So, yes, I thought, "Why not try out for a play, you've always wanted to." So, I went online and looked up community theatre troupes in my area. I prayed really hard that something suitable would come up. I don't think there could have been anything more suitable than Alice in Wonderland. I mean I used to go around elementary school with the book under my arm, I made my mother make me the dress from the 1985 Alice movies, and I had my dad film my rendition of the story.
Dragonfly theatre invited me to come try out and at first I was offered the part of the White Queen (totally sweet!), but at some point during the week after the audition I got an email that I never saw telling me that although I was a little OLD (and I'm guessing too Latina Looking), I would be playing Alice. Way cool. Pressure. I'm on stage all the time.
The play in itself is only 40 minutes long and for kiddies, but that's just been making it less stressful.
If you're near Dedham, MA you should come!
This sketch is for Fr. John Gerth (mostly widely known because of LifeTeen). He is doing college ministry down in Florida and needed something catchy but meaningful, etc, etc, as mascot for the community. The headphones being plugged into La Bible is not my idea, I borrowed it from my friend Ellie's facebook profile pic. The Pelican is an ancient symbol of the church (I was going to try a fish character as well, but you know I liked this one so there).
Random thumbnail I did.
