Well, now that I have posted the pictures (at least the ones that Dad uploaded), I suppose I should finish up talking about the play. We got 3 standing O's. We did the play 3 nights. That is pretty good. The theater was packed and as far as I know, the last night there were no mishaps. Awesomized. Afterwards, there was the cast party.
Now, being the resident geek of the school I have never really gotten invited to a party, so this was a really big thing for me. I got there at about 10:45 and begged my mom to let me stay till 1 AM. She said to call at 12:30 and we would talk. So I go in and this house was SWEET! It had high cielings, finished basement, the works. There is food out and the original Wizard of Oz is on and then in the finished basement they were showing the video from dress rehearsal. So the high school cast of 34 is crammed into the Oldham's basement and I was one of the lucky ones that got the couch. There were 4 of us crammed on a 2-3 person couch. It was me, the assistant stage manager, Russel (the tinman), and Bruce (the lion). So, I'm pumped with adrenaline so I don't think I'm tired. At about 11:30 the adrenaline wears off and I find myself nodding off, and realize that I start leaning towards Bruce. So my (as my health teacher called it) "Oh-Crap" reflex kicks in and I think "Ok, any second now, he's gonna turn to me and say 'Dude, personal space.'." So I called home to avoid an awkward situation.
After Dad laughed at me for almost falling asleep at a party, he came and got me. I went home and crashed.
I'm bummed that the play is over. But exhaustion is keeping me sane.
