I spent my breaks at work studying my lines for Steel Magnolias, the play I am in at Ilion Little Theatre. Production dates are the first two weekends in March. That makes it just a little early for this blog to become All Steel Magnolias All The Time. However, I don’t have much else to write about today and I REALLY don’t want to blather on about how I’m having trouble writing, as I have done too many times in the past.
We had rehearsal last night. You should see how much the set has progressed! Alas, you cannot, because I did not think to bring my Tablet and snap a couple of pictures. We have rehearsal again tonight, so perhaps I could remedy the omission in a future post.
And I just this minute remembered something! I am supposed to have my bio for the program ready by tonight! Oh no! Longtime readers may remember that I have a problem with bios. I think I wrote a blog post about it once. Oh well, I’ll come up with something off the cuff (what, ME? come up with something off the cuff? SAY IT AIN’T SO!).
As I was saying, the set is filling in with set pieces and props. Now we have to learn our lines, so we can drop our scripts and pick up the props. It is just a bit awkward, script and pencil in one hand (to make notes about blocking), prop in the other. Then you drop the prop or lose your place in the script… um, not that everybody does that. Some of my fellow cast-members are most adept. OK, I’m the big klutz in the bunch, as usual.
Well, this post is not amounting to much, is it? I guess there is not a whole lot to report about the play. But I suppose this will have to do on Tired Tuesday, because I have to get ready for rehearsal. I hope I remember to bring my Tablet.
