Marni Stories


"Actually, aside from Bess Houdini and The Ficus, listed in the program is the part, "Understudy for the Slave Girl." Mother have mercy, I WANT that part. Being as I have no singing, dancing or acting skills, I think I could do it because she doesn't say a dang word. Other parts listed on the back of the program that I'd like to audition for include:
Mr. Springfield's Costume Assistant. (I mean, would take us at least 3 hours to get him dressed before showtime every day....) and Cast Physician. (I could give it a shot - I figure I'd get to examine him once before I got fired for total incompetence.)"
