I talked with John Wells (founder and drummer of Waterloo) after the show and gave him my thoughts on Super Trooper. He thought perhaps I was a bit bias. I just know ABBA. He is going to be in the pit for Mamma Mia, something that cheered me considerable. He so knows that music.
After visiting with him, I went into the lobby and Jay grabbed me. She was furious that Sceona hadn't cut Ava, our marketing manager, her paycheck. She gets paid once a month, but even so, she deserves her money on time. She works very hard for the theatre. I asked Jay if she'd like me to take care of it, so Chris went home with the Evans and I cut the check. While there, I saw the time cards and paystubs. Sure enough, Sceona had given herself all her hours and sick pay. I pointed it out to Jay who said the wheels were in motion. I suspect Sceona will soon be job hunting. Dominee, our board president, came up to me after the show, hugged me and told me how valuable I was to the theatre. Hmmm, I feel I am being buttered up for something...
Anyhow, it was nearly midnight before I got home and I guess the party went from the lobby to Wine by the Mile down on Miracle Mile and heard that most of the cast and crew, plus several audience members headed there for a cast party.
Yesterday we got an early start and got back home before 9:30, but it was already hot and the air thick. Air quality is zero right now. We hit 110, but they have scaled back today to 105. We should be back into double digits tomorrow and by Friday, the glorious 80's. I can't wait!
Today we need to get some cat food out at Petsmart and I might treat TBG to lunch. That is the only thing on the books and I want to keep it that way.
And since it's Sunday...
Guess who the introvert and extrovert is around here.
Even in the heat, Bete Noir loves the heat
My early morning 'helpers'
And Jenny, suckering around for more treats!
One of our lobby decorations at our little store. I will try to sneak over there today and get a shot of the haunted doll house before we open.
