I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.

What’s the most important thing about theatre?
Find your artistic home.
Be around people that you want to be with, that you want to and can work with well, and you will be an overall happier person.

Crazy Costume Stories
MEGAN HILTY (Wicked, 9 to 5)
“I was in Toronto with Wicked and the very first quick change (from the bubble dress into the Shiz schoolgirl outfit) was supposed to take about 15 seconds. After years of doing the show we could practically do it in our sleep but at this particular performance, the zipper on the bubble dress got stuck - the clock was ticking and I was supposed to make my grand entrance singing on top of a pile of bedazzled luggage. I didn’t know what was wrong (or even panic) until I realized I was about to start singing and I was STILL in the dress! Someone yelled “CUT HER OUT OF IT!!!” and proceeded to take a large pair of scissors down the back of my $30,000.00 gown! In the meantime, the people onstage couldn’t continue the scene without me - so while a swarm of dressers pulled, cut, and ripped me out of the first costume and shoved me into the next one, I just kept singing. And singing. AND SINGING for what seemed like forever (and making up whatever came into my head). The entire cast was stuck onstage waiting for me but eventually I rolled out on that luggage cart and everyone in the theater applauded. It was pretty apparent that something had gone wrong, but that’s what live theater is about - no matter what happens, the show must go on and the fun part is trying to cover up when things go wrong! Unfortunately, it wasn’t so fun for the wardrobe department, who had to frantically figure out how to put my bubble dress back together before I had to wear it again in Act 2!”

This weekend my current show Carter Stubbs Takes Flight is running in Dallas at the Magnolia Lounge! It’s awesome you should check it out!

Also, I am happy to announce my next TWO shows:

  • Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? 
  • Little Shop of Horrors

AHH! I will be Makeup/Costume Designing BBW and Makeup designing Little Shop. Terribly excited to be working on both of these shows with LCT. I’m also super pumped to be designing my first musical! 

Click any of the links for more info! 

Sorry I’ve been away guys! I’m currently house sitting for my Manager and she has no WIFI! #Dramaticsigh

But I’ll be back soon and will be posting some cool stuff! 

Also check out the Carter Stubbs tag for the production I’ve been working on and check out THIS page for show/ticket info. 

Have a nice one! 

What am I doing with my life? Why aren’t I reading all of these wonderful plays?? Grrr. I need to get on that. 

Basically, people give me some suggestions for plays to read!
