I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this sooner, but I am playing the part of Abby Brewster in our community production of “Arsenic and Old Lace”!
It’s actually put on by the high school drama class and being we only have a population of 300 here, and only about 10 high school students, that narrows the margin of students actually wanting to be in the production by, oh say, about half. Hence the need for community members to fill out the rest of the cast.
Anywho. I’m playing the lead and I’m so excited. It’s been a long time since I was on stage but it brings back so many good memories of high school and doing local community theatre in my hometown. I actually lettered in Drama. Yes, I know most people letter in football, cheerleading, baseball, and other sports but at my high school you could actually letter in other extra-curricular activites besides sports. I still have the letter jacket packed away in storage.
Now you all understand why I run around singing broadway show tunes, drunk and sober.
You know what’s even more cool? Howard and Dusty have a part as well. Unfortunately, there’s only one scene where we’re all together on stage and that’s the final one. In any case, it’s going to be a blast.
Now, to find a way to mask my southern accent and not sound like a complete idiot.
