An evening at the theater

Yesterday Kathy asked if she could see Mark and me in her office and I thought, “Oh, oh!”  However, she only wanted to ask if we’d like to see a free play tonight.  She said she and Tim would cover our evening rounds if we wanted to go, so we jumped at the opportunity.  Our co-workers, Susan and Cherie also went and we followed them to the theater.

This theater is called the Peninsula Players.  Tonight was their dress rehearsal for a play called A Real Lulu.  They invited businesses to send four people tonight so that we could talk up the play to our customers.  It’s good for them and good for us.

We got to the theater early enough to stroll around the grounds.

This reminded me of Shel Silverstein's poem, Where the Sidewalk Ends.  This road comes to an abrupt stop right before you drive into the bay!

Mark and I sat in this bench swing and had Susan take our picture.

When we were seated inside I wasn't allowed to take pictures of the stage or the set, but I got this picture behind me.

The play is a comedy about politics.  Vermont’s lieutenant governor suddenly finds himself becoming the governor.  He’s a shy man who just wants to work behind the scenes to help the people of Vermont, but he freezes up in front of cameras and people.  A big name political advisor and a pollster decide to “help” him but they make a mess of him.  His chief of staff believes in him and sees his true potential.  And there’s a totally clueless temp in the mix who nearly runs for lieutenant governor to the new governor.  It’s hilarious!

During the intermission I ran out to put the camera in the truck, but I saw a few more pictures on the way there…

We had the best time tonight with Susan and Cherie.  Thank you, Tim and Kathy, for giving us this opportunity!
