The show ended yesterday. Happily, it ended with a bang. We really gave our all and made it a great last show! The cast party was wonderful and we all talked about our favorite moments, and our biggest challenges. We exchanged phone numbers, signed each other's publicity posters, and promised we would stay in touch. It will be easier to stay in touch with some of them than others, because they are involved in activities with the theatre that I'm going to be involved in too, like the script reading committee and the board of directors. I'll see another at ballroom dancing classes when I start doing that, and yet another is probably going to become my regular hairdresser because I trust him completely and I know he will do a fantastic job with my hair! I feel like a few of us really became friends throughout the two months that we have worked on this show, and they are friendships I want to keep.
I made a point not to say goodbye when everyone left the cast party last night. I said "see you later" instead. And I know that will be the case, although we will never all be in the same place at the same time like we were for this show.
At the same time, I'm glad to have some free time again. The Fundraiser is tomorrow, so as soon as that's over, I will be able to relax for a little while. I am looking forward to reading and writing especially, not to mention knitting and spending time with my sister's kids. I've missed them!!!
So I'm dealing with some mixed emotions right now, which is pretty normal for me, even in everyday life! (lol)
I'll post some pictures from the show tonight. I've been holding out because I didn't want anyone who might have come to the show to see what I looked like in the show. Now that it's over, I can show the world! (it's a little scary, so be prepared!)
