About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

Overture, Curtain, Lights…

This is it, we’ll hit the heights.

And oh, what heights we’ll hit!

On with the show, this is it!

(Please tell me I’m not the only one who remembers the old Bugs Bunny theme…)

Anyway, I’ve been a bit absent lately, being so busy with the show. So, yes, we opened this past Friday […]

If You’re Curious…

And don’t follow me on Twitter, I’ll mention it here, too.

I got the call last night – I was asked to play Nancy in “Play It Again Sam” at Laurel Mill Playhouse in October. 😀 She’s the ex-wife of the main character, and appears in flashbacks and fantasy scenes (No, Hugeness and Kiwanji, not […]

Theatre People Are Strange

OK, not shocking news, I know. 😀

Anyway, remember this? Kris decided that after the show, he was just going to shave his head totally and start fresh. Somehow, this evolved into doing it AT the cast party, and letting everyone take a turn with the clippers. Once we started, Rich decided he was up […]

Opening Night

Thank you all for the good wishes – the show went FANTASTICALLY well last night. The audience was great – responsive, energetic, exactly what the cast needed for the first time in front of people. I’m still floating! I forgot my camera last night, but I’m going to try to bring it tonight and get […]


So, yes, it’s opening night tonight, and I am bouncing off the walls, I’m so excited. But I made this for dinner last Saturday, with grand plans to blog about it on Sunday, but we spent SO much time at the theatre the next couple of days that I just got the pictures off my […]

Quick Update

Dress rehearsals have gone REALLY well the last two nights. We’re short one and a half actors tonight – our Lucas and Kenny both have finals, so Kenny may be late, and Lucas is probably not going to make it at all – so we’re doing a less heavy-duty runthrough before we open TOMORROW!!!

We’ve […]

I’m Still Alive.

I think.

It’s been a very long couple of days. We spent all day Sunday (literally – 10am to 10:30pm) at the theatre, building the set, painting, etc., etc. Yesterday, we headed back over at 5:30-ish to do some touch-up painting and get the furniture in place, plus do a full run-through of the show. […]

Later, I Was a Hippie.

And let me tell you, THAT thrilled my mother. She’s the original anti-hippie. She has made the statement on more than one occasion that everything wrong with this country can be traced to the hippies. I’m sure she wonders sometimes how she ended up with me as a daughter. 😀

So, yeah. August of 1997. […]

Grease is the Word!

And also one of the best shows ever. I love the movie, and getting to play Rizzo back in August 1996 was one of the great dream-come-true moments for me. So, now I’m going to force that moment on you. 😀

Rizzo’s reprise of “Greased Lightning”, originally done by Rosie O’Donnell in the revival:

Back When I Was a Tramp…

OK, not really, although my mother did ask me once or twice why I always seemed to play the trampy roles. She didn’t totally understand that they were more FUN.

This was the second show I ever did at the Academy Theatre in Meadville, PA. Great little community theatre, zero budget, but a good crew […]
