Scarlet Pimpernel

I was prepared to do Henry V's Crispin Crispian's Day speech, and sing "Daisy on my toe" by the Smothers Brothers. That, and my stellar resume, I felt sure would do the trick.
In reality, they glanced at me, had me sing Happy Birthday, and told me to sit down, rehearsals were starting in a few minutes. So that's me in "Scarlet Pimpernel" - unnamed ensemble member, of course. I can't read music so the musical rehearsal was something of a challenge, and I haven't sung in public since High School (unless jody calls in the Army count) ...but hey, I get to wear cool costumes and fence on stage!

Performances are in early April. If you're not there, I will kill your pets.

Will you spare my cute little snake if my show runs the same time as yours? If I can swing it, I will make my best effort to go to your closing day since my closing night is on your second to last performance and I'd rather go to your show than do the alternatives on Easter.

Either way, congrats and I'm sure you'll be dashing as usual.

I won't be there (I'll be in Arizona), but I have no pet, so I'm not worried.

Congratulations.

I *dare* you to try looking Sirius Black in his big, brown Labrador Believer eyes and then do him any harm. (Okay, no- I don't actually dare you. But I still think you couldn't do it.)

But I am a huge fan of the Baroness Orczy so I will be there, of course.

Excellent, excellent. I assure you, I'm quite merciless when it comes to pet killing. Except my own, of course.

And how do you get this to jive with your Free Puppies campaign pledge?

Oh it dovetails perfectly. If people HAVE less pets, they NEED more pets. See?

Sure, but from you? It's like taking an ice cream cone from the bully who will just knock it out of your hands and onto the ground. Surely people aren't... okay, yeah, they probably are that dumb. Or at least that distractable.

Well, it's more like buying an ice-cream cone from the bully that just knocked your last cone on the ground ... but I take your point. Still.

Free puppy! Who could resist?

But I'm on the wrong coast!
My poor little hamster ;_;

You couldn't really hurt a hamster named Scallywag, could you?

SMC. So close to your house that you couldn't possibly have an excuse not to see the play!

GREAT SUCCESS!!!

Call me for all the hot stage tips. I did theatre for a decade and have plenty of good stuff up my sleeve. :P

But...but... it's on the other side of the country! And I love my kitty!

So you're saying you don't love your kitty enough to fly across the country for him?

Also, congrats and have fun in the show.

Pictures of you in the play, not of pet-a-cide that is.
