Fat Pig!

I know I’ve been MIA here for a while now, but I have a really good excuse.

I’ve been hard at work on a production of Neil LaBute’s Fat Pig at the Repertory East Playhouse in Santa Clarita. I’m playing Helen alongside a really really great cast.. I’ll post a teaser trailer here as soon as it’s up.

We open July 10th and run for 3 weeks on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, until closing on Saturday, July 25th. Tickets are $18. -available at http://www.repeastplayhouse.org or by calling 661.288.000

I’ve been literally fantasizing about playing this part since I first read about Ashlie Atkinson in 2004. If you’re anywhere in the LA area- please please come and check us out! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Congratulations on landing the role! The play sounds like it will be awesomely smart. I wish so badly that I lived even remotely close to LA or had the money to drive/fly out to see this play. I’m sure you’ll be great in it though.

    And hurry with the trailer,lol. ^_^ :p

    I’m so happy for you, your excitement shows through in your post. Our daughter wants to get a job in architecture and move to L.A. If we get down there in July for an interview, we’d love to come see your performance. You visualized this and made it real, cudos to you. Linda

    If I wasn’t across the country I’d be there! I can definitely see you doing an amazing job with that tough role.

    Good luck on your show! My son is doing “Hello Dolly” (singing and dancing) here in MO this & next week too. So there are some REALLY great productions going on around the country. Break a leg! :o) Adios, J

    Congratulations! Hope everything goes well for you! (:
    I’ve just been watching your videos on youtube; and I must say I am so proud of you. I will be showing these to my mother, grandmother, cousins ans everyone in my family.

    We are a big family, and I’m only fourteen years old; and for one I am not happy with my weight. I’m considered overweight for my height by all the girls and boys my age. But yet, normal in my family’s eyes and doctors.

    I was just wondering, maybe a video for those of younger generations. Its harder to accept yourself when nobody else does (and you’d know highschool is full of s***.)

    But overall, I just wanted to say thank you.
    Your videos have really really made an impact on me, and will continue to do so as I grow.

    I saw the play yesterday with my Mom and thoroughly enjoyed it! You were great, very natural and believable. We got completely wrapped up in the story and were talking about it the rest of the day. I wanted to say something to you after it was over but figured you probably wanted to get out of there and enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Today I watched your youtube videos (only learned about them yesterday) and was even more impressed. I love the positive message you send. I believe it wholeheartedly but still find it hard to internalize when it comes to myself. You’re a fabulous role model, thanks for speaking out.

    Congratulations, ‘wish I could be in the US to see that!
    And thank you again for all the “fat rant” videos, they are just great, and helped so many curvy girls to feel better! I put one on my blog, ‘hope you don’t mind (let me know if you do!)

    This is definitely a play that I would love to see. I wonder if it will ever come to Detroit.
