Shocking title, huh? Yeah. I still can’t believe I auditioned for musical theater. Even more astonishing, I was actually cast in Shrek, The Musical. Yep. For realz. I will be portraying Tweedle Dee in the Fairy Tale Ensemble of Journey Theater Arts Group community theater production; a character who doesn’t smile and whose frown is accentuated with make-up.
So, you know, I’m basically playing myself.
Wow. I really should have learned to read music.
The what of the what, now?
Oh, yeah. I have that email somewhere...
Check. Got it.

Why are they taking notes?!?
Thank the Lord for random dance classes throughout life. At least I know how to do a “box step” and a “kick-ball-change”.

As thrilled as I am to be in the cast, I am missing my friends not in the show. Where Emma handles her conflicting feelings pretty well, I have “survivor’s guilt” when I think about those cut. I know it’s showbiz - it’s just a tough fact of life to swallow.
"Do one thing every day that scares you." My favorite quote from long ago FLOTUS Eleanor Roosevelt. I guess I have this covered for the next 2 months.
