I have been very sporadic about posting lately, and for that I apologize. In my defense, I have no defense. Explanations are tiresome. On with the blog post!
I mentioned recently that LiFT, Little Falls Theatre Company is doing Summer Shakespeare again with Love’s Labour’s Lost (perhaps you read my blog post about it). Auditions are this Saturday, May 14, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Little Falls Community Center, 524 W. Main St., Little Falls, NY. Auditionees (yes, it is “auditionees” not “auditioners;” I googled it) need not prepare anything, which is good news for me, because I cannot memorize a Shakespeare monologue in two days and I do not remember any of my speeches from past plays. A regular monologue I could perhaps make up as I went along, but Shakespeare talk is not easily ad libbed (and if you can do it, I would like to hear it) (added note: my computer is underlining “libbed,” but what else is the past tense of “ad lib”?).
Alas, my friend Kim is out of town. Kim and I got to be such close friends riding back and forth to rehearsals of Much Ado About Nothing, my first Shakespeare experience. Maybe she can get a separate audition.
Any local readers who are the least bit interested in theatre, Shakespeare, community, friends and fun, are highly encouraged to audition. For more information, you can visit LiFT’s Facebook page. See you on the stage!
