As some of you (or at least the people who know me in real life) know, I am currently working on a community show called Monster in the Closet. It’s aimed at kids, but it’s still a pretty cute show. For those of you who I know personally, we run for the last two weekends in February, with school shows! Come see it!
Anyways, I’m having a lot of fun with the show. My character, Brianna, aka Brain, is the know-it-all who invents a monster tracker and takes way too many DNA samples. And she’s the biggest nerd you will ever meet. Kind of like me, only ten times smarter. For instance, here’s one of her lines…
“We currently have more obligatory responsibilities than the application of vegetable remedies for beautification and depilatory purposes!”
Yup, that’s Brain for ya.
I’ve been taking some pictures of the going-ons during rehearsals, and I decided it would be nice to post them on here! We haven’t moved into the theater, so the set is kind of nonexistant. So are the costumes. But, you do get to see the lovely actors! Of course, all the faces have been conviently blacked out… Privacy reasons, you know? I do have the original pictures as well, so if you’re in one of them and don’t care if I post your face, just leave a comment and I’ll post the original instead. But until I get permission, I’m leaving everyone’s faces censored.
Our lovely director, Mr. [censored]! Right now we’re getting notes.
Murray the closet Monster apparently likes the dream queen’s leg.
The dream queen making sure her assistant “puts that in her memoirs”. She’s quite an air-headed queen.
Some of the little girls with all the muffins that were brought in that day. The good thing about Saturday morning rehearsals is that we get free food!
Somebody is not a happy camper!
Me playing around with my friend’s prop nail file. Her character is a bit of a diva, so she gets all sorts of beauty supplies. I kind of look like I just smelled something really bad here.
I promise to keep you guys posted, especially when we move into the theater. Here’s to hoping we’ll be more believable than this guy:
