A little known fact about me:
I’m a push over.
Now, one might not realize this because I’m a well-documented grump who doesn’t like people and can be a general miser most of the time. But if I like you a lot and you ask me to do something (even if my schedule is BALLS-CRAZY!) then I will work some time management magic and make sure I do it for you.
And this, my friends, is how I ended up doing Props and Set Decoration for the upcoming Morpheus Theatre production of “The Pirates of Penzance” (which is also at the same time as “Young Frankenstein” and “Shrek”). Oy.
Now I know this confirms my status as a masochist. But in reading the show’s libretto that T sent during the weekend (sneaky, T, very sneaky!), it doesn’t look like it will be very onerous. Little to no fabrication (which always takes the most work) and if I find myself a props assistant (which I will need for both PoP and YF, methinks), it should be manageable. I hope.
Plus, I’m not going to lie. A large percentage of my reason for wanting to work on it is because of the 1982 film achievement, “The Pirate Movie“. One of my favourite musical films of all time – it even ranks up there with “The Wizard of Oz“.
Yes, its true.
