Flying saucer lands in Oak Harbor!

A Flying saucer has been seen flying over the Whidbey Playhouse as of late! Word has it that it is inhabited by an alien buxom aviatrix named ZOMBINA played by Amanda McCartney. Terrorizing earth and looking for he-specimens to re-populate her planet X she has ZOMBIFIED Major Malone (Nathan McCartney) and his right-hand man and Russian spy Rick Jones (Meiko Parton). Trenton Corbet (Wes Ralston) is the Young Astronaut trying to save the Probe Seven experiment from total destruction. Alas, he too is ZOMBIFIED . Major Malone’s daughter Mary (Caitlen Lewis), and his man-hungry secretary Charlene Osmanski (Mary K Hallen) along with the lovable Billy, the Tap dancing delivery boy,(Allen Young) create a cacophonous noise on the roof of the Probe Seven Control Room confronting Zombina and her Zombettes. They try to destroy the secret weapon that she keeps in her throat. Her extremely high and obnoxious voice. This Musical Comedy spoof on the 1950’s space movies is a wacky, zany production! The soundtrack may sometimes be off a bit, and the dialogue is really corny, but this is after all a spoof. A hilariously funny and toe-tapping take on the beginning of the Atomic space age. Tickets are 16.00 for all seats and reservations can be made by calling 360-679-2237. Directed by Mary Lou Chandler, Assisted by Kent Peckenpaugh, Produced by Rusty Hendrix, The Vocals Directed by Nathan McCartney and the dance routines by Daunne Zinger and K. Sandra O’Brien, This is one not to be missed!!! Show opens September 11 and runs weekends through October 3, 2009

My Pianist quit AGAIN!!! THis music is way too hard for the average joe. We tried Jim and he quit too. Right now we are singing and dancing to the CD, but that will not work for the show. I have no idea what we are going to do. Slit my wrists I think. (joke people) This was NOT a show I wanted to do, but I got offered it and took it. I am doing fine with everything else, just not the Piano player. Hard to put on a musical using only a CD!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

Back again!

No I did not do it. I sure do want to though, and the one really steep field still has the bales on it. They are cutting for the second time in the lower fields! I still have a chance. COward that I am, I probably will let this chance go right by me.

The Coupeville Festival is through for the year. We had GREAT weather, and lots of people! the vendors were happy about the way they were treated by our volunteers, and the customers were happy with the selection, and the volunteers were happy with the way it all went together. YAY!!! I have no clue how much we brought in, and probably will not until the Board Meeting. But It should be close to last year, if the vendors are correct! They all said they did better than last year, I know I spent about 200.00 and Sherry spent 100.00 also.

I have Suessical THe Musical in the can, and now I am searching high and low for a piano player. Our piano player for ZOMBIES, quit on the second day. SWELL!!!So once again I am beating the bushes looking for an accompanist. It should not be this hard! THe cast is great, and their dancing is ready, and they are almost throguh with their music, so all we have to do now is block and practice!

I am STILL waiting for Broadstripe to get here and fix my internet. GRRRRRRRRRR. I HATE waiting.
