Nope. NO Way. NOT Gonna Do It and They CAN’T MAKE ME!

Nope. NO Way. NOT Gonna Do It and They CAN’T MAKE ME!

Last Sunday, Mason and I were talking to the director of the musical we were recently in. She wanted to let us know that they’re planning a mid-year production, and wanted to make sure Mason could participate since he’s in two other local productions.

This one will have a circus theme. I can’t remember which book of the Bible it will tie into but it definitely wasn’t Noah’s Ark.

She explained they’d have “circus performers” doing their acts in the wide entryway for people to see as they enter to find their seats for the performance. It will be a another musical and she was obviously very excited about it. The performance will be completely original, both the script and the music. It sounded like fun so I asked her if I can audition as well.

She turned to me, put her hand on my arm, smiled, and said, “Well, actually, yes. We’re going to need a bearded lady…”

The Art and Craft of Writing and Editing

Writing is a constant dialogue between author and reader.

The craft of writing involves an interchange of emotions between an author and a reader. An author creates a story line, conflict, and characters, gives his characters words to speak, and then hands off these materials to a reader. This process results in a constant dialogue between the mental imagery produced by a reader and that proposed by the author.

      HA HA HA HA HA!!! 😉

      So, we were asked to be in ANOTHER production. It’s a religious take on the Willy Wonka story. I’ll be the mother of the kid who’s addicted to TV (except they’ve modernized it and it’s a little girl addicted to the Internet). Each kid has a weakness that they need to overcome to spend more time with the Lord. The good news is…I don’t have to wear a beard for this one!! 😉 Mason was also invited (neither one of us had to audition, which was really nice) and he gets to be Augustus Gloop, complete with melting chocolate all over his face. Since he recently thinned out and grew several inches, we have to stuff his clothes. He is SUPER excited and he’s already mastered the accent. 🙂
