Twas the night before opening and all through the theater, not a creature was stirring…wait a minute. This was the last dress rehearsal; everyone in the place was stirring; the lights were shining; the sound was at full volume; and, chaos ensued. There’s no calm moment for anyone, but it’s theater so it’s normal and gets everyone energized.
Before we close our last Writer’s Block blog and end show rehearsals, I wanted to share some of the favorite lines of the cast. You’ll have to see the show, though, to know why they’re favorites – can’t give too much away before opening night.
Conrad: “You could get eaten by a bear.”
Bernie: "Maybe he's not the Conrad we thought he was."
The Torkelsons: “Them.”
Madge: “She was probably really good at it, 'cause they gave her an ‘A’.”
Bernie: "So if we don't smoke it, what do we do with it?”
Summer: "It looks like someone chewed up a whole box of crayola crayons and vomited them all over the place!"
Conrad: "I'm bald!"
Karen: "Isn't Cleveland the same as extinction?"
Bernie: "Oh yeah, I feel great!"
Madge: “Are we gonna do it now? While he's in the privy?”
Ralph: "Yeah, keep writin.”
Bernie: "The pleasure is yours."
Conrad: "WHYYYYYYY would I do that?!?"
Madge: “That's yer idea? Kind of stupid ain't it?”
That’s a wrap for this show. Curtains!
