The REAL team strikes a pose for our latest fundraising play, Meet Me in St. Louis.
This next week is going to be crrrazy!!! We'll be in production week for our fundraising play, so it will be rehearsal every single night for three hours (at least). I plan on being exhausted and stretched to my limit. But it will be worth it, and with two shows next weekend, Saturday night and Sunday evening and a dessert bar for the audience, hopefully we'll raise a lot of funds for our upcoming tour to Australia in May.
This year our play is Meet Me in St. Louis, by Sally Benson. This play is near and dear to my heart because it was our senior class play when I was in high school. Back then I played the part of the scheming yes-man, Mr. Duffy. This time, I'm the director of the play and also play the role of Lon Smith, a father of four spirited daughters and a son. It's a really fun play and I'm really enjoying doing it again. I just hope everybody will be ready by next weekend--the last rehearsal was pretty rough.
These photos were from our photo session for our posters. It was quite a challenge getting period costumes (the play is set at the time of the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, Missouri)--there's not exactly loads of old-timey outfits to be found on Saipan. But we managed, and I think we look pretty fetching!
I'll blog the play once the production is over.
"M" plays the role John Shepherd, sweetheart to one of my "daughters" in the play.
