It's been a wild, theatrical year, this one.

I just counted, and it turns out that by next week, I've traveled to foreign countries to see theatre six times this year. Six! How did that even happen? Cheap flights there, a fast ferry to Estonia there, and boom, suddenly I've seen theatre in six countries (well, including Finland) this year. They've all been amazing trips, but the most exciting adventure happened two weeks ago: I traveled to Germany with a friend to see Dracula the musical. I wrote about that in my musical blog, but in a nutshell, seeing one of my favourite actors live for the first time? Too amazing for words.

And that's not to say Finland hasn't been having a good theatrical season. I've gotten to enjoy theatre here, too – since I'm a theatre blogger, I've even been invited to a couple of premieres. Living the dream!!

Since I've spent the whole year in theatres, I'm finishing it with some theatrical activity, too. I've been organizing a Finnish musical themed advent calendar. I challenged all Finnish musical fans and professionals to take part, and happily, many took up the challenge. Just check out December 1st, with the ensemble of the Finnish production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in holiday mood! Heh.

The calendar's been taking a lot of my time lately, and then there's this little thing called journalism school I'm still attending in between all these musicals – so I sadly haven't have time to arrange any holiday themed activities in my dA groups this year. Last year's LesMisClub Secret Santa was nice, so maybe next year again... But if anyone's looking for some artistic activity during this holiday season, please check out PhantomFans's poster contest. I'll try my best to find some time to participate, designing a poster for Phantom of the Opera sounds like a fun challenge. Who else is going to take part?

By the way! If this year has been a bit wild, 2015 is going to be rather theatrical too, but in a different way. I'm going to intern at one of Finland's biggest theatres. If you're a longtime watcher, you may have heard of them already, seeing they have produced a couple of musicals that have inspired me to create some art:

Jekyll and Hyde: Character Sketches by Starlene Dangerous Game by Starlene Will I See Beyond Tomorrow by Starlene Rocky Horror Show: I Can Make You a Man by Starlene Jekyll and Hyde: Alive by Starlene

Eek! I'll be going all sorts of things related to PR, from updating the theatre's website to promoting their shows on social media. I'm very excited about this, can't wait for January!

First, onwards towards Christmas, though. What are your holiday plans this year? I think I'm just going to be lazy, eat stuff and maybe doodle some pictures. Or... maybe watch a musical or two?
