I went to see a local theater production this past Saturday night and it was fantastic. It was written by a local scribe and produced and acted by local residents.
It seemed somewhat surreal to be back in a theater because I had not been to one since Opus Nostrum burned back in February and we performed our play at the local high school auditorium.
One thing I noticed was that my acting on the stage days –and helping as a stage hand — are probably over. It was just too dark to see and I kept wondering how the actors and stage hands could come out on the stage and even walk around without any light while they set everything up for the scene!
Anyway the play was great. The food was good and I look forward to attending many more plays in the future. What made it especially fun was that we sort of got to be part of the play because two of the main characters came down and interacted with the audience. Moi’ was the first one they spoke to, and I decided to partake in a conversation with them.
I don’t know if it surprised them or not, but they handled it like real troopers, and I had a blast chatting with them. Frankie, don’t forget — call me.
