Theatre Is My Life!

I believe I have time for a quick Throwback Thursday post before I have to leave for rehearsal. My problem is, since I am about to go to rehearsal, I feel distinctly inclined to throw back to past LiFT (Little Falls Theatre Company) productions. I also feel it is too early for this blog to become All Love’s Labour’s Lost All The Time. I’m just so excited to be doing a Shakespeare play again!

Full disclosure: I may not have time to do a blog post. I keep getting distracted by the Mom re-run on TV. I’m so shallow!

No, it’s not the balcony scene from Hamlet!

At least this is not a picture I shared on the last Throwback Thursday Post. It is a rehearsal shot from The Tempest in 2017.

Another Full Disclosure: My laptop (dining-room-tabletop) is acting up. This post may be short. I am quite certain a short post is better than no post at all. For one reason, my reader has less time to get bored.

And this is a whole different show!

The above is from a Cheese Play by Angela Harris. Regular readers know how I love all things cheesy. Ahem, these plays are not cheesy in the same sense as the cheesy horror movies I so adore.

And here’s something weird. I am over 200 words. Good thing, because this computer is driving me batty! Thank you for tuning in, and I hope to see you all on Lame Post Friday.

It Was Not a Cheesy Play

The reason I went to Little Falls, NY at 9:30 yesterday morning (as referenced in my earlier post) was that I was director of Where’s the Cheese Monger? the play written by Little Falls resident Angela Harris.  Our venue was the Little Falls Community Center.

I was a little worried about getting an audience despite the crowds outside at the festival.   I suggested one of us put on the cheese hat that was part of the set and stand outside the door inviting folks in.  I was willing to do it myself, but Angela kindly did the honors.  I don’t know how effective it was, but people liked it.  Some asked for pictures.

I couldn’t resist taking a picture as well.

I am not adept at taking selfies.

After nicely posing, Angela said we must take a selfie.  Or is it an usie?  Ussie?

I was standing in the back.

The two performances went well, despite some technical glitches.  We had near Standing Room Only crowds.

Mac Blac on the job.

Here is another full cast shot, including The Man with the Music, a new and welcome addition to the ensemble.

It was a fun experience with nice people, another successful theatrical production by LiFT, the Little Falls Theatre Company.
