The King & I

So here's the word from a friend's perspective:
"Darlene is the 'I'!"

Yup, I'm the "I" in The King & I. Or Mrs. Anna. Or Mrs. Leonowen. Or the schoolteacher.

Community Performance Series (CPS), based at Crane School of Music in Potsdam, hosts a community theater production each summer and this year we do The King & I.

It's a lot of lines for this ol' gal to learn, but I really think I can do it. I'm sure gonna give it my best shot. I tend to have that paradigm. You know, the thought that says, "If I'm going to do this, it deserves my best effort."

So, aside from Seussical adventures, which are deserving my first attentions for now, I will be venturing into the world of Siam in 1862 -- hoop skirts and all!! Can you think of anything more fun?

I can't!
