Being in the right place at the right time, Kristin, isn't something you can force.
It just happens when you keep busy. Effortlessly.

No, really! Imagine that, Kristin! And then get busy, because AMAZING awaits!
And I would add: Being prepared. Doing your research and practicing. Then when you are busy with that, and busy setting appointments, and busy working towards your goals, THAT is when being in the right place at the right time pays off.
Today I have a meeting at the Klein with Karl Gastayer, the Exec. Dir, and three of my Broadway pals who will be teachers next year in the ASK (After School At the Klein) along with Andy and me. This is a new Fall program that outreaches to the high school students in Bridgeport. We have very good support in the area/schools for this, and are now taking the next steps.
Today is the official introduction of the teachers that NPT can bring with major clout and Karl who has impressively worked to help make it happen. I will be in charge of college interns, and teachers as well as helping to creatively plan the classes and program. The program will also include private teachers from KEYS (another non profit) and the Bridgeport schools for symphony and choir. Classes include cool stuff like Puppetry, How to audition for film/tv and commercials, Flashmob as well as Broadway auditions, Theatre and Sketch-up (a design class).
This is will be a super template for how to partner as non profits and make something extraordinary happen in a community for youth mentoring and education and leadership.
