Just when I thought I was going to have to make a fast, foolish post before getting ready for our show tonight, I checked my email and found pictures! My friend Matt took these pictures at last night’s rehearsal. Now I can talk some more about Donate to Murder. This will be great!
Donate to Murder, regular readers may recall, is the murder mystery LiFT, Little Falls Theatre Company, is presenting at the Herkimer Elks Lodge tonight. I really need to be showering and getting ready, but of course blog posts must be made (or else they are not blog posts). So here are the pictures and a few brief comments by me.
This is Renwick Spaulding, a lover of bugs. When I gave him a rolling cockroach I just happened to have (a relic of another murder mystery), he immediately adopted it as his best friend, Edward. Now Edward is my favorite character in the play. Good playwrights are not resistant to script changes.
My husband, Steven, is also featured as Dudley Turnbull, a lover of dogs but hater of dog poo. My character, Miss Phoebe Larkspur, cringes when he mentions “poop” instead of saying the dogs “do their business.” The other lady is Flora Fertenza, a kind of a flower child.
Here is the whole crew: Phoebe Larkspur, Meryl Barrymore, Flora Fertenza, Harold Greene, Dudley Turnbull, and Renwick Spaulding.
And now I have to jump in the shower. Crap, I hope I can remember my lines!
