A Few Fabulous Photos

A truly fabulous cast!

This post is going to be heavy on pictures, but I think that will be acceptable, because they are fabulous pictures!  These were taken by the Herkimer County Historical Society of Fabulous and Fatal, the murder mystery we put on as a benefit last Friday (perhaps you read a few of my blog posts about it).  Things did not go as rehearsed, because one actor decided at the last minute not to participate.  But that is the excitement of live theatre!  We made it work.  The audience was entertained, and we had fun.

Steve and I: the couple that plays together, stays together!

 

Who says a drag queen can’t have a beard? I think he’s pretty!

 

For that matter, who says a drag queen can’t be a woman!

 

And here is a true Drama Queen!

 

“J’accuse!”

I end with a most dramatic shot.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  I certainly hope that is true, because I have not attained my usual 200 words. I’m going to call it OK for a Tired Tuesday.

 

And Another Thing About That Play…

I thought of that headline yesterday.  Then I did not write a blog post yet today.

Tonight is dress rehearsal.  I don’t like the shoes I found for my character, but the rest of my costume is very nice.  We have two ladies working very hard to make everybody’s costume right. I think they are doing a marvelous job.

I’m sorry, I’m a little distracted right now.  I got mandated for overtime at work so am pressed for time.  I have about an hour to finish this, get in the shower, fix my hair, put in my contacts, get all my stuff together, and get to rehearsal.  I looked over my lines once today.  Perhaps twice would be better.  Oh dear.

On the brighter side, it is Non-Sequitur Thursday during All Roxy All The Time Week.  What could be better than a little disjointed babbling about the play?  Oh, I know, a lot of things could be better.  Only I did not write any of them earlier and I can’t seem to write them right now.

Our rehearsal last night went pretty good.  The dialogue in one of my scenes got messed up.  The other actor in the scene and I had not noticed, but the stage manager pointed it out to us.  After the scene we were both still a little puzzled about what went wrong.  Imagine my chagrin earlier today as I was looking over my lines and realized it was MY screw-up.  Everybody thinks I am so good at learning lines!  I’m mortified!

Then again, that is the excitement of live theatre.  Somebody might screw up.  It might be me.

Right now I must get in the shower. Otherwise, even if I do know all my lines, I still might stink up the stage.  Happy Thursday, everyone.
