The Perfume Counter schedule

We are now less than 2 weeks out from my theatrical debut. I continue to be equally excited and terrified. Being off-book (lines memorized) makes it much easier for me act. Without fumbling with a script i can use my body as i am accustomed to and knowing the words means that they flow out more naturally with the proper em-PHA-sis on the right syl-AH-ble. I only have about 24 lines so it wasn't too hard to get them down, though there are 2 sentences that are very similar and i routinely mix them up in my head; oh, and i actually memorized the wrong word in one line so i had to struggle to replace moonlight with midnight in my head. The Perfume Counter, as i've said before, is a One Act and it looks like it will be about 34 minutes long. The production team is planning other things- dancing, vignettes, something, who knows- to round out the event to an hour, but i have little knowledge about what it will actually end up becoming. Since this is sponsored by the Theater Club -Barnstormers- at CCBC, Catonsville Campus all of the performances will be FREE to the public. I would love to see some friendly faces at any of the three performances in The Barn Theatre on the Catonsville Campus: Thursday Sep 23 at 8pm Saturday Sep 25 at 8pm Sunday Matinees Sep 26 at 2pm Come one and all. Bring your friends. Bring your family. Bring relative strangers. Join me as i continue to do at least one new thing a month - growing, stretching and possibly making a complete fool of myself. Come point and laugh. Just come.

You're a natural performer, and a delightful person to work with. As your stage manager I have total confidence in your debut!
