My life for the foreseeable future is going to be DRAMA! No, I’m not going to be continually having Wrist-to-Forehead whatever day it is (although I suppose it could happen). I mean my life is going to be theatre, Theatre, THEATRE! (Yes, I must spell it with with “re”.) I led with the first sentence for the sake of being, obviously, dramatic. Who could blame me?
First, however, I shall make my weekly Friday Lame Post.
Earlier today I met with a lady from the Morningstar Methodist Church regarding a murder mystery dinner theatre fundraiser they are presenting in conjunction with Ilion Little Theatre. Guess who’s writing and directing? No, I’m not starring as well, although I expect I shall play a small but pivotal role. It is very exciting for me. I haven’t done a murder mystery in a long time, although we did them quite frequently in the North Country during the 1990s.
I shall write more blog posts on that project as I continue to work on it.
Additionally, auditions approach for Leading Ladies, Ilion Little Theatre’s spring production, which I am directing. I must talk with the fellow who promised to build my set and with the lady who agreed to work on costumes. I must pick out scenes for actors to read at auditions. I must come up with a sheet for auditioners to fill out, including contact information, availability, etc etc. And that is only a few of the things I have to think about.
Again, more blog posts will be forthcoming.
I think the first, most important thing I ought to do is to get my act together. Yeah, I know, good luck with that. That would be worth a blog post! In the meantime, happy Friday, everybody.
