    Aaah, yes I can finally tell you guys something incredible awesome!

    A year ago, a theater director found me on the internet, liked my Snoetje videos and ambitions and offered to help me making a theater show! WOW!
    But I can't make a full show without a partner. So, I had to find one, which was hard. Luckily I suddenly found a very nice person who loves to entertain children, she's even with an amateur circus! :D I had to overcome one of my biggest fears to ask her, but I'm so glad I did. She said yes!
    We've been talking a lot and we finally started practising, so far it's going very well! It's so fun to work with these people!! :D
    And I'm super inspired every time we work on the show! We already have sooo many ideas! :D

    And now, yesterday I heard we have a date and a place! (if anyone wants to know, it's the 6th of april 2015, theater Imperium in Leiden, Holland) and the title is "playing with snoetje"
    It's getting so real now! Woah! And I'm so excited for this!

    I can just use all my creativity and imagination, and play around and have fun! It's going to be different than standard clown shows (because I like being different), but I'm sure it's going be sooo fun! And happy too! I'm thinking of a living cartoon (I still have the comic/animation side in me) with a mixture of circus.
    It's a dream come true!

    I never thought I could ever find people to help me with a show! But now I somehow did! I'm doing my best to make this my masterpiece haha!
    The shy girl with low self-esteem somehow manages to make a theater show. Woah.

    It's pretty scary to tell everyone about it. In the past, everytime I told about an upcoming show it didn't went through. So I'm deadly nervous it happens again. Stupid superstition. :(

    If I have more news I will tell you about it! I can't wait to show you guys my partner! But I have to make her a costume first!

    Always one to say "See, I told you so!!" I am enraptured to say "See, Snoetje, I told you so!!!"

    Yes!! You have a wonderful opportunity, that hopefully, will continue to open new avenues for you.

    Great artwork!

    And, by the by, will you be able to post some video of your show??

    I hope so!!
    Having a video of the show is very important for me, so I will let someone film it, or at least put a camera in there.

    I still feel so lucky someone found me and wants to work with me!

    This is my stage buddy, playing with a diabolo. Also, a costume design I made for her. On the back there will be very big red buttons. :D

    She is the smarter one, but not super serious bossy like a typical ringmaster. More friendly and less serious. That's why the design is a bit different than normal ringmaster costumes. :)

    Photos will follow of course!
    Working on a theater show is so exciting waaaaah!! :D

    Snoetje, I always get excited when I see you've made a new post; I can count on it being an amazing development in the adventures of Snoetje! (And usually some pretty artwork or photos, too.) :) Can't wait to see more!

    Hehe, thanks.
    I'm working so hard on this show. I sometimes even forget to sleep. Haha I'm unstopable! :p
    We have endless ideas and it's going to be very intensive. But I'm sure it will be awesome and a experience to never forget. :D

    Oh my gosh. You know, my partner has circus skills. Which is very very cool. And she teaches me some! And they are so scary even when they're simple! But it's cool to do them, gives me more confidence! I feel this show lets me also fight my fears, which is good because I have incredible willpower now with an awesome goal in mind. :D So the show will also show a grown person! Woaaah! :D
    And I'm still so happy with my stage buddy! Asking her to join was one of the most scary things I ever did! But it's totally worth the effort!!

    Who did the cartoon of your partner? It's awesome! I want one like that.

    Thank you! But I'm not very good with cartoons of existing people. This one worked out pretty well because I know her. But from just pictures it's more difficult.

    Are you better with cartoons of non existing people?

    Yes, as long as it doesn't have to be realistic.

    My partner is not allowed to work with me on the show, but she's all grown up and such. I don't understand. :(

    Now I'm super sad. She was perfect! And I just know it would become a really fun show! I just know. We had an amazing team (me, her and the director) and now it's ruined by someone from outside.

    I hope it will be solved. I really do. I worked so hard for this and I had so much inspiration and I did brave things to come this far.
    I'm not religious, but I wonder what I did wrong to have this bad luck while I try so hard to do good things. What can be wrong with wanting to make lots of people laugh? Sigh. :(

    If we could set up some kind of technological wizardry, perhaps I could perform with you??

    So, it didn't work out. :(
    Now I'm officially looking for a new partner *sigh*. Anyone wants to spend 3 months in Holland? XD

    The bigger the dream, the harder it gets. But I'm SO CLOSE!!! This just can't break apart, please no! No no no no no!! Argh!

    Okay, I didn't find a new partner. So then it was like "what now? No show?" I was too scared to choose for a solo, but the director believes in me and he convinced me to choose for a solo. It's better than just giving up! Now we made up the creative solution of using videos in the show! :D

    You know, the strange thing is, since we chose for a solo I'm super happy and excited! But it's very hard work! I have to work every day the whole day on the show for the upcoming 4 months and do the advertisement (almost) alone too. Biggest challenge in my life!! But also lots of fun!
    We had the first rehearsel day and it was so much fun! The director is very nice to work with! We will use a lot of music in the show and each sketch/scene has its own feeling. It will be a very special show! :D
    I will keep you guys updated!
