Act 1, Scene 3

 

While Trevor is the thespian in the family, once in a while I get a part. A ninety year old local woman has been producing plays in town for years now. She writes the scripts, illustrates the characters, and directs. The plays really do come together after 3 months of casting and rehearsals. In the past I have held minor parts tap dancing. That’s all I know. I am not an actress. The latest installment had me memorizing 14 lines and dancing a solo. The lines were a first. I played Flossie Phoney, a member of the Phoney family. I read my lines with gusto. It was a melodrama and I managed to earn a few laughs during my speaking parts. The man who played my husband is a very gifted performer, singer, member of a band. Years ago while still living here, my son, Trevor, made some appearances in Janey’s plays. This latest production was a bit of a stretch for me. It was a blast! It’s kind of scary because I don’t know how much longer this playwright will be around. It’s been a pleasure serving these little community productions. Each and every act and scene.
