The Theater

Every day I head to my daughter's place of business, otherwise known as Candace's Shapes and Colors, where she slathers my head with goop and gets started on creating a 1930's hairdo. Sporting a headful of sculpted finger waves, I head out for another performance of The Sound of Music. "You play a nun. So what's with the fancy do?" Well, for one short scene I get to sneak out of the abbey, don a gorgeous chiffon gown, and hobnob with the richest and fanciest of them. To top off the special "evening out" I enjoy dancing the waltz and the foxtrot. Then it's back to the abbey with wimples, veils, and robes -- and Gregorian chants with Latin texts. Such dual living has earned some of us the name of "naughty nuns". We are all glad for the chance to wear something a bit more delightful than black and white heavy robes. And finger waves!

The show is fun -- totally. Have I ever told you that I love this stuff! Do you know that I even love rehearsing? Really -- I do! What's wrong with us theater aficionados? Is there too much in us that never outgrew dress up and make believe? Oh, well. I suppose we may not get answers to such questions. But this much I know -- I have a never ending supply of energy when it comes to singing, dancing, and acting. Three more shows and then it will be on to the next theater project. Hmmmm. Do I see a pattern developing?

In the meantime, the home is buzzing along with painting projects and the usual chores. What I really need to do next is plan the school year. "I must keep track of such important things," I remind myself!

Off to the salon I go! Maybe I will see you tonight!

I loved spotting you amongst the pious nuns -and later in the regal ballroom. just beautiful!

Life is like that sometimes: we're called to change clothes and don a different hat.(I've even seen you pray and dance at the same time!)

i love rehearsing too...even more than giving the show at times. i can happily rehearse all day long. it's too bad that in community theater they hardly ever do that. ;)

you were great. like i said last night, the nuns sounded incredible.

I cannot imagine leaving my children evening after evening to "sing, dance, and act." They must miss you.
