The days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are important. According to tradition, Jews are supposed to spend these ten “Days of Awe” reflecting over the past year and looking to the new one. We apologize to old friends, make amends and do what we can do make sure we are inscribed into the Book of Life for a healthy new year.

As Rosh Hashanah approaches, I am taking a moment to think about all that I have done and accomplished in the previous year. This allows me to begin thinking about the year ahead; I can set my goals, create a bucket list, and think about how I can better myself.

Over the years many people have asked me “When are you going to get on stage?”. These questions have come both from our theatre community of actors and technicians, and from Vex audience members. One of the reasons I wanted to follow through with taking on a role was to remind myself what actors experience when getting a production ready.
