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!

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 of enthusiastic, loyal volunteers.  This was our production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”, in August 1995.  I played Mrs. Potiphar, as you will see:

The next August, we did “Gypsy”.  As far as I’m concerned, one of the best musicals ever written.  Great story, great characters, great music.  I had the AWESOME fortune of playing Miss Mazeppa.  For those who don’t know the show, Mazeppa is one of the three strippers who counsel the soon-to-be Gypsy Rose Lee about how to make your act memorable.

And no, I didn’t actually play the trumpet.  There was a guy in the wings who was playing a real one.  🙂
