How the show came to life...as written by Karen

"I was riding my exercise bike in my basement on a cold January morning. I had just finished a writing sprint and a rehearsal for what I wasn’t sure would be a storytelling show, or a book signing keynote event for my newly self published book "Be Weightless".
That morning I had seen in my newsfeed an announcement for Shuswap Theater's Annual TotE Festival in the summer.
Hmmm, maybe I thought…
Then a song came on and I thought….oh this sounds like Megan….Hmmm I wonder if she would like to sing as part of a storytelling show with me.
By the time the workout was over I had Megan cast as the singer songwriter of the thing I was writing in my imagination. I hadn’t even seen her in 2 years.
I texted her on Instagram ..."Megan, I have an idea….
For the next 5 weeks we met every Friday and wrote, rehearsed, reorganized, laughed, cried, and then we decided we’d take this show to the stage “no matter what”
We applied and were accepted to DEBUT at TotE Festival
