I think there comes a day in every parent’s life when they remember that once upon a time they, too, “had a life". That day for me was when I was a back-stage helper at my daughter’s performance in Grease. As I pulled the curtain open, (my designated job), I started to get teary-eyed. The other parents thought it was because I was so smitten with how cute my daughter looked on stage, but it was really because I wanted to be out there singing and doing the Hand Jive too! But how could I ever get back on stage (it had been 27 years since performing in high school – good grief!), and my plate was way too full being a lawyer, wife, mother, domestic engineer, chauffer, etc…. And besides, I had never taken singing or dancing lessons. Sigh, the world of theater had passed me by. Or so I thought...
But Mary Spinosa-Wilson thought differently, and because of her vision, enthusiasm and not-so-gentle pushing, this past Spring, I played Lucy Van Pelt in Theatre with a Twist’s You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. And when we took the show to the Northeast EMACT Competition in June, and I was in the spotlight belting out a love song to Schroeder, I knew that not only did I once again have “a life” (my Theatre with a Twist friends are like family), I had way more – I had the “old me” back. A standing ovation to Mary and Theatre with a Twist!
