in the theater

I love the stuffy dressing room, the panic of getting 1940s dresses over your elaborate 1940s hairstyles. I love complaining about putting sponge rollers in your hair for the fiftieth time in a week. I love getting your eye plucked out by eyeliner and caking on the stage makeup. Everything is so wired and magical - cast members are hugging and whooping in excitement. We squeal when the audience bursts into laughter or gives us a few whistles and cheers.

We ate a whole bowl of pineapple in 15 minutes. We make constant runs to the gas station for "dinner" and try our best not to eat lipstick. Our feet fall off, and we don't mind. We cheer over everything (especially free refreshments).

We bawl during the smashing end complete with a patriotic veteran's tribute. And we scream for each of our "family" as they grin and take a bow.

In an hour, I'm packing my bag, blowing my sponge curlers, and heading back there for another treatment of makeup, butterflies in my stomach, hugs, and sore joints. I can't wait for it all to happen again.

I love it.

Stay tuned for some pictures! Remember THIS?


  1. Needless to say, the eye makeup that hasn't come off, combined with the dark circles under my eyes makes me look very close to some sort of monster.

  2. Just so you know, Bethany...I think you look like a very 1940s monster! LOL

    My eye makeup didn't come off either!!
    But I'm being really picky! OUR SHOW WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!

    BTW...just be thankful you weren't the last getting your hair rolled. Mom finished mine at 12:30 AM..and I sorta fell asleep when she was doing that!!

    This next show tonight will be just as spectacular if not more!!

  3. you're my favorite sort of monster. a kinda pretty monster tought :P

  5. The play was great!But you were almost unrecognizable with all the makeup:D

  6. I don't think many people recognized me ;) With the fake eyelashes and lipstick and all. lol!

    And I'll agree with Marieanne...you are a pretty cute monster :)
