The Odd Couple--Female Version
Back in December, I finally got up enough courage to try out for a part in a play, and I got one! Rehearsals for The Odd Couple, Female Version, with the Town and Gown Theater in Stillwater, began January 3rd. Today, we are only 5 rehearsals away from opening night and I have butterflies the size of vultures in my stomach! Am I REALLY going to DO this? I can't believe how quickly it's gone by.
I have to admit, the biggest reason behind this adventure is that piano contest coming up on February 12th that I've mentioned before. I had such a fear of playing for people, besides my family, that I thought maybe doing a play would help me overcome it. I was right....I've been so busy with play practice that I'm not even WORRIED about the piano contest! I have my music memorized and almost polished to perfection. As for the play, I am having the best time! It's been years since I've done this....and I had forgotten how much fun it is to get wrapped up in another world and pretend to be someone else. :) The play really is the thing!
I am a working mother of two teens, spoiled dachshund and an effervescent Golden Retriever. AND I have a husband who is addicted to fishing. I love to cook, scrapbook, read, watch movies and hang out with my family and my friends. This blog is a place for me to store the extra stuff in my head!
