Hello Ellsworth Maine. After 21 hours of commuting between planes and buses, I arrived at ImprovAcadia (15 Cottage St., Bar Harbor Maine). I walked into the theater and was greeted by their wonderful high-school intern, Deckland. He’s a great kid who’s taller than I am. I watched a show and a half and participated a little in the jam show.
I just moved into my room. It’s huge compared to the room I’ve got in PDX. Everyone is great. I watched a show and a half, and I’m gearing up for a short form summer. I like the folks I’ll be working with.
Bar Harbor is a high-priced vacation town. As a result, you don’t get the usual white trash that flows through other vacation towns. All of the restaurants that I passed in walking from the shuttle between Bangor and Bar Harbor were upscale. However, there is one cheap pizza, sandwich, breakfast place open 24 hours, and it’s right across the street from the theater. There were art galleries and other stores that you might find in other vacation towns (fudge, t-shirts, knick-knacks, sex-toys, etc.)….wait. Did I say sex toys? Sorry, no sex toys, but you get the picture.
I chatted online with Kento, and he filled me in on Nate’s goodbye show (or was it Nate and Adam’s goodbye show). In his words, it was “divine”. No surprise. I’m still sad I couldn’t be there :[
I’ve got my first rehearsal in a few hours. I’m looking forward to stretching my improv muscles. Luego, compadres.
