Two Humerous High School Plays
On Thursday November 17, Frank and I went to see our Granddaughter Sierra in her high school play. I didn't have my glasses, so I didn't get a chance to read the Director's Notes. Frank and I both had a hard time hearing and understanding the actor who played the Governor, so for a while, I really didn't understand what was going on. It was a long play, and by the time the intermission came Frank's back was hurting so I sent him home.
When the second act started, I finally understood what the play was about and to me got better. It was really funny, and made the audience laugh all through the play. My granddaughter did a wonderful job with her part in the play. We are proud of you Sierra.
Sierra was hurt the very first night of the play. There was a drunk scene where a drunk was supposed to hand her his glass and then trip. He ended up tripping as he handed the glass to Sierra and ended up falling on her and twisting her arm at such a bad angle that it tore the ligaments in her arm. What a trouper Sierra was as she continued on in the play, and was in tears back stage in between her acting parts. They iced it down, and then she would go out and do her part. She had to go on and perform three more nights in pain. She is still healing and can just barely use her arm.
