Yesterday, I received an email from one of my fellow actors from The Odd Couple. He organizes a comedy/magic show for an animal safari park in the area. He sent out a mass email looking for anyone interested in spending the summer at the park performing in the show… 7 days a week/ 7 times a day… $80 a day and the possibility of housing being arranged. I seriously considered it but I am already committed to Miracles at the end of May which surely would conflict with rehearsals and the opening of the park.
I even got an email from another recipient who thought that I would be interested. Interested, definitely… so why not tell the original sender that I was interested. So I sent an email explaining my situation and that, unfortunately, I would be unable to involve myself. I was not got going to bail! I did however ask him to keep me in mind next year. To which he replied:
You would have been perfect for this one!!! I have gotten a few candadites (how it appeared in th email) we will see, thanks for the reply.
WOW! What a compliment! Not looking back on it but what an opportunity… to perform in front of an even broader audience from who knows where… statewide, countrywide, or dare I say… worldwide?
