As the end of 2017 neared, I promised myself at least the first quarter of 2018 as a break from acting so I could finish my writing. Well, life has a funny way of not going the way you planned.
The local drama festival is approaching and, for the first time, I can’t keep up with demand. I’m turning down roles that I would love to take simply because I’m already busy with other plays. It doesn’t look like that will change as the year goes on since I’m already being approached for auditions in April.
With my new film, “About Chris”, premiering in March and directors asking me to fill roles further in advance than ever before, this looks to be my year as an actor.
If “About Chris” is a success, I may even be able to afford more time to spend on my writing projects in between rehearsals. A week or so away from my full-time job could even be enough to finish off the script for my musical all together.
We will see.
