Sharing the stage

Your host, Sparkles, shared the stage at First Avenue with a group of coworkers in the agency’s annual spoof on the 70’s Gong Show.

It’s an annual agency tradition to put this show on. Everyone who started during the year must participate in an act of some sort. My group decided on the YMCA.

While on stage I imagined myself as Prince, as this was the very stage he filmed Purple Rain on. In fact, in his early days he performed here all the time. So there I was, acting the princ(ess) amongst a group of village people.

This is us backstage, right before we’re due to go onstage.
