Listen to the song that I sing,
Listen to the words in my heart,
Listen to the hope that I bring,
And you’ll start…
Oxagen’s Songs for a New World finished with incredible success, with the final night another sell out event. I am absolutely indebted to the Oxagen production team who were so approachable, engaged and genuinely in love with this musical as I am, who made this such a rich experience for me.
Spending production week in the space and walking the stage was a excellent place to learn; being able to experience the creative process between Director Penn Valk and LD Damien Calvert was an invaluable insight into the nature of bringing the vision of the work to life in the physical space.
Being able to assist with light rigging and patching was also a fantastic opportunity to put my skills into use in a new venue, and I was also able to operate a scissor lift professionally for the first time since I received my EWP license – a small thing in the grand scheme of a show, but an exciting first for me nonetheless!
I’d like to sincerely thank the Oxagen Committee and production team for engaging me in the incredible journey that Songs chronicles (and for introducing me to Jason Robert Brown’s works in general!) and sincerely hope to work with Oxagen again in the near future.
