In 1984, when my director at Kilgore College said I had to audition for a grade…..I said I would, but he couldn’t choose me for a part, I was happy working backstage….
And he chose me.
Then neatest thing happened. On a dress rehearsal, I had gussied up to do the 1940 setting in an outdated” 1930’s fashion…. he came backstage.(I get goosebumps when I think of it…)
He told me I brought tears to his eyes…..
That is the grandest compliment I have ever gotten!
Yeah, I got the bug!
To get paid…heaven on earth for sure!
