I know I said my blog was to be about my writing and i haven’t been doing much of it lately, except for this poem, but it is also never too late to try to start an acting career.  I am a member of Primus Theater which is part of our senior center downtown.  All of the plays we put on are performed by members of  the center and we are all over 50.  Winifred O’Reilly, who’s been at it for 20 years,  was our director again.   This year her production was highlights of the plays she directed in the 20 year period, and it may have been her last.  Some of the plays the cast did were written by two of her sons.

I acted  in scenes from two Neil Simon plays, Prisoner of 2nd Avenue and Odd Couple (for women).  We performed for five days, Wednesday through Sunday, but began rehearsing in October and had one to two rehearsals a week, plus our group from Odd Couple went over lines on our own after the official rehearsals.  It was a lot of work and I am still feeling tired and sleeping late.  There is also a let down when you aren’t seeing the people every week.   Three of us sing in the chorus at the senior center though and we will still be seeing each other every week, except on breaks between sessions.  This is what I looked like in Prisoner of 2nd Avenue.  It was a lot of fun and I received many compliments on my performances, especially in that play.
