Couple of different play pictures

Just received these in the mail and I thought I'd share as they're better than the ones originally posted Feels like it was so long ago, I was totally lost last weekend as it was the first one home in a month . I didn't quite know what to do with myself as I kept feeling like I should be somewhere! :lol:

OK, when do you consider it a problem?

I think I'm in trouble, roflol. I have made friends with several sales associates in different stores and now when there's a huge sale, they call me up and ask about what I might be interested in. I had 2 call me up last week about sale items and they held things in the back room for me till I could get there to try them on . I think it's so sweet of them to do that but a girl can get into some serious trouble that way . I did get 3 pair of Cache jeans for 75% off which in itself is a maj

The Finale!

Well Saturday night was our final performance and it was great. I couldn't help but to feel excited knowing that it would be the best yet as everyone was ready to give it their all. At the same time there is also that feeling of sadness, that we would not be together anymore, everything was coming to an end. We have spent so many hours together and even though we're exhausted, we ran on pure adrenaline and motivated eachother with a renewed excitement each performance. To say this was an awe

Weekend #2 done!

All I can say is I'm so exhausted but thrilled at the same time. I can not believe how fast this is going by, just finished another 3 performances, only 2 more left coming up this Friday and Saturday. I've updated my last entry with pictures, you can see it Here if you've missed it . Saturday night will be our last performance and I have decided to host the cast/wrap party which will take place after we clean up the popcorn after the show. In other words it will start about midnight and go

Show Update!

Well 3 of 8 performances are done already, I'm surprised how fast it's going and yet so glad that we have a few very much needed days off . I love this experience but am totally exhausted, probably due to all the adrenalin we build up and expend each night. Friday's show was an extremly small audience, almost disappointing in a way but last night we sold the show out including a few extra chairs that they decided to add at the last minute in one of the ailses. It was amazing as you draw so m

Opening Night!

Well last night was the unofficial opening night, with tonight being the official. Difference is last night was a free performance for seniors and tonight will be a paying audience. We had about 60 show up and everything was great! It was amazing to actually be able to perform what we had been rehearsing for so many nights. Everyone was so psyched and ready for this, we just fed off of eachother's energy. I can't believe that I wasn't even the slightest bit nervous during the show. I am lo

First Rehearsal on the actual Set

This will be a short entry as I have to leave shortly for our first Dress Rehearsal, Yay!!!! Last night was our first time on the actual stage using lighting, curtains, everything but costumes. I just had to share what I thought was a funny moment: Them: Susan you need to go into the light Me: No, I don't want to! lol Them: But you have to go into the light Me: But I'm blinded by it Them: That's right then, that's how it's supposed to be, you must go into the light! Me: N

Set Build, Take 2

Okay so today's episode of set building/tech practice ended early but was still productive. What we did today was decided on who was going to be taking on or off what from the stage as well as who was going to be closing and reopening the curtains when. I've taken a couple of more shots of the stage so here is what the set will essentially look like

Building The Set

Today was a long & exhausting but fun day. We all met at the storage building at 10am to help load the truck with the items needed to build the set as well as furnishings like a desk, chairs, tables, etc. After the truck was loaded we all went to the Conservation League which is where our production is being held to build the set. It's amazing how an empty open room will be transformed into a theater complete with stage, lighting, curtain and all. Here are some shots I took with my camer

Pictures, Well A Couple Of Official Unofficial

Okay, here are some bad pictures of the cast of the play. These were taken by the director and we were paying attention more to the photographer instead, but you get the idea of the cast here. Well our last week of rehearsals start Monday with the following Monday through Wednesday being full dress rehearsals followed by an unofficial performance for the seniors on Thursday the 4th. It has really snuck up quickly. We have convinced the director to let us play 2 songs and just sing the

Another Play Update

Well it's been a week of full rehearsals and we've been officially off book all week, meaning no reading the lines from the script . I am amazed how well everything is going, things are getting cleaned up and timing is going great. This is really a lot of fun and I'm glad I made up my mind to do this, it's a great group to work with. Nick, the director has now given us girls 4 or 5 songs to learn to sing and play , not gonna happen! I've got one almost down, if I can master a second, well

It's Good To Be Back In A Routine......

I just have to say how wonderful it feels to get back into a "normal" routine. I have made it to the gym 3 days in a row now. It's amazing how long it takes to build up strength and stamina but losing it happens so quickly. I was a little frustrated the first day back which was Sunday as while I was on the elliptical, my heart rate was climbing and getting too high despite the fact that I didn't feel like I was working that hard. I listened to the monitor and just stood where I should be as

Hooray! No More Stitches!

