at a Live Theater, um, Play

The energy of live theater is indescribable. You are just in the moment for an hour and a half. – Adrianne Palicki

I can’t say as how I’ve ever been to see a live play anywhere other than my high school. The first time I ever realized The Lord of the Rings was cool and that I wanted to know more about it; I was in grade school and I went to see a play my high-school aged sister was in – The Hobbit. It really put me “in the moment”! I loved it! Needless to say, I have since seen all the movies and am in Love with that Elf, Legolas. :))

The other play I remember is the one I was in while I was in high school. It wasn’t as fun or exciting as The Hobbit, but it was a live play. The play was “Up the Down Staircase.” I was the teacher in that play.

Up the Down Staircase
The experiences of a young female English teacher in an inner-city New York high school.

That’s about all I remember about it, except that one of the Hottest guys in my school played the male lead. :)) I wasn’t in love with him like I am with Legolas, though. :)) He was too Soshi (sp?) for me.

How about you? What plays have you acted in? How do you feel about Legolas? 😉

  1. Oh, one HAS to love Legolas!
    I don’t know what, exactly,I am going to post for Friday, but I will say that my first and last BIG role was second-grade and I was Little Bo Peep in a Mother Goose musical. I remember all my lines.

    In high school, I was in 4 plays.
    Three of these were in my senior year:
    I was the dad in the one-act play “Mimsy Were The Borogroves”
    I had the dual role of Beast and Prince in “Beauty and the Beast”
    I played Tony (the boyfriend) in “The Boyfriend” and had two duets with the leading lady.

    “Break a Leg,” Jeff! You have quite an acting resume! You didn’t answer my question about Legolas. 😉

    You’ve Never Heard of Prince Legolas of The Fellowship of the Ring in the Third Age???? Be still my heart.

    You haven’t seen The Lord of the Rings?

    I was never in a play, I just can’t act. Hubby always says, it comes from my inability to lie. I suppose it’s a good thing in a way.
    Ignorant of the Hobbit movies, I had to google Legolas … LOL …


  8. pjharjo says:

    wow imagine that. 🙂

    I’m sorry I did not make myself clear, Iris. I just cannot imagine anyone not having at least Heard of The Lord of the Rings.
