As you can probably guess, I got side tracked from my normal sewing, cooking, horse riding and sight-seeing activities… I just haven’t been posting. Why do you ask?
The reason is that I have been working with the Carnegie Players in Cleburne Texas on a theatrical project. One thing I always wanted to do was be in a musical – I have absolutely no acting experience.
I cannot even begin to tell you how exciting it is to be part of this amazing adventure.The people are so nice and while a lot of work, the process is also great fun.
Becki Esch (aka Rhetta Cupp) is my on stage sister – I am Prudie Cupp. Us girls own a diner which is situated right next door to Jim and L.M.’s service station and what fun we have! This show is so full of fun music, songs and jokes that everyone who comes to see us enjoys themselves. We even have had folks dancing in the aisles!
This past Sunday I had the amazing opportunity to sing to my very own husband! Yep, our Director – Kate Hicks – chose him from the audience to be the “Best Man”. Of course, he has always been the best man to me, but I will cherish forever the opportunity to sing to the love of my life on stage.
Kate picks someone new every show – you could be the next “Best Man”.
All the folks that are in or work with this show have really worked hard to make this so much fun. We have a full crew of live musicians – many of which sing, dance and have a part to play in our story as well. Dick Helmcamp is the Musical Director as well as “Hank” at the station.
There are still two full weekends left to come see us – and you should! Shows are Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Click here for more information: Pump Boys & Dinettes
Plan on spending some time laughing, singing and dancing in the aisles!
