I mean, you all knew I'd dived headlong into the theatre, but now? I'm ALL IN. So, here's the Reader's Digest version. I hung around until they let me join the board at Front Row Centre Players, where I am now the Inventory Director. I get to hang out (and, hopefully, keep order) in our trailer (could be a double wide, y'all) full of the stuff we use to put on our shows. Knee deep in costumes, props, and all the bits and pieces. AND I LOVE IT! I may not know much about the business and art of theatre, but I Know About Crap. I hope I do my fine friends s proud.
I know that I get VERY ATTACHED to people, places, things, and this has proved no different. I love FRC unapologetically, and I will stay loyally put until they figure it's time for me to hit the dusty trail. And what else? I have thrown my hat in the ring to be costume designer for a few shows this season! Magz has held my hand, has mentored me, and has shown me so much love and support. If not for her, I'd still be a Home Economics hero (my young friends, you can ask me what that is later, if they don't offer that in school anymore).
But what do I want MORE THAN ANYTHING?* To act, really to SING in a show. I knew that It would be, and it is, hard to live with my "only act in one show a season" promise. Because life feels so short!!! Because I haven't made it into the last few shows I've auditioned for. Because I'm so AFRAID that time is passing me by. I guess that's why I haven't posted in two years. I am feeling stuck? Lost? I'm not sure. I keep thinking I need to turn my mind around. Be positive!
