Rehearsal and A Lazy Weekend

October 22, 2006 at 9:20 pm 6 comments

Well, so far I’m not “passerby #6”, or “bush number 3 behind the wall”. I’m still in the stinking chorus. My totally non-singing self is attempting to belt out such holiday favorites as When the River Meets the Sea, The Holly and the Ivy and something the director wrote called It’s About Love. They are quite sneaky these theater people. The music director was passing out folders with all the music in them, she quite clearly said “If you won’t be singing, don’t take a folder.” So I didn’t. Then the assistant director brought one to me and said “There are a lot of places where everyone will be on stage, so maybe you better learn the songs even if you don’t sing them.” Two more weekends of singing and then they cast the skits that go inbetween the musical numbers of this variety show. What have I gotten myself into?

No grandgirls this weekend. I thought that would be a good thing, but mostly I piddled and fooled around and finished nothing. Jeesh.

    Do you think we could get an audio of you singing> so we could make up our own minds.

    You can always lip-synch! Maybe they’ll find a better use for you. Or you can bump off one of the non-singing cast. But make sure you do it when it’s too late to replace that person and you’re the only one available. 😉

    We’ve had people lip synch in the church’s cantatas just to beef up the numbers and make it look bigger and better. No one knew, but a few.

    Oh good heavens! What a disappointment for you . . . try and remember that famous line “There are no small parts, only small actors?” Maybe there are no poor singers, only poorly written songs?

    Kat, don’t lip sync! Sing badly and loudly. They will give you a part to get you out of the chorus!

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
