I said “darn” because it is a family friendly event.
What a week I am having! Rehearsals Monday and Wednesday, a preview performance Thursday, and the Ilion Doodah Parade on Friday! And anybody who is saying huffily, “I see you had Tuesday off. I had something to do EVERY night this week, even Sunday!” can just be quiet. I bet there is somebody else who is even busier than you, only they are not writing a blog post about it.
Where was I? Ah yes, stressing over the Ilion Doodah Parade tomorrow. I am marching with other m embers of the Ilion Little Theatre Club (ILT). Of course most of my summer is being taken up with LiFT Theatre Company of Little Falls, but I must make time for ILT once in a while. For one reason, my good friend Kim is in charge of our participation in the parade. I’m always ready to join Kim for a Mohawk Valley adventure!
My big problem is a familiar one for me. What, oh WHAT shall I wear? Last year I dressed as a pirate. Some folks wore jeans and a t-shirt from a show. Not all of our shows have t-shirts made, but, for example, the Herkimer County Historical Society gave the whole cast of Roxy t-shirts. I, of course, was in Roxy (perhaps you read a few of my blog posts about it; that was in 2015). Well, I’m sure wearing a theatre t-shirt is fine for some people, but I like to be a little more distinctive. OK, I just have to put n a show. I thought you knew that about me.
So I could be a pirate again. Or I could wear the outfit I’m working on for tonight’s preview performance. A co-worker suggested I wear the outfit I wore for Rubbed Out at Ruby’s. There are many possibilities.
Right now, however, I can’t think about it. I have to get ready for my Preview Performance. I wonder if I will have time to write a blog post about it before the Doodah Parade tomorrow.
