Summer Student Blog Post: Hello!

Hi everyone! My name is Miriam, and I am working alongside Ally this summer as the other Quick As A Wink summer student. I’m excited to have the opportunity to write a blog about all of the wonderful things going on this summer!

While this is my first summer working for the Quick As A Wink Theatre Society, I delved into the world of theatre last year when I was involved as the rehearsal pianist for The Little Mermaid! I am thrilled to be working in this great community and to have the chance to work in a field related to my current studies at Acadia University in a Bachelor of Music Education.

Since starting three weeks ago, I have been pretty busy putting up posters for The Music Man around the Annapolis Valley, hanging and organizing lots of cool costumes and props in our new storage facility, and reading some scripts to decide on which play to do with the Drama Camp happening in late July. This week I have been traveling to a few schools, where I learned how to play the games “Whoosh” and “Zip Zap Zop”, as well as presenting to the students about our upcoming summer camps! I met lots of great students, and I hope to see many familiar faces later this summer. If you want to register or learn more about the camps available, you can click here! (They are filling up fast!)

This weekend our talented cast and crew members performed Meredith Willson’s The Music Man, with additional performances occurring on June 9 at 7pm, and June 10 at 2pm and 7pm. To find tickets you can go on our website, or stop by the Mosaic Market in Windsor or Box of Delights in Wolfville!

Another piece of exciting news- this week marks the start of the Windsor Ghost Walks, with the first being this Thursday (June 8) at 7:30pm! I’m going to be there with some fun door prizes to give away, so hopefully you will come join me! For more information, you can click here.

Now that I've started posting, expect to hear from me (and Ally!) regularly; this summer is going to be wonderful!

Until next time,

Miriam
