No Book Review Today

Posted by mcm0704 on September 1, 2013 |

Since I thoroughly messed up my blogging schedule by posting a review on Friday, I thought I would just skip it for today. Remember, I said “sometimes a review on Sunday.” (smile) Instead, I want to let you know that this coming Wednesday I have a guest coming, the “Retro” guy, Jeremy Hawkins, who is […]

A to Z Challenge – Z is for…..

Posted by mcm0704 on April 30, 2013 |

Shhhh. I’m taking a nap. Can’t you see the zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzs scrolling across the screen? I think all of us who participated in the month-long challenge are ready for a nap. It has been a lot of fun to be part of this, but for those of us who don’t normally post every day, it definitely […]

A to Z Challenge – Y is for Yo-Yo

Posted by mcm0704 on April 29, 2013 |

Not the wooden toy on a string, although people are much more familiar with the toy than a yo-yo in theatre. A theatrical yo-yo is a device that moves a Gobo to give the effect of movement on stage that is part of the set design. Okay, this was another one of those  huh? moments, […]

A to Z Challenge – X is for a Cute Children’s Book

Posted by mcm0704 on April 27, 2013 |

Most of us doing the A to Z blog Challenge have a few letters we wish would leave the alphabet; q, x, and z being the three that can be the most challenging. A children’s author, Marvin Mayer, has attempted to help us out with his picture book, The Day That X Ran Away.   […]

A to Z Challnge – W is for Where?

Posted by mcm0704 on April 26, 2013 |

As in, “where is my computer?” My PC started making a lot of noise yesterday,  right when I was about to get started on my 1000 words for the day on my new book. Isn’t that always the way? The noise, as I explained to my son who is a computer techie, not a theatre […]

A to Z Challenge – V is for Vamp

Posted by mcm0704 on April 25, 2013 |

I  wasn’t sure what I would find for the letter V that would connect to my theatre theme, unless I went with video. But, of course, video is not part of live theatre, unless you have someone come and tape your performance and put it on DVDs. Which we do sometimes, so that could have […]

Memories – Sweet Memories

Posted by mcm0704 on April 24, 2013 |

For the A to Z Challenge my theatrical word for today is understudy, of which we have none in our little theatrical troupe. It’s awfully hard to perform on stage when you are sick, and I always worry that one of our cast members will come down with something awful on opening night. So far […]

A to Z Challenge – T is for Techie

Posted by mcm0704 on April 23, 2013 |

While what the actors do on stage is vital to the success of a show, what goes on behind the scenes is just as important. Professional theatres have technical crews that handle lights, sound, and any special effects. Community theatres don’t often have the luxury of an entire technical crew, and at our theatre that […]

A to Z Challenge – S is for STOP

Posted by mcm0704 on April 22, 2013 |

 In honor of Earth Day, I am switching from my theatre theme to write about something that is of great environmental importance. Those of you who have read my blog for some time know that I have written frequently about the XL Keystone Pipeline and all the reasons it is bad for our country. Even […]

A to Z Challenge – R is for Radio, Rain Box, Redhead and Run

Posted by mcm0704 on April 20, 2013 |

I had so much fun yesterday checking out all the pages at Theatrecrafts, I thought I would go back again and see what they had to offer for the letter “r”. There were a lot more entries than for “q”, so I picked just a few to mention here. In theatre terminology a RADIO MIC […]
