So...I’ve really been putting off writing this entry, could you tell? I feel like once I’ve finished writing it, this crazy wonderful period of my life will be closed. People will no longer feel the same energy they once felt when bursting out into random songs about paradoxes and pirates. The secrets of the show that once connected us have all been revealed, and what’s left? A recording of some college’s performance of The Pirates of Penzance, and a few good memories.
Well, I guess I’d better share those with you then--
This play was a blasty blast if I've ever experienced one. I’ve never felt more strong or powerful or beautiful in my life; which I think is kind of remarkable considering I was a 47-year old nurse-pirate wench.
I made some new friends,
got to wear the most awesome costume ever
(complete with extra boobs and two extra butt pads
which people squeezed for good luck),
had my mother come visit and see me perform,
sang and performed for a full audience in a lead role
(check that off my bucketlist!!),
became a better singer,
and laughed the entire time.
What a great looking bunch of people :)
