Yesterday I went to a rehearsal for the play I was unexpectedly asked to take part in: Where’s the Cheesecake? by Angela Harris.
Angela Harris, a resident of Little Falls, NY, also wrote Strike Story, the incredibly well-researched reader’s theatre play which gave LiFT, Little Falls Theatre Company, its start. I got to participate in that production when a cast member could not make certain performances. Perhaps you read a few of my blog posts about it. Harris has also written several short plays about the ongoing adventures of Mac Blac, “Little Falls’ only professional problem solver.” I saw one of the plays three years ago, at the Little Falls Cheese Festival. I probably wrote a blog post about that too. At least, I hope I did. When I was asked to take a part in the latest adventure, I jumped at the chance!
This episode is done as a radio play. We stand up and speak into microphones. Sound effects of doors closing and chairs moving help set the scene. Oscar Stivala, as The Man with the Horn adds atmosphere. I loves me some Oscar Stivala!
The play takes place right before the Little Falls Cheese Festival and, obviously, involves a cheesecake. More than that I will not say, because I do not want to give away any salient plot points. I will say it is very mysterious and a lot of fun.
Where’s the Cheesecake? will be presented on Saturday, July 14 at 11:30 a.m. at The Shop, 590 E. Main St., Little Falls, as part of the Little Falls Cheese Festival. The Cheese Festival is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Main Street. Come buy some cheese and see a play!
