Well, I Did Do Something
Nothing horsey today. I went to school to deliver a DVD to the performing arts teacher and found myself spending a lot more time there than I'd anticipated.
The department is going to be performing Shakespeare's a Comedy of Errors this year. The students and teacher wanted me to see the set. It recreates a town with all kinds of doors and windows through which actors can both perform and enter/exit. As I recall from the last time I saw the play, it's a real laugh riot with mistaken identities and crazy entrances and exits where people just miss each other, so the timing has to be perfect.
The department did A Midsummer Night's Dream last year and it was one of the best productions of the play I have ever seen and I've seen that one many times. I am really looking forward to this show.
Which leads me to the rather long prop and "needs" list the production has. In my previous theater experience, I spent a great deal of time seeking out and making props and stage pieces, so I have plenty of experience. I found a bunch of things already useful here at my house and when I go to the saddle/feed store on Wednesday to shop the sale, I will go to the wonderful "used item" store in the same lot. I haven't been in there in a while, so it will be a ton of fun to look for props and items the theater can use. It's just the kind of shopping mission I love!
It was supposed to warm up today, but it never quite did. The sun popped in and out a few times, but mostly out. While nothing actually stopped me from riding or working the horses, my own "tired of being cold" gene kicked in and I just couldn't bring myself to go out.
But, since I count the trip to school as something accomplished, it will do for the day.
