      One of the characters in CALENDAR GIRLS has a line that she delivers a few times throughout the play: “I did it!” They are times of true accomplishment; she has ventured onto roads she had never traveled on before and never imagined she could. For various reasons, they are roads that appear daunting and foreign and untravelable. But travel them she does.

      thA plethora of concerts, a superabundance but not an overabundance, a fullness, a feast. The Spring Concert presented by community music lovers has arrived featuring singers of all ages from second graders to at least 80-plus. All enhanced by the best accompanists in the world, and a half dozen wonderful directors, and some fine percussion, and all the supportive families and organizations and schools. How fortunate we are!!

      8888I am not one of the Calendar Girls. In fact, my character Marie, president of the Knapeley Chapter of the Women’s Institute, is absolutely scandalized by the decision of six members to pose nude for an “Alternative” WI calendar with the goal of raising real money to fund a comfortable new sofa for the family waiting room at the rural Skipton hospital where Annie, played by Michelle Lockwood, has spent many tortuous hours while her husband John, played by Thomas Putnam, has undergone treatment for leukemia.

      It certainly has been an intriguing last few months. I will try to recall, but it has been a blur. We started rehearsing for Johnny Cash “Ring of Fire” at the end of January and also at this time Hamilton-Gibson had auditions for “Blithe Spirit.” I auditioned for “Blithe Spirit” not necessarily thinking about the implications of doing two shows so close together. I received the part of Charles Condomine in “Blithe Spirit” and the rehearsals started immediately all the while rehearsing for “Ring of Fire”. There were a few nights of overlap leaving from one rehearsal and straight to another, to quote Madame Arcati, “my brain was fairly seething.” There were many wonderful things that came from this experience; from developing two characters, to the relationships formed during this period of time, and for the opportunity to further develop friendships with people I already knew.
