How to Catch a Bunny Rabbit with Nerve Gas

AGH!

I FAILED!

AT LIFE!

Okay, so guys and dolls was tonight, and here's the story.

During the first scene, I enter twice. Both times, I enter from the same place, exit to the same place, am with the same person, and deliver lines to Nathan.

I got the two times confused.

The first time, Adelaide (Maeve) and Nathan (Jeff) are on stage. I enter and say "Nathan, yesterday Mindy sold 12 hundred cheesecake and 15 hundred strudle.

The second time, Sky (Nick) and Nathan (Jeff, again) are on stage. I enter and say "Nathan, we took Adelaide to the drugstore and she said for you to be sure to pick her up and don't be late."

The first time I entered, Adelaide was standing right in front of me, and I said "Nathan, we took Adelaide to the drugstore and she said for you to be sure to pick her up and don't be late."

* smacks self in head *

Benny, an eleven-year-old, manages to cover roughly for me, saying "Wait... no. That was yesterday. Today was the cheesecake thing."

We pulled that off.

Barely.

After this, Benny and I escorted Maeve out as I punched myself in the forehead a few times.

The next time I entered, I knew I couldn't say "We took Adelaide to the drugstore" because it would be obvious I had mixed up my lines, so Benny reccomended "deli". I thought this was smart, but I also decided in my head to change "Adelaide" to "your wife".

We walk on, I deliver my slightly modified line and I walk out.

As I walk out, I realize that the whole point of the show is that Adelaide and Nathan are not yet married. The whole point is that they get married.

I just ruined the whole premise of the show.

I walk into the elevator with Benny and Marie, curl up on the floor, and wonder if I threw myself out the fourth-floor window if would die when I hit the cement.

The fall from the 4th floor wouldn't kill you. The sudden stop at the end might, however.

Abby said...

sam, everyone and anyone who does theater is bound to mess up their lines at some point or anyother in their lives. As other people have said, I'm sure no one noticed.

Oh, and I think I'm going to be able to see it next saturday :-D :-D I'm very excited.

Leah said...

Everyone who did notice it found it extremely amusing. Don't beat yourself up about it or else we'll be forced to take drastic actions (aka we'll be you up about it and make you feel AWFUL! BWAHAHAHAHA!)
