WOW! I learned at my weekly voice lesson that the local community theatre’s production of A Christmas Story already has two dates sold out! Not sure if a show has had sold out dates two months ahead in this area, but this is the first I know of. K will be playing the role of Ralphie’s mother and her little man will be playing a little boy… no lines but he is already being instructed to develop the character to give himself some business on stage.
Now that I am five months out from my weekend gig, I have begun to plow through my books to find new things (or old things that are worth digging out) to not let my list become a lesson in tedium. I dug out a favorite that I have never before been able to get because of range… (guess which part gave me fits). Two octave range from a low A-flat to a floating high A-flat. Poor K was commenting from the keyboard on the 5 flat key to the 4 (or is it 5) sharp key. I probable should also pick some unfamiliar pieces just to take me out of my comfort zone. I also visited an old friend that will be a part of the evening. I really do not want to add too much to the program but if it goes from 45 minutes to 120 minutes before February… NAH! No one wants to see me on stage THAT long 😉
