It is a later than usual Wrist to Forehead Sunday post, and I really do face a dilemma as I contemplate the upcoming week. That is, should this blog become All Steel Magnolias All The Time for the next two weeks, or should I first indulge in a week of All Rubbed Out at Ruby’s All The Time or do a weird hybrid such as All Steel Ruby All The Time?
We just got home from another rehearsal for Rubbed Out at Ruby’s, the interactive murder mystery to be presented by LiFT Theatre Company at the Overlook Mansion in Little Falls, NY. I can report that it is looking good, especially considering the costumes people wore or brought. I think it will be a great deal of fun. I only hope I can remember everything. It’s not my lines I’m worried about. I don’t have that many lines; it’s mostly improvised. But I don’t want to forget a prop or costume piece. I’m so scatterbrained these days!
I have not thought much about Steel Magnolias today; that is, the next production at Ilion Little Theatre, to be presented the first two weekends in March. This means I must do some serious looking at lines tomorrow. I hope I don’t forget to bring my script to work with me (see earlier line about being scatterbrained these days).
And what about the other murder mysteries I’m working on? Well, I’ll bring my notebook to work with me, too. Write, study lines, I can do it all, why not? And if the stress gets to me, I guess I’ll just have a Wrist to Forehead Monday, too. I hope everybody is having a nice end of their weekend.
