And so it ends…

The latest Paper Wing production that I have been proud to be a part of came to an end tonight.  O Brother Where Art Thou: A Musical Tribute closed tonight to a sold out and very enthusiastic audience.

Every show must end a run.  Sometimes it is a relief, sometimes it is very sad.  Sometimes it’s a mix of both.

This show was one of my favorites.  The fact that I got to do a show with my husband again was huge.  The fact that we both enjoyed the experience together was even bigger.

The first time I did this show it was 2011, and it was my second show.  I was still pretty shy and scared, but I was learning the ropes but had such a great experience with the cast and crew.  This time around it was much more relaxed for me.  I only had three scenes, and they didn’t start until the second act so there was no running around or quick changes.  It was just a lot of hanging out backstage and having fun.  The fact that my role was small yet sassy meant I got to enjoy a shorter rehearsal time(I didn’t have to do any singing on this one, so I didn’t come in until the blocking started) and fewer lines while still getting to deliver some pretty funny dialogue.  Kinda my dream role.  🙂

The cast and crew were amazing; I got to work with some of my favorite people and meet some awesome new ones.

After most every show, I go through a depression.  The length and severity vary given how attached I grew and how much fun I had.  I usually don’t even realize the end of the show is the reason behind my depression until Rob points it out to me.  I’m hoping that I have so many happy memories with me for this one that it will balance out the depression, but only time will tell.

I have no other shows lined up for this year, and much like my role of Roz in 9 to 5, I think this was a good show to go out with before a long break.  It was fun, but now it’s time to hunker down and focus on the 1/2 marathon in November.
