My Evening out

This evening was a play performance at Kingsley Junior High School. I cannot recall the actual title, and I returned my program to the table to be used tomorrow evening.  The main theme was how to get modern students to be interested in Shakespeare.

At times when I had a TA Sub job in the building, I had heard announcements about play practice, but I also received a personal invitation from Caitlin, a girl at church.  I’ve known her since she was a babe in my arms in the Nursery, so of course I wrote the time and Admission fee in my planner book.  She has a wonderful scene where she gets to wear a long-blonde-hair wig.

It was also good to see so many of the staff of the building in a context other than classroom.  The guy running the sound board owns the music store where youngest son rents a room to give guitar lessons.
All this brings about a wonderful “small town” feel.  I guess I should know bunches of folks, we’ve lived together in this house almost 27 years.

I got 2 offers for a ride home, but the evening is lovely, the sidewalks still clear, I had my walking stick.  It felt good to move again after sitting on those uncomfortable chairs of the cafeteria.

I will ask for prayers for whoever was in the car accident at the corner of Locust and Main. I heard the sirens during the curtain call, and could see the flashing lights when I crossed College Avenue.
A guy in a neck brace loaded into ambulance, and a tow truck already on scene. Somebody must not have come to a full stop and looking before turning right. Carrunnch 🙁

If you live near Normal, go hand over $4 and see a bunch of junior high kids doing something good.

And be careful out there.  A body is fragile skin and bones.

here’s the blurb blatantly copied from the school website Come out to support the Drama Club, the Stage Fighters, with their performances of “Shakespeare Unplugged” at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, February 19, and at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 20 in the KJHS cafeteria.  Tickets are $2 for students and $4 for the general public.  A portion of ticket sales will be donated to American Red Crass/Haiti.  You won’t want to miss their second performance of the year, because the first one in the fall was outstanding!

    What a great line…sorry but I don’t live anywhere near normal so I guess I can’t make it. I live near bizarre, strange, and unusual.
