Great news, folks! Sure, there are other things I should blog about and touch upon, things that have happened since last I posted, but this simply could not wait!! I have just been cast as Gwendolyn in 'The Importance of Being Earnest'. While that's awesome, the best part of all? My Mom has been cast as Lady Bracknell. I will get to share the stage with her for the first time in my life!!
Being able to do this with my Mother is the best news in the world. I love acting because of her - I grew up watching her on stage, I have vivid memories of going to see her plays and following her around costume shops. And now we get to do something together? It's about time.
I am beYOND excited. PG Players is putting on the show and I thought it would be fun to do and wanted to audition...then I realized that there was a part for my Mother. I called her immediately and told her that she had to do this show with me - we had to go for it. We went to the audition and she was flawless - of course she was, do you know who she is?? We held our breath until we got the call and found out were were cast. YAY!! Oh man, I can hardly wait. Ooh! And the guy playing Jack? My dearest Jeff who played my love interest in 'And Then There Were None'. He is so marvy, I'm thrilled.
