I saw this post today from Benjamin Emley and wanted to share his story of how he got through one of those embarrassing live theater moments. 
He played Edna in which he did an amazing job along with Luke Callahan by his side as the role of Wilbur.
They made the cutest pair and the audience fell in-love with them. 
One night during our run of "Hairspray," I made a small mistake and forgot to have my wig pinned down during the intermission. During my song- probably the biggest song I got to participate in throughout the whole show- The wig began to wobble noticeably, but I managed to keep it balanced... Until the end of the song, that is. In the big final moment of the song, it finally dropped. I stood there frozen, mortified, thoroughly embarrassed until the lights finally, mercifully went out.
I would not return to the stage until the final scene, so I sat backstage in the dressing rooms wondering how was I going to make this okay? What was I going to do to maintain at least a little bit of dignity? How could I keep this from becoming that one story that people ridicule me for forever?
The final scene eventually came. I stepped out on stage, opened my mouth to say my line, stopped, and reached up conspicuously to tug the wig down and ensure it was tightly pinned on top of my head. I called attention to my previous screwup. I made a joke of it.
Through this experience, I've learned that one of the best ways to circumvent life's embarrassing moments is to call attention to them. Don't hide from them. That only opens the door for others to poke fun at you. Be the first to make a joke at your expense and people will laugh with you rather than at you. .

Today your gift to MTOC will be doubled! 
We are excited to participate in the nationwide #GivingTuesday event through Facebook, where The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is matching gifts today only to participating nonprofits.

Musical Theatre Orange County was born out of a desire to give the youth of our community a chance to experience professional theatre, and learn from working industry directors, choreographers, musical directors and technicians. 
Partial age appropriate casting will allow certain roles to be cast with seasoned professionals, giving the younger actors the opportunity to work with and learn from these artists. 
We will showcase these actors in major musicals with exceptional production values giving our artists a taste of Broadway. Please go to Musical Theatre Orange County Facebook page and donate.

A true love story! 
Britany and Luke met 10 years ago.
They fell head over heels in-love rather quickly!  After 2 years of dating they married, and now have an adorable little boy named Declan. 
Their passion and love for theater have kept them involved with MTOC all the while. Luke & Britany both have participated in MTOC in different ways over the years but they never had song a duet together until...MTOCâs first Open Mic Night. 
Hereâs the romantic couple singing, Suddenly Seymour from Little Shop.

This is Elle Lynch she has been taking the Acting 1 Class with Rebecca Lumianski at MTOC Studio.

The past several weeks they have been studying monologues and learning how to express thoughts and emotions. 
We are so impressed with how committed Elle was to this class. 
She memorized her monologue and gave it her all, and it truly shows. Way to go Elle!
Rebecca will be teaching a workshop in January we will be posting sign up info soon. 
What a perfect Christmas gift! 
Lisa Lynch you must be one proud mama!

Fall Showcase students!

Hello Alumni & Fans - 
here's a little snippet from our show announcement last night at Open Mic Night. 
By now most of you heard that Tarzan will be our summer show.

This show is near and dear to many of us at MTOC but mostly to my husband Mitch. 
Every time he listens to the music he gets emotional. It touches his soul deeply. 
That said in a world full of so much division we wanted to bring this story back because we love the message so much. 
LOVE has no boundaries. 
We feel the world needs to hear this message again. 
We always challenge ourselves to do bigger and better shows every year so you can only imagine the journey we want to take you on for Tarzan 2.0! 
Our Tribe at this point is:
Mitch Atkins - Artistic Director 
Lori Atkins - Producer
Britany Callahan - Director 
Krissy Lynn - Musical Director 
Melanie Davert - Head Costumer 
Much thanks to all who came out and supported MTOC MIC NIGHT, it was a big success.
