I just got back from rehearsal for Where’s the Cheesecake?, the play LiFT Theatre Company is presenting tomorrow at Little Falls Cheese Festival. I brought along my Tablet to take some pictures for this post.
The set is quite simple, because it is a radio play. We sit in the chairs, then get up and say our lines into the microphones. It’s actually a little awkward acting that way, but us actors are always up for a challenge.
Here are two of my castmates. Full Disclosure: I told them to act like they were consulting over something in the script. Actors are really good at these posed candid shots.
This is an actual candid shot of a cast member.
I also wanted a shot of our writer and director, so we did another posed candid. Angela Harris wrote the script, and Matt Powers directed. They, as well as the cast, are excellent to work with.
Alas, I did not get a shot of Oscar Stivala, The Man with the Horn. He adds atmosphere and mood with his music. He is also playing later in the day at the Cheese Festival. I hope to stick around long enough to hear him. A number of other musical acts are also featured. You can check out the line-up on the Cheese Festival’s Facebook page.
The Cheese Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Main Street in Little Falls. The play will be in The Shop at 11:30 a.m. Come on out! But in case you miss it, I’ll try to write a blog post and tell you how it was.
