acting again

Our first rehearsal for Penelope's Daughter was this morning. The author, Laurel Corona, is fantastic, as is the director, Katie Rodda! And Casey and Sonia who will share the stage with me are awesome too. It felt really good to be blocking and reviewing lines.

We'll be kicking off the San Diego City College International Book Fair. This literary event is a multi-media extravaganza, with Greek music and mythological images to be projected on the backdrop, dancers and actors giving life to the story, scholarly lecture to introduce the show, and a very lively author to narrate the evening. I have just 10 lines, but they're great lines, spoken as a half-goddess, sorceress, who is (I'm told) powerful, sexy, and fabulous!
