There is something about finishing a theatrical production.  It leaves you with a feeling of loss, excitement, exhaustion, extra time and a feeling of accomplishment – especially when you have achieved what you set out to do.

For the past several weeks, this ensemble has been guided by the hand of a talented director.  Each performer has been given the opportunity to shine somewhere within the script, thanks to two talented playwrights,.  We were surrounded by a fantastic set which felt as though the audience was right there with us in the living room of the Frye family.  There were no egos – only a blend of friendship, helpfulness and camaraderie – a tightly knit mixture of comedic talent and timing and a true fellowship between all.

So now what?

After a full week of rehearsals starting last Saturday, with a four hour time slot and every night until opening night on Thursday  and additional performances on Friday, two on Saturday and yet another on Sunday, it’s time for this old lady to catch up on her rest.  Still there remains a bit of adrenaline to keep me motivated for the next one.

The laughter and tears will disappear for a while.  The laud and honor which comes with a good performance will dwindle.  The characters will be put on the shelf and life goes on.  I’m thankful to have been part of this – of the joy we brought to many hearts – the laughter on stage, from the audience and backstage.  It’s always hard to say goodbye, but the friendships we’ve made will linger on and hopefully we’ll be able to work together again.






As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    There is a kind of “grieving” when a production is over…but I’ll bet it was a truly unforgettable and phenomenal show! ❤ ❤
