The Sunshine Boys Opening Tonight

Overture, curtains, lights
This is it, the night of nights
No more rehearsing and nursing a part
We know every part by heart

Overture, curtains, lights
This is it, you’ll hit the heights
And oh what heights we’ll hit
On with the show this is it

Tonight what heights we’ll hit
On with the show this is it

Remember this, from The Bugs Bunny Road Runner Show. I think it is very appropriate. This is the first play I have am in (well other than grade school) and I am excited. I have never thought about these words until just now. I started to write “Tonight’s the night, on with the show this is it” and it reminded me of the opening theme or Bugs Bunny. It suddenly means more to me than I can express. A life time of memories floods forth from childhood. Not at all what I intended to write here.

Anyway, please come out to see me and the rest of the cast:

BEN SILVERMAN Michael Nelson
AL LEWIS Kenneth Bergess
NURSE Monique Diaz-Piedra

Play Notice: The Sunshine Boys

Jayne, from my second class with Chris, called me on Friday night having just returned from rehearsal. The person who was to play a very minor part could not and the part had to be recast. She gave me the phone number of the director (Richard Dillon). Well I called and was given the part based on Jayne’s recommendation. Auditions are good, but friends are better. As in anything else in life, it’s who you know!

Play: Neil Simon’s “The Sunshine Boys”
Director: Richard Dillon
Where: Polk Street Players
Description: Two old vaudevillians have been separated for ten years. When the son of one tries to get them back together for one last fling, hilarity ensues.
