ALSO--- I am going on a study abroad trip through Rowan U. to St. John International University in TORINO, ITALY!!!!! I am so excited about this study trip. I have never been overseas and I'm leaving this coming Monday, May 18th at 4pm from Philly flying straight into Milan. I'm nervous as all hell, but I doubt I've actually realized I'm going on this trip. Therefore, THE SOUTH JERSEY RIALTO may or may not be taking a six-week break (depending on if I'm able to post or retrieve PR from local theatre and have the time to post while in Italia) So, if you don't see anything until the last week in June, you'll know why.
Thanks and Ciao!!!
p.s. I promise to be back in time for mainstage summer musical updates in SJ. I even had an early audition for Thoroughly Modern Millie @ OBSP tonight. We'll see what happens!
To help you unravel
The worries of living today.
When the poor brain is cracking
There's nothing like packing
A suitcase and sailing away.
Take a run 'round Vienna,
Granada, Ravenna, Sienna
And then a-'round Rome.
Have as high time, a low time,
And in no time
You'll be singing "Home, Sweet Home"
