As some of you know, and many undoubtedly do not, I was in my first play ever last March, a stage version of the Ed Wood epic Plan 9 from Outer Space. Well, I went to the museum in Seattle and discovered an actual UFO from the actual movie.
And I saw lots of musical instruments, and a few ukuleles amongst them even.
I have mentioned this before on my blog, but I am going to talk about it again. Because I’m damn excited, so you can deal with it.
Last night we had our first tech rehearsal for Plan 9, the live theatre production. Wednesday, as in tomorrow yikes, is our preview show for special donors. Then, the show runs Thursday through Saturday night. If you’re in or near Columbia, SC, you should make an effort to attend. It is insanely weird, funny, and fun.
This will be my acting debut. The stage is not really my thing, I am definitely more of a film and TV person. It’s so strange to me, because in multicam TV you’d get the script at the end of the week and then perform it live in front of a studio audience later that week. Rehearsing for months is crazy!
So, I’ve been rehearsing for months, people had better come watch me. I don’t ever do anything for months. And I’m the makeup artist. That’s a lot of work, I tell you, someone had better appreciate it. Have some photos.
In the land of insanely cool things that are happening that I am a part of, there is going to be a live stage production of Plan 9 from Outer Space, one of the best worst movies ever made. AND YOU CAN HELP!
They are trying to raise funds for it on Kickstarter. They’ve raised about $1500 so far, but would like to get double that to be able to make it as awesome as possible and pay the people who are participating.
Even more amusing is the fact that I’m going to be in it. Which is great, considering my theatre experience in its entirety is “I’ve seen some plays”. See my scene at 28:10!
