I was about to title this one Post Rehearsal Post, but then I thought it might be a Non-Sequitur Thursday, in which case, the title ought not directly reflect the content of the post. Oh the conundrums of the daily blogger!
I just returned from the first rehearsal for A Trivial Murder, the murder mystery we are putting on to benefit Herkimer County Historical Society. It will be Saturday, Nov. 3, 6 p.m. (doors open at 5), at the Ilion Moose Lodge. The cost is $25.00/person. To purchase tickets, stop by the Society, Monday-Friday, 10-4, or send a check in the mail and they’ll send your tickets to you – HCHS, 400 N. Main St., Herkimer, NY 13350. For more information, call 315-866-6413.
I brought my Tablet to take a couple of pictures, but neglected to actually take any. Instead, I offer a picture of a previous murder mystery for the Historical Society.
That was a fun cast, yes, but this one will be great, too!
Before rehearsal, my friend Kim and I went up to the costume rooms at Ilion Little Theatre (ILT) looking for a 1920’s costume for me for the Ritz and Ragtime at Rutger Park fundraiser on Saturday. We and a other members of LiFT (Little Falls Theatre Company) are volunteering and must look the part. I did not want to wear the dress I wore last year (also borrowed from ILT) (and returned); I wanted to wear the dress worn by another character in Rubbed Out at Ruby’s (a murder mystery presented by LiFT last year).
This is what I wore last year; some people thought I looked pretty fine.
I was looking for the black dress on the girl sitting next to me who is NOT strangling me.
However, after looking for a while, I just wanted to find ANYTHING that worked. Eventually I found a black velvet gown that will do. Alas, it does not look like a flapper dress. Maybe I’m a little too old to be a flapper. SAY IT AIN’T SO!!! After rehearsal (which went pretty well), I went home and sought out accessories to make the gown 1920’s ready.
So this is my Non-Sequitur Thursday post. At least I plugged two upcoming local events, and included a couple of pictures. I call that respectable. Happy Thursday, everybody.
Oh crap, I still have to think of a title.
