Valley Light Opera's production of HMS Pinafore closed this weekend. I had so much fun working on this show and it hasn't quite sunk in that its over. My friend Phyllis sent me this after we finished working on a show together and it is as applicable now as it was then:
No two shows are alike in the making.

Each show is living a piece of your life in a small unreal world with its own character and integrity; its own set of memorable experiences and incredible happenings. You begin to love and adapt to its strangeness. Dreams harden into substance. Values seen come into focus. You wish it would never end. But the show does end. The dream world vanishes like mist before a rising sun; part of you vanishes with it. And back you land in the real world with a thud - tired, uneasy, jittery, difficult to get along with. There is only one cure. A new show. A new, small unreal world; new visions, experiences, incredible happenings. Again you love it, adapt to it, wish it would never end.

But end it does. Another part of you vanishes.

This is show business.

I always felt a little strange after the WHS senior class plays ended (well, the two I was in anyway)...seemed so odd that such a large part of my life was over. I had all this free time now, what in the world was I going to do with it?!

I hope your final performances went well. Hope to see some pictures of the show soon.
