As I wear my Arts with a Heart 2013: Friends Helping Friends t-shirt around campus today, I am filled with a sense of pride, accomplishment and stress. I am so proud of the show this year. It has been a long 9 months (yes AWAH is basically a baby), but everything is finally coming together and we are in the home stretch.
I am the person in charge of public relations for the show, so during my time in pre production I sent hundreds of emails, made quite a few telephone calls (some to the wrong number) and ordered a heck of a lot of sushi (the people at O Sushi House know my name and usual order now because I’ve called them so often) for the pre-party that I decided to plan for our VIPs.
This show is one of the most amazing that I’ve been a part of in my 6 years of participating in Arts with a Heart. The theme is awesome, we have so many cool things happening in the show (don’t want to give anything away) and the best part is that I helped make it happen!
However, it is opening night which means my heart is filled with dread that something catastrophic is going to happen and everything will fall apart at the last second. I am being very superstitious today; I’m wearing my lucky earrings, knocking on all the wood I can find and I plan on being very careful not to spill any salt at lunch. I hope you all come out and see the show, it’s going to be really great.
