I had a real fangirl moment on the weekend. I saw Ian Stenlake perform live on stage. An honest-to-goodness dream come true.
For those not in the know, Ian Stenlake is a fabulous Australian actor and singer. One of the best. No, scratch that. THE best. I did say I was a fan.

For a very long time I've wanted to see Ian perform live on stage. A few years ago (2010) Ian and his wife Rachel Beck came to my little home town of Emerald to perform at our Christmas carols (our church minister has friends in high places!). Amazing. Made my year - and this was the year I'd had my first trip to Europe! What can I say, the man has an amazing voice.

Harvest Rain is putting on a production of Cats in July (500+ cast members and the amazing Marina Pryor) and Spamalot in October (where I will fangirl-squeal over Simon Gallaher and Jon English of Pirates fame). My flights are booked (well, almost - need the funds in my account first). I will be there with bells on, supporting the Queensland theatre talent, and having a blast.
Like I said, I'm a fan. So shoot me :)
