So I took Claire, DW#2, to the audition for that local community theater production of "Fiddler on the Roof," running this summer.

She was really cute. Very excited. Had practiced her song ("A Whole New World" from Aladdin) and wore her dance togs.

I didn't get to watch her audition, as we were separated early on and didn't catch up w/each other until later in the evening.

She made the chorus. Which will be a great introduction to her for this kind of thing. It's her first book-musical. She's done recital-type shows in the past through her dance studio, but never anything with a story arc.

First read-through is next Monday.

...

And me?

Well....

I'm in it too.

Playing some guy named Tevye!

:D

First read-through is a week from tonight.

The calendar is going to be an absolute juggle. I'll have to step away from dog class for a while. Wes will miss his pals, but we'll be back after July.

Stopped shaving this morning. Tevye needs a beard.

And get this: Director has asked me already if I'd mind a costume that included some padding. HAH! How ironic is that??

I second BucksMom's comment.

Now, for me you have to give me specifics of the show. When, Where, etc. so I can come see you & DW#2 perform.

Okay.... now you are just taking being a smart ass to the extreme!!!!

I am dead serious about wanting to come see you perform. You've always blown off the LabFests as Susans, so I figure if I want to meet Dweck I am gonna have to go to his neck of the woods!

I can find Collegeville, PA... it ain't too hard I tell you.

If you won't tell us, I bet I'd find it by "googling" it!

I can just hear the theatre "insider" conversations going on between the two of you every night after rehearsal. Stuff the rest of the fam won't get, but that's the beauty of insider conversations, isn't it.

"He'll NEVER be off book in time!"
"Wouldn't matter if he was or not! He can't project!"
"Isn't her accent the worst?"
"WHAT accent?!?"
"Dad, wanna go over lines tonight?"
"I'd better. Gotta lotta lines to learn."

DELISH! :)
