I was in several other plays with OPUS XXX, including Guys and Dolls, and Gypsy,
where my daughter and I both were in the play.
My daughter, Teri, played Louise as a little girl and I played Electra, one of the strippers,
complete with Christmas lights hooked up to a battery, which lit up during the strippers' song,
"You Gotta Have A Gimmick".

THE TOWNSHIP THEATER GROUP
HATS ON, HATS OFF - March 8, 2012
Our production of Hats On, Hats Off was directed by Beverly Palumbo
I wrote my scene, in which I played a drunk street lady who wnted to buy a red hat for $5.00.
The hat cost $50.00, but a Fairy Godfather, played by Alan Scharf, gave the owner of the hat
shop, played by Maurice Adelstein, an offer he could not refuse and I got my hat for $5.00.
I sang a parody, "How Much Is That Red Hat In The Window" and Alan Scharf sang a
parody on "The Godfather".
EVERYTHING AND THE KITCHEN SINK - March 7, 2013
Our production of Everything And The Kitchen Sink was directed by Beverly Palumbo
I wrote the parody on the Medium 2 Scene but was not in that scene. I was, however in a couple of other scenes.
I performed a parody lip-syncing to Patsy Cline's "She's Got You", where I pulled the items, named in the song,
out of my bosom. I was one of the TownshipTambourine Ladies. We performed a fast-paced syncronated
tambourine routine to "Put Another Nickel In The Nickelodeon". I got to perform a tap dance routine to
"Sunny Side Of The Street". I think we were called the Township Tappers. Finally, I was one of
the backup dancers to "All That Jazz", which was sung by Myrna Kranis.
There were a lot of other scenes and songs and everyone had fun putting on the show.
The audience loved the show and many said it was our best show so far.

MEETINGS, WORKSHOPS, PARTIES
At our Open Mic night, I performed, as Lilly Tomlin's Ernestine, the Switchboard Operator,
in a skit I wrote especially for the theater group, where her phone calls were to theater group
members regarding issues pertaining to those members. The group got a kick out of my skit.
At another meeting, I played the role of Martha in a workshop exerpt from "The Children's Hour",
Directed by Rima Xiques
At one of our meetings, around Thanksgiving, each table had to write a skit and sing a song
about a food item in a Thanksgiiving dinner which we pulled from a hat.
Our table selected the turkey and sang a funny song about cooking the turkey.
Here are some photos of me at various Holiday or Cast Parties.
