As one of nine in our acting troupe, I am relearning my lines, fixing up my costumes and working daily not to be overwhelmed by the preparation it takes to take a show on the road.  I’m also in charge of all the finances, Quick Books, deposits to the bank, thank you notes and other admin stuff.  Plus I’m in charge of all the costumes.  I just finished this morning a 22 page Excel workbook of each of the characters of the play.  Each character has a costume description sheet detailing the costume, who owns it and who has custody of it now.  My hope is by next week, I’ll have asked each of the cast members for the details of their costumes, what they need in addition to what they got. 

I’ve got a headache just keeping track of all this.  I am realizing that what Thea and I are doing is creating and living a template for creating troupes of actors that will hopefully be located all over the country.  I’m moving to Massachusetts at the end of october and from then I will start creating a troupe out east to do what we are doing out west.  So every form we make up, every contact, every contract will be duplicated again for our east coast troupes.  it’s very exciting.

About shirleyriga

I'm a 58 y/o woman discovering I can act and sing via performing We Did It For You. It has been such fun and invigorating to be on stage speaking the words these women worked so hard to express. Aside from the fun, I am feeling very moved to have the privilege of standing in the place where Susan B. Anthony stood with her words or Mary Wolstonecraft cited her words from The Vindication of the Rights of Women. Also, I am so proud to be citing Sandra Day O'Connor's words from her speech. These women have contributed so much to our history and so few people know about it. It is quite an honor to be a part of this historical play.
