After a month on the road we’ve returned home to Vancouver. Our last few days on the road where a little sentimental. We reflected on the places we’ve been, the amazing food we’ve eaten and the people we’ve met. We’ve been so lucky to travel all over BC and meet some of the most amazing people and we’ve gone to some pretty awesome schools.

A highlight of our trip was when we got a helping hand from the folks at Theatre North West. Our set was in need of some repairs and they offered the use of their facility. From the moment we arrived they made us feel welcomed, the TD John showed us the set for their upcoming production and he recommended lots of good places to eat around Prince George and Kamloops.
I think another experience that will stick with all of us was at one of our shows in Kamloops. We arrived during the lunch hour and met a bunch of students. They were hockey fans, so we got along pretty well. They watched us practice and they gave us a few pointers on how to be better players. Several of the students even showed Jordan how to do a new trick. Lili bonded with some of the gymnastic students and they showed each other their best handstand.
Its experiences like these that reminded us why we work in theatre and why we love what we do.
It’s good to be home, just over a week of shows left. We can’t wait to make even more memories as we visit more schools around Vancouver.
