Happy 200-and fricken’-8!

I have been told by some that it is time to write something here!

Well, you guys, it has been so busy I have not had a chance to keep up….I thought that maybe no one was following along anymore but here we are…..I am gonna try and keep on it!

What a fall and winter, people!

Between the Party and Wizard I have been running my ass off……which actually needs to happen…..it seems that I started eating mid December and stopped exercising the same day….ouch……but it was sooooo busy!

Wizard was awesome!

Who woulda thought…Children’s Theatre and Sharron Matthews….together again for the first time!

But what a good time was had….I really enjoyed it…although those little ones sure kept me on my toes….you never knew when they were going to scream something out!

I mean really!

Boooo…..Hisss……well…I got to say boo right back and when they decided to talk to me while I was being an actor I could just reach down and be extra wicked!!!

AWESOME JOB!

I did love working at LKTYP and all of the people were excellent…..it was a happy place….and what with Georgie being there….sweet…..and Thom……sweet…and Shawn Wright…..what?……awesome……he is an excellent mess…..what fun I had with him and he is just great to work with……and I shared a dressing room with Molly Atkinson…..we were older and jaded together ……although we sure let our lines blur between who was good and who was evil…..backstage we passed it back and forth!

You know it is true, Molly!

And the Party?!

Well, I went all over Ontario!!!!

Hamilton was my first stop on my Christmas tour!

That is where the picture is from……oh my old principal Mr. Swan, who comes to see everything, was there……all of my friends from highschool, holy crap, and many others…..family and friends…..it was a great night with Allie Hughes, awesome and Stephanie Yelovich…also awesome!

Zachary Florence, young composer and player accompanied me that night….he was sweet and light of finger!

Then to the Diesel….. packed it out at about 200 people!!!

Woo hoo!

I wore three, count ’em, three outfits and debuted a bunch of new stuff….the Hooker medley seems to be a Christmas favorite…..who knew?

I video’d that night so look for footage in the next month on the old website!

Then off to Peterborough…..I had about 100……oh, they were naughty at the Showplace in the lounge….they already asked me back for next season!!

Randy Read was one of my guests there and he just told the best stories …..he told about how he got his partner Steve an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas a few years ago!

I had a blast there….then to Alliston……where there was a small but mighty audience…..there was a 9 year old in the first row……um…..they were quiet….which is always a challenge for me….but they all stayed and I got a nice review…go fig!

The topper to the year was New Years at the Waterloo Entertainment Centre…..what a night….the audience was from 24 years to 80 years….and they all had fun and laughed……it was truly a great night!
Steve Thomas played for me in Waterloo and at the Diesel…..I have known that man since I was 24…..he is just excellent and makes me laugh….his playing is full and excellent!…..oh and he likes pretty girls.

I am excited about the year to come……with theatre and the Party branching out a bit more…..I am booked in Brampton on the 7th of Feb……I was there in the summer and had a blast I look forward to going back!

Who knows where I will go next?

Oh…but I will be Artistic Director of the Dark Night Cabaret Series for Acting Up Stage this March.

The 10th, 11th, 17th and 18th……I will announce the guests very soon……I will be previewing a whole new show on March 10th.

I think I am gonna call it

‘Sharron Does Canada’

……

Sounds Patriotic, non?

  2. You’re back! I was so afraid you’d abandoned the blog, but I’m glad it’s not so. 🙂

    Love that picture of you! And everything you have going on sounds so exciting; I’m sad we’re missing so much of it. We’re thinking of you from over here, though, and can’t wait to see what’s going on by the time we get back! Miss you guys!
