Stage Door, Gang Show…Thursday Doors.

Welcome to Another Thursday Doors!

This week we’re heading to Stage Door at the Laycock Street Theatre, Gosford for the final performance of the Central Coast Gang Show, which is put on by our local Scouts and Guides. This included our dearly beloved son and this was his fourth show.

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.”

William Shakespeare

You will observe a certain teenage je ne sais quoi in my reluctant subject posing with his beloved phone looking like he’s lurking down a dark alleyway about to rob a bank.

“I love people who go on stage and blossom like a weird flower.”

Christine and the Queens

However, he came to life on stage and smiled the whole way through. That is, however, except when he was playing know-it-all Mr Fix-it and he was brilliant. The only trouble was that we’re not quite sure how much he was acting…

    Always fun when one of the family is into drama:) Had to smile about your comment that you didn’t know how much he was “acting!”
    Good to connect with you again – how is your writing going?

    Did you put that boy on a kid stretcher? What are you feeding him? How’d he get so tall? These are the questions that need answers! And if he is the prince of acting, does that make you the drama queen? :snorf:

    A lot of pride in there but also a lot of laughs and also a sense of relief when it went so well.

    I have always been the undisputed drama queen although Zac the dog is trying to knock me off my perch. He cries quite a lot. Our daughter tends to go into her room.
    As for the son stretching, you’ve known us for awhile now and he really has shot up in the last couple of years and still has a way to go. I thought I was fairly safe with Miss always being considerably shorter but she’s catching up too. Just as well I’m tall.

    Great to hear from you again too. My writing is probably going pretty well as I have a draft of my first story for my book and wrote three poems this week. I went for a couple of long beach walks with my camera and they were incredibly inspiring.
    The son keeps me on my toes. Arrived home Friday night to find he’d put a hammock high up in our jacaranda tree. He’s always loved heights unlike his father and sister. The sister gets scared on the Ferris wheel.
    How are things with you going?
    Best wishes,
    Rowena
