....
I can't believe what I'm considering doing.

I haven't done anything like this since -- maybe -- 1991-1992 or so.

But I am *definitely* being pulled.

Like it would a) be fun and b) drag me out of this slump I've been in and c) give my kids a chance to see a side of me they're TOTALLY unfamiliar and d) dust off some skills I haven't used in decades....

Still...

Ulp...

I'm actually thinking of auditioning for a local community theater's production of "Fiddler on the Roof."

I think I'm world-weary enough (and gray enough) at this period in my life to be a somewhat-convincing Tevye.

...

IF I can get my knees to stop knocking long enough to audition.

Oy.

They ARE also looking for girls to play Tevye's daughters. DW#2 has expressed interest in getting involved in theater......

Singing, yes. And I'm fairly sure I can pull that off. It's not opera.

Acting. Doable, I guess. Not sure if a cradle Catholic can pull off a devout Jew, especially a cradle Catholic with such blatant Irish looks as mine. Maybe a beard.....

But I'm most concerned about the dancing. Sure, Tevye's not supposed to be w/the Bolshoi, but I'm not exactly fleet-of-foot, either.

If ya make it, I'll even come see you perform. I don't think I live that far from you.

Doesn't the guy just shake his belly for the most part? (dancing)
BAHAHAHAHAH!!!

Hey, waitaminute... I may have killed my own chances to get cast in this role.

Quick. Someone hand me some Cadbury eggs.

Sunrise, sunset ... swiftly flow the years ... one season following another - and you will forever regret it if you don't at least try, Dan!

GO FOR IT!!!
