Tempe Little Theatre, Take 2

September 20, 2008

Hey, guess what?  I’m in a show!

Well, that was unexpected!  I mean, I must admit there was a part of me that thought maybe, just maybe I’d still hear – the director said he wanted his cast in place by Saturday, so if they just wanted me for the chorus, perhaps I’d still hear – and I guess that was the case!   From our phone conversation, I kinda got the feeling that the director thought, “Aw, here’s this cute mom who just wants to be in a show – let’s let her have a little fun.”  And I suppose that’s pretty spot-on.

Oh – the role, you ask?

Um, Ralph.

Seems there was a dearth of men, so I get to take on the minor role of Ralph, except, get this – the director is thinking of calling me “Rosie.” Ha!  Too perfect.  I’ll also be part of the chorus, and I’ll play a serving wench in the play-within-the-play part of the show.  I have a long history of serving wenchery, so that part should come easily.

Wow.  So all my bitching and moaning all week was for naught.  I got cast – my first try!  I’m going to be in a show!

Strangely, I have some mixed feelings.  I mean, my life is seriously disrupted – our quiet routine of playing, visiting Nana, dinner and bathtime is down the drain as of Monday evening, when rehearsals start.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m very excited about being in a show after all these years – just the idea of standing in the wings on stage gives me chills – but I also quite enjoy the happy routine of our family.

This must be where I start to learn the answer to the question, “So is this still my dream anyway?”

But in the meantime – yip yip yippee!
