I Never Told You...

I have been so busy that I haven't mentioned that I am actually doing a show!! I am the understudy to a multi-role part in a show called The Emperor Is Naked? I'm also Stage Manager. :) The Show is a "zany political satire designed to 'wake the Sheeple' in us all." It's also quite a musical! The goal of Deuce Theatre, in general, is to break through the "4th wall" and have the audience become active participants in the show. They are the first place I auditioned with, thanks to the heads up from Ruth! Now, though I am not in the minds of the directors, I have a pretty good idea from having read the script and being a part of it, that they want to "shock and awe" us (very comically) out of our modern day-media led-unaware-of -what's-REALLY- going-on-around-us-stupor. They're not your everyday main stream theatre company, for sure. Think I fit in? :) You will actually get to vote on how the show will end, (but only if you're there!) and afterward we hope to have a "talk back" with the audience, gathering thoughts and opinions and really hoping to "wake up" in everyone a desire to, ah-hem, BE the change they want to see in the world. Of course, I could be wrong about the intent of the directors, but this is just what I have gathered so far. Click the link in the beginning of this entry (or any of the other conveniently located links) and you'll go to Deuce Theatre's Web page and you can pick which dates you'll be coming to see my, I mean the, show. :) Tickets are on sale now and there are a lot of you I haven't seen in a while! You know we bought an extra bed for YOU to have your own space when you come visit. And anyone who is already here...no excuses! Don't let anyone pull the wool over your eyes! Flock on over to the North Charleston Cultural and Civic Center Complex and prepare to Wake Up.

(hmmm? was that too much of a public relations post? you think? and what are the references to "sheeple" and wool and flock about? well, maybe it's cause i want you to come see my show! So go get your tickets now for The Emperor is Naked?)

Wow, Tracee! Quite a coup! I remember stage-managing a couple plays in high school and really enjoying it. And maybe you'll get a chance to fill in for the part you're understudying!

The description of the play reminds me a little bit of improv, which I enjoy watching and which my kids are now learning a bit of.

I'll be cheering you on from afar, much I'd love to come watch you!

I will come. Even if you weren't going to be in it I'd still say it sounds really interesting.
