A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Oh--And the Big News

It turns out I'm not too old to play the lead after all. Apparently the director of the play thinks I have great stage presence. So I get to play the good-looking young teacher who just blew into a town full of fools. In a world composed of characters entirely devoid of any intelligence, I'm the only one with brain cells.

Casting for type, if you ask me.

I tend to agree with the director's assessment. When I am on a stage, I am definitely present. Quite obviously there.

But there are thousands of lines to memorize! Eeeee!

The director threatened me with "Oh, you'll be helping him with his lines? Would you like to understudy for the role of Sophia?"

Uh. No.

Close your eyes and think of the groupies.

Congratulations! You'll do swell. If it's at all humorous, I once played the narrator in Our Town---the only character alive---with a severe bladder infection in tow.
