Got word yesterday from Peggy Taphorn at Temple Theatre that I’ve been cast as Polonius and as the two clowns which director Rick St. Peter will combine into one Gravedigger.
The rate of pay is no longer what it was when millionaire David Matthews was artistic director of the Temple, but it’s adequate. And I do have my day job. I look forward to working with Michael Brocki, who played Hucklebee to my Bellomy when we did Fantasticks together at Temple two seasons ago. Unfortunately, another Fantasticks graduate, Mark Filiaci (who played Mortimer), was not cast. But it will be good to take up residence in the actor’s quarters again. Acting gigs really are like paid vacations.
A new-ish print design client, St. Francis Foundation, tossed me a few very enjoyable small projects this week – two invitations that needed immediate turnaround. They both went to the printer today and should be mailed by Monday. Zippity whippity. (Click images for larger versions in new window.)
