime, whirlwind adventure that I don’t want to forget a second of.

If you will be watching the Opening Ceremony, which I highly recommend you do, and want to know when I will be on, leave a comment and I will send you a quick email with the details.
