#15 - Attend a Play at the Local Theater.....

I've been trying to get this item marked off my 50 Things to Do list for a while. Well, at least since I .... wrote the list. I've asked the Warrior Princess a couple of times, but our crazy schedules never matched up. And if she couldn't go, I didn't make the effort to go alone.

We had originally planned to go to tomorrow afternoon's performance, but the stars have aligned themselves correctly and if all goes according to plan, Hubby and I will accomplish a different item on the 50 Things list tomorrow afternoon. For that one I'm missing an Atlanta Falcons football game, so you know it must be big. I hope to have pictures. Lots of pictures.

Tonight's play, though, was called Delval Divas. "Delval" is short for Delaware Valley Federal Correction Facility, a "low level security prison for white and 'pink' collar criminals." The cast was all-female, and the script had some wonderfully funny lines. One of the characters was played by a woman who taught drama (what else) at one of the high schools in our county, and she is marvelous. She even improvised when one of the other ladies began to cough during her lines, bringing her a bottle of water from the refrigerator in her "cell."

I think I will go see another performance at this wonderful theater. I'm not sure what the building used to be, but they have beautifully renovated the inside into a charming facility. I think I will make a point to attend future performances on Sunday afternoon, though. This is way past my bedtime, even on a weekend.

We have several community theaters here in Bellingham, one of the perks of living in a university town. I've gone to a few and enjoyed them all. Wish I could see this one, it sounds great!
