Quote of the Day: Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. ~ Cecil Beaton
Introducing the cast of Coffee Shop Confessions, my first full-length play. We will be performing it at the Coco Moon in downtown Brainerd on March 2 & 3, at 6:30 p.m. These adorable people all said Yes to my script and Yes to my request to be in the show. We started rehearsals this week. And, YES, I was giddy. I have a terrible head cold, which kept me from bouncing off the ceiling, but I was still extremely excited. And, they’re all wonderful. Here’s the List:
Yep, that’s my name as one of the characters. I asked several people who would have been great in the role of Aubrey. They considered it, but the timing wasn’t right for any of them. So, I guess it’s meant to be that I take a role. Aubrey is the best choice for me. She’s a hair-stylist, single, looking for Mr. Wonderful, online and otherwise. She’s a bit outspoken and cares deeply for her friends. I played a beauty shop owner once before in a community theatre production of Steel Magnolias. I was Truvy. It’s my biggest role so far, and I loved it. Now, I get to act again.
My hair-stylist, Aubrey, inspired the role, so I told her to make me look like a trendy stylist. Aren’t the purple highlights fun?
So, we’re off and running. We rehearsed the songs tonight, and I had a blast. Each step of the process is a thrill for me. My dream is becoming a reality. Thank you to the cast for bringing these characters to life.
Go. Create. Inspire!
