I went to my lunch appt and WOW! I was not just asked music direct a show but work on a children's workshop for 5 weeks and music direct the show at the end of the program!! It is an incredible opportunity since it's with a very reputable theatre company - Arizona Theatre Company - which is an equity house! This is huge and might I mention the pay is great!! But there are a few problems:
1 - it's in Tucson. Monday thru Friday from 8:30-4:30pm. I would have loft apartment that is just mine (they pay for it) where I can live. But I have 4 kids and a husband that works. What about my kids? Geoff has to work and I can't leave my kids home alone. I could come home on the weekends but then if I have an apartment - the family could come and visit me on the weekends. UG!!
2 - I have a minivan. That's it! With Geoff just finished with school, we have not yet purchased an additional vehicle. He works only 3 miles from the house and the kids ride the bus and I teach from home or 4 miles from the house - we've done just fine with only 1 car. But that won't work if I have to leave it here or if I take it.
3 - I teach 30 students in a week. Lots of them leave for the summer but even if I piled them on Saturday - that's a lot to teach in a day. And who wants to teach on the day that I come home to spend time with the family? I know I won't.
AAHHH!!! What to do! What to do!! I don't want to lose this opportunity to get my foot in the door with this company and like I mentioned before - the pay is INCREDIBLE! And I might mention that Geoff is being VERY supportive - surprisingly enough! I think he is realizing how big this could be. And how talented his wife is - hee hee! HELP!
So . . needless to say - drop any comments you have! I'd love to hear them!
P.S. This is great therapy! Geoff doesn't even know this exists and I kinda like it like that - ha! I can complain and vent and he never hears it! HA HA HA!!!
