I am feeling a combination of the satisfaction from participating in a well-received performance and post-play letdown. Mostly satisfaction right now, the letdown will kick in more fully tomorrow. You’ll have that. After all, if we feared letdown, we would never experience anything good. That is as philosophical as I will get today.
Members of Ilion Little Theatre performed He Laughed Himself to Death at Morning Star Methodist Church this evening, while they served a delicious roast pork dinner. Cast members got fed after the performance, for which I was extremely grateful. I was also grateful that the cast did a superb job, and the audience seemed to really enjoy it. One of the best aspects of live theatre is the presence of the audience. In these murder mysteries, we enjoy direct interaction and that is wonderful fun. I can’t wait to do it again.
And I get to do it again soon! I will alleviate my post-play letdown by jumping right into working on another murder mystery, which I have mentioned several times already: Who Shot JS? This one will benefit the Herkimer County Historical Society and be performed at the Herkimer Elks Lodge April 22. I will have a lot more to say about that one soon.
In the meantime, I am tired. Solving theatrical murders is hard work! I did not do a whole heck of a lot earlier today, because I was recruiting my energies. Perhaps I will do something blogworthy tomorrow. Or it will be another Wrist to Forehead Sunday. I don’t care; the applause is still ringing in my years and I am feeling satisfied from the roast pork. And the church wants us to do another murder mystery next year. Goody!
