I can't believe I haven't blogged about this before now, but I recently tried out for a play with the River City Players (Cape Girardeau's theater group) and I got a part in the upcoming show Faith County! I play Faye McFaye, and, for lack of a better term, I play the town tramp haha! Basically I'm a ditsy flirt who recites bad poetry and dreams of getting featured in the National Inquire.
The play is hilarious and I would love for you all to come! The performances will be May 6th and 7th at 7:00 with dinner included, and May 8th (Mothers Day) Matinee at 2pm with dessert. There will be a show only performance on May 12th, and two more dinner shows on May 13th and 14th. The dinner shows cost $30.00 which includes dinner from Port Cape. The Mothers Day show is $20.00 and includes dessert, and the show only performance is $15.00. Tickets will be on sale at Port Cape Restaurant a couple weeks before the show, or you can order them through me.
If you didn't know, I was very involved in Drama in high school and for awhile really felt like I wanted to be an actress when I "grew up." I really feel blessed to have been given a part in this production and am enjoying brushing up on my acting abilities.
I don't want to give away the story too much, but here's a little bit from one of my favorite scenes.
Synopsis: Faye is questioning Delbert about why he doesn't want to marry her. Delbert is.....well, confused.
Delbert: "Faye, marriage is the furthest thing from my mind right now....except, maybe to Lottie."
Faye (me!) "But I've been making plans for US Delbert! My Momma has already made one hundred and fifty four weddin' bells out of styrofoam cups and aluminum foil for the reception!"
Delbert: "Aww come on Faye, hush up!"
Faye: "I've already been down to the K-Mart and picked out our pattern! How dare you lead me on like this!"
Delbert: "Lead you on, what do you mean?"
Faye: "I wouldn't marry you Delbert Fink if you were the last person in Faith County! I never want to see you again!"
Delbert: "Where are you going?"
Faye: "To cancel the reservations I made at Dugey's Motor Court for our Honeymoon! And that jump start you gave me this mornin'.....was the WORST I've EVER HAD! GOODBYE!"
So as you can see, Faith County is kind of a back-woods type of town :) Also, just a side note, Delbert is a mechanic, so that "jump start" could very well be talking about an actual jump start. haha. There's tons of hilarious scenes in this show and I can't wait for you to see it!
