Well, rather than whine about how tired I am and that’s why this is going to be a Mental Meanderings Monday, I thought I would open with a picture of the cast of the Tempest, taken after Sunday’s performance. Regular readers know that we just had three performances in four days (Thursday, Saturday and Sunday). Oh, I know, YOUR play ran for ten performances in three days; there’s always someone!
Performances went very well, but I’m sure I’ve mentioned that already. Did I mention how hot it can get for some of us in our costumes? Not the fellow front left, in the shorts and body paint. I think I may hold out for a similar costume if I do Summer Shakespeare next year (which I keep saying I am NOT going to do and for some reason nobody believes me). One thing I keep saying is no pantyhose and only one layer. I suppose it is my fault for not finding a lighter vest, but we all know that the selection in thrift stores only goes so far. Never mind. With only two more performances to go, I am more than capable of sucking it up (but please don’t call me Buttercup).
Having rattled on for over 200 words, I think I’ll close with the other cast photo taken Sunday. The first one we smile, the second was in character.
