Community theater rocks! My late-great-favorite teacher, Sam Maasz, helped to start the Montello Community Theater, and I wish I still lived in Montello so that I could participate! My dad and sister both starred in this year's production of "The Three Musketeers, All Swash and No Buckle". They both had pretty big parts, and did a great job!
My dad was cast as a drunk Muskateer. Strangely, this is the second year in a row that he's been cast as a drunk! It's definitely not type-casting, since my dad was completely absitinent from alcohol for most of my life. He's loosened up a little now, and will have a beer now and then, but I've definitely never seen him drunk. It was totally hilarious to see him stumbling around the stage. Isaac just about fell out of his chair, he was laughing so hard!
This is my grandma, who usually goes to bed by 7 p.m., but wanted to see the play so bad that she sayed out until a scandalous 10:00! She didn't have her hearing aid with her, though, so I don't know how much she heard. It was visually interesting anyway! Isn't my dad cute? He is wearing lipstick!
My dad is so cool...in order to look the part, he actually grew out his mustache and then shaped it to curl up on the sides, and then shaped his goatee into a Muskateer-esque style. Rumor has it he plans to shave his 'stache after the play is over - and I've never seen him with a naked lip!
