My Earnest Life

Once again I have let over a week go by without posting..... Sigh.... I can't seem to find the time to do everything!

As for my number one baby right now? Well, its *Earnest, thanks for asking.

I thought that this was just going to be a simple show-----my last one of the season. Yeah, right.

Then the poop hit the fan. It started with not being able to find a main character that pushed the rehearsal schedule back almost three weeks, then having another few actors keep changing their minds on when they could rehearse, which lost us another week and a half. Then, to top things off, my lead girl decided to bow out two and a half weeks before the show opened. All this on top of having to do costuming, work on props, block, direct, oversee the set build, do the set decorating, publicity, tickets and maintain the website and blog, etc. (And yes, I found a really great lead guy and a really fantastic actress to take my lead girls part...even better than the original one!)

Well-----once again I have gotten through it, and am now just praying for more ticket sales. Wish you could all be here to see it----it would really boost my sales!



Algernon and Jack have it out.

Gwendolen and Cecily are sure that they are both engaged to Earnest.

Jack tries to make up to Gwendolen.....
.....And Algernon declares his love for Cecily.

Miss Prism gives Cecily some advice.

Lady Bracknell tries to show Gwendolen the error of her ways.

And......that is my *Earnest life.

I just don't know how you do it all! You are amazing! Hope things settle down a bit, and you know if I were out there, I would be to every show!

talk about stress!! What excuse did the lead give for backing out so close to performance time??? That is pretty lame on her part :-(

fingers crossed for big ticket sales. You know I would be there in a heartbeat were it not for oh, about 6 states between us.

I don't know how you deal with that kind of stress!!!

On a side note, it's too bad I don't live closer. I'd have come and tried out! ILOOOVE that play. And I acted in my former life. Ahhh....the good old days.
