PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: So Much to Celebrate! A Two-Show Day at Goodspeed's Holiday Inn With Hayley Podschun
The Goodspeed Opera House's production of Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn officially opened Oct. 15 following previews that began Sept. 19. Hayley Podschun, who plays the role of Lila Dixon, shares a recent two-show day at the scenic Connecticut venue.
Good Morning from East Haddam, Connecticut!! All of us here in Holiday Inn are so lucky to be spending our fall up in “the country”. This is taken from the front porch (without a filter!!) to show you just how pretty it is here. Our Saturday matinees start at 3pm which leaves us lots of time to relax or get things done!
First up on this Saturday, a porch workout with Mr. Tally Sessions. We don’t joke around. He’s got his kettlebells and I’ve got pumpkins.
After a lovely workout, I need to refuel so I hit up the ever popular 32 Main!
Gotta check Playbill for the latest news along with the best breaky sammie and decaf pumpkin coffee.
Noah Racey showed up! Cheers to the beginning of our day!
Our sweet theatre along the Connecticut River. I feel like I’m living in a storybook out here! It’s amazing!!
Five minutes before half hour we have “jump call” for our jumpers in the song “Shaking The Blues Away”. Charles MacEachern and Tally Sessions are our strong rope men while Amy Van Norstrand, Juliane Godfrey, and Darien Crago jump and tap dance for their life!
Ashley Simeone from the wardrobe department and Gina Ferrucci from the wig department are ready for the day!
Antonia, Blaine, Crystal, Eric, Spencer, Kelsy, Chee make up our stage crew! We’re only missing Heather Klein! :-(
