Hello internet

“A Life of Galileo” had an almost sold out run. With a large crew and an even larger cast, Theatre St. Thomas pulled off a difficult piece of theatre. This couldn't have been done without the hard work of everyone involved...but this post is for one in particular.

On closing night, Theatre St. Thomas holds a mock awards ceremony. Everyone involved gets a little gag certificate and we sit around and eat pizza. Eventually, everyone heads out to a cast party as per normal. This has been the same in every production I have ever been in with the company. This time, the company gave a standing ovation to one of its most important members, Wei Qing Tan.

Wei Qing Tan. Black Box Theatre. St. Thomas Uni.

Wei Qing Tan. Black Box Theatre. St. Thomas Uni.

This was her last TST show. I can attest to how much work she has put into the last 4 years. Literally blood, sweat and tears. She has selflessly devoted all her free time to the Black Box Theatre, creating tracking sheets, organizing storage rooms, and to training her stage crew. I cannot believe how fast 4 years fly by.

I wish her the best in her future endeavours, and I hope to work with her again in the future. I know whatever company hires her next will have one hell of a stage manager on their hands. We all love you.