Well finally it came, no more stitches! I went yesterday morning to have them removed and I'll tell you it couldn't have come quick enough. On Wednesday when I was out and about it seemed my bandage was slipping a bit. I didn't think much of it until I was in the middle of things on Thursday. I realized that I was feeling some discomfort but decided to wait since I'd be going in Friday morning. I was correct and it has really irritated my suture line but all will be fine, just a little unc

Monday's Rehearsal & Publicity Shoot

Well what can I say about tonight other then it was awesome! They took our head shots first and then we ran to get dressed real quick. It turns out the get-up I put together will end up being my costume with an embelishment of tinsel on the hems, and Leslie the costumer is looking for a black petticoat for me. So my costume will be black and red and decorated with silver. I had a red boa too and the other girls are in green/black and white/red and a multi color print, so we're all differ

Wednesday Night's Rehearsal

Well last night was a good rehearsal, went from 7 till almost 10. We went over 3 different scenes and made some minor adjustments. It's really something to see how it's all pulling together and everyone really seems to be getting into their characters now. I found out that on Monday, it will be a full cast rehearsal and someone will be there to take publicity photos as well as cast head shots . What this means is we all have to pull together some type of costume and be dressed for the photo

Just A Quick Update

Well I've been feeling pretty good although I've been going a little stir crazy, not used to being restricted but so be it . I am allowed to walk on the ball of my foot, just not put any weight on the heel and I can walk as much as I can tolerate, ok, he doesn't know me very well, I did escape yesterday and today for a bit, walked the whole mall yesterday , don't tell anyone, lol. I've found it very hard sleeping at night and I think it's because I'm not expending any energy but last ni

Twas The Night Before Surgery, Lol.

Well I found out I need to be there at 12:30pm , hmm was really hoping for first thing in the morning as I am not allowed anything by mouth after midnight but I'll have time to lounge around in the morning waiting around grrr. I have everything done at home that needed to be done, more or less so now I'm just waiting. This is going to be a long night but nowhere as long as my morning will be Morning Edit: OK, it's now 10:16 and I'm going stir crazy as I don't know what to do with mys

Play Update

Well I went in for another blocking rehearsal Monday night, I am having so much fun with this. It is going to be extremely differcult to keep a straight face during this play . I don't have to worry about much more now till early April as thats when the actual rehearsals will begin so I won't have much more to add for a couple of weeks, which is good as I won't have to worry about missing much after my surgery.

Happy First Day Of Spring!

At least thats what the calendar says . When I left this morning it was cold windy and snowy, so much for spring Currently the temp is about 26F or -4C but the sun is out and the snow gone. I am still surprised we've not had a huge snowfall this winter. I feel like it's waiting out there, lurking and going to hit us when we least expect it. I can't wait to feel the warmth of the summer sun and at this time of year I start to get impatient as I'm so weary of the cold, drab weather. At le

Pre-op Visit Today

Well I went to the Doctors today for my pre-op visit, . He asks "so are you ready" and of course I start to laugh and ask "are you ready" . He said he's looking forward to it as it's a different surgery then what he commonly gets to do, it's not unfamiliar just not the same daily routine. So I was a good girl, got my blood drawn at the lab, have my pain perscription to fill which I'll do this weekend and now I just have to get my call from the surgi-center to find out what time next Thurs

Thought It Was Time To Give An Update On The Play

Well on Monday evening, I went to meet the cast of the play. We read through the entire thing and I'll have to say that I'm really starting to look forward to this, it will be quite funny . Now as for me, as of Monday night, I had zero in the way of lines, lol. All I knew was that I'd be playing a saloon girl and that things will come in time. I had to attend a blocking rehersal last night for the first and last scenes. I now have a name and several lines. My name is Tinsel , will have

Hold On To Your Grocery Shopping Cart!

I am not a fan of grocery shopping but I usually go on a Sunday to do my weekly shopping. I needed to pick up lots of "odd things" this time such as spices and such. You know the kind of items you'd not normally buy more then a couple times a year and are never in the same location as you found them last time . Our local store here is forever rearranging things and even their own employees are never really sure where things were relocated. I was just about done with my shopping when I reme

The Audition........

I went to the audition last night for the play. There were 7 of us there auditioning and 3 people to listen to us read, one being the director. I have never done this before and I felt a little out of place as I was the only first timer there . I also found out after I was the only one looking at the script for the first time as the others had known about this audition for at least a week if not longer and had received copies ahead of time . I had no clue before Saturday night that it w

Another Crazy Venture For Me

Well many of you who know me know that I am very community oriented and involved in a community service club. Back in the Fall we had a couple of people from our local theater group come to speak at one of our dinner meetings. They had some of us participate in an improv type skit and since, Dick has been trying to get me to go to an audition . I missed the last one in December as I was in London and the play opened this weekend. I had gone with several members of my club and sure enough, I

Shopping For Bargains, One Of My Fav Things Lol.

Well yesterday after I helped someone figure out their brand new lap top (loading different programs and stuff) I was just down the road from the mall so I decided to stop on in to see what kind of "Sales" were actually going on. I was amazed to see that JC Penney had multiple rounders full of clothing marked down to $4.77 an item , I had a good time going through them. I found a pretty blouse, 2 skirts, a sweater thats designed like a blazer (originally priced at $72) and 3 lingerie items f
