Here is a rare post-rehearsal post, because I do not have to go to work tomorrow, so I do not feel I should hurry to bed (I don’t think that’s a run-on sentence, but I am too lazy to diagram it and see). I spent the day at work assuring myself I felt Less Crappy. Yes, I used capitals. I do that sometimes when I am telling myself things. Don’t you? If not, I recommend you try it. It sometimes has an impact.
It is probably clear by now that I have not much to say but am merely posting because I can, and to keep from being two posts behind. If I make two posts tomorrow, a feat well within the realm of possibility, I shall be caught up. Blogwise, anyways. As far as my life goes, no promises.
Regular readers may remember that I am in rehearsals for Morning’s at Seven at Ilion Little Theatre. It is a charming play first presented in 1938. The plot concerns four sisters, three of whom live right next door to each other. I grew up with three sisters (um, four girls, counting me), so I feel I can understand the characters. Of course, it is not an exact parallel, because I also have a brother, which the sisters in the play do not. Also, in the play, the youngest sister is the maiden aunt, who lives with one of the sisters and her husband. Also, one of the sisters has a 40-year-old son, who has been engaged for five years and just can’t seem to commit.
I don’t think I am describing the play very well. It is actually very funny, touching and sweet. I totally recommend local readers come and see it.
Performances are April 26, 27, and May 3 and 4 at 7:30 p.m., and April 28 and May 5 at 2 p.m., at Ilion Little Theatre, 13 Remington Ave, Ilion. For more information or for reservations, you can all 315-894-3203, or go to ilionlittletheatre.org.
