Brand New Reel by Aili Venho

Hi Everyone!

Since I have a lot of time to kill in between show days aboard the Celebrity Reflection, I decided to teach my technologically-challenged self how to use iMovie. The result of this endeavor is that I made a brand new reel! Please check it out at www.youtube.com/watch?v=wc_pmWj1mqo

50 Shades! The Musical Parody by Aili Venho

Hi all!

A few weeks ago, I was offered the opportunity to join the off broadway cast of 50 Shades! The Musical for two weeks. I had auditioned for the show a year ago, got down to the final callback, but didn't book it. It just goes to show that my mother, a former musical theatre lady herself, has always been right in her advice that just because you don't book it then, they might call you a year or two later…you never know. 

I had such a blast learning and performing the show. I played the role of Pam, a housewife who wants to spice things up a bit by reading 50 Shades in her book club. Pam is such a fun character, and I hope I can play her again one day.  

Time for Sunday brunch! Peace, love and chicken grease.

Summer Stock! by Aili Venho

Hi y'all!

I am currently enjoying a beautiful summer in Arundel, Maine! I am doing four shows with the Arundel Barn Playhouse. We are now in rehearsals for 8 Track (The Sounds of the 70's) and will open on Tuesday, June 17th. Following 8 Track, we will then go into rehearsals for A Chorus Line (Diana Morales), My Fair Lady (Mrs. Pearce), and finally Legally Blonde (Pilar). 

It is beautiful up here and I am having a wonderful time with my future Tony Award winning cast members and crew. Please come up and visit! There are plenty of places to stay and it's only 5 hours away from the city. There are beaches, cute little towns and ME! For more information, check out www.arundelbarnplayhouse.com!
