Chapter 46: The Blank Page

staring at blank page

The questions Rebecca and I are personally asked the most pertain to writing a NarroWay show: “What does it take to create a show? How long does it take? Where do you get your inspiration?”

For this reason, we are dedicating this chapter to answering those questions.

It doesn’t seem to be the most interesting of subjects to us, but there must be some who are curious.

So, here goes...

It starts with a blank page and a conviction from the Lord. I don’t try to come up with ideas for shows, they come to me as titles. I hear it in my spirit or in someone speaking and it’s like it is highlighted and in bold. I know that is a show.

When she first tells me, Rebecca may have no idea how that title translates into a script.

Chapter 45: The Show Must Go On

What can go wrong on stage? The better question is, “What CAN’T go wrong on stage?” Over these many years in theater, there have been many mishaps.

When we were outdoors at the amphitheater, we used real fire. More than once we told the outdoor cast of “Lord of Light” to lower their torches when they ran under the rock arch with the half curtain!

Still, nearly every performance that flame-toting cast set the arch on fire.

The audience sat in wonder of the show as the headsets were buzzing with, “Fire! The arch is on fire!” until the stage manager beat it out. That curtain was short lived.

Chapter 44: The Tail of Three Bassets

Jessie, JP, Jehu – you may not know these guys, but these are the men in our lives. They aren’t the typical clean-shaven, handsome hunks with which many of you share life.

Nope, these were MUCH easier to train!

Children... we love them, but they require time ...and food ...and money! And with the schedule we keep, there hasn’t been much time for social things or vetting husbands.

So, we got the next best thing to a man – a BASSET HOUND!!
