Larceny and Old Lace

Friday, October 16, 2009

Wednesday night, I played hockey and we tied 1-1 with a really good team we played in the summer. I was impressed with my own play, and my teammates really rocked! We have three new players this winter and they are all really good. It is exciting because my team doesn't tend to score a lot of goals, but these three might help in that department.

Thursday night, I went to see Larceny and Old Lace, a funny production about two old ladies who rob casinos for a living and think nothing of it! With a cast of 16 on a small stage and a 'front' door that opens and closes about 40 times, it was a hectic, madcap show put on by the community theatre of a small town near here. It was a good show.

My stepfather and mom were both in the play. This is my mom's third time in a show. In the first, she was one of 4 main characters, she was on stage for most of the show, and she kissed a man on stage! You can bet I was squirming in my seat during that scene. In the second show, my Aunt Janet was one of the main characters, and my mom played a detective. It was a smaller role than the show before. This time, she only has a few lines, but they are memorable, and this time she gets her bum patted by yet another man! Mom! You need to prepare me for these things! I was very nearly traumatized for life when I saw that!

One of the bigger characters in the show was a scary escaped convict named Mordred, played very well by my stepfather, Mike. The costume alone was great, and his acting was very good. I heard someone behind me exclaim that he had a good voice. He was a natural up there. I can assure you he has no tattoos (that I know of), or piercings, and he definitely doesn't have a mohawk or usually wear a dog collar or a leather vest with a skull and crossbones on it! No, really!

Great show Mom and Mike and enjoy the rest of the run!
