final show

Once Upon a Theatre's last performance of the Spring, 2010 season was today. I was "Honest lawman, Sheriff Fearless!".
Final performance of "Dirty Work at Clean Water Creek" presented to 4th- and 5th-graders at Navajo Elementary School here in Albuquerque.

Key learning: 4th- and 5th-grade audiences are DELIGHTFUL!
... heck, even the mid-school audiences - 6th- thru 8th-grade - were appreciative... tho' way too cool to "Boo, Hiss", and "Applaud, Cheer"! - as required by melodrama!

This was my first PAYING acting gig.
24 shows.
4th- thru 8th-grade.

The point? Introducing school kids to LIVE THEATER!
There are worse goals in this world.
