Day 64: Lisa-Marie

10 Jun

If you are following along, you will know that yesterday I attempted to bring a pie to an actress neighbor only to find out that she had moved. Even though I missed my “intended” recipient, I was able to bring a gift of pie to a new neighbor, so all in all, things worked out pretty well.

Today I tried to find out where the young actress from yesterday had moved to. After having no luck with the phone book, I called Ashland High School and asked them to please have Lisa’s Mom Catherine get in touch with me. A little while later, she called and I told her about my adventure yesterday. Catherine then gave me their new address and we agreed upon a time for me to bring a pie to Lisa.

Lisa-Marie has just finished her sophomore year at Ashland High but she has been acting in plays for a long time. My husband and I saw her recently in “Haroun and the Sea of Stories” by Salman Rushdie. Lisa had such presence on the stage and her energetic performance really kept our attention. Lisa has also acted in a number of other plays including Chicago at Ashland High School and Rags and Grapes of Wrath at Camelot Theatre.

As the mother of a child that loves to act, and knowing the dedication that is required to do well, I wanted to recognize Lisa-Marie for her willingness to work so hard to pursue her dream. Tonight I brought Lisa-Marie a Chocolate Cream Pie to congratulate her on her fine performance in “Haroun” and also to wish her many happy years in the theatre.

With any part you play, there is a certain amount of yourself in it. There has to be, otherwise it’s just not acting. It’s lying.
