"The Producers" at Diamond Head, and working at the 50th State Fair...

Yesterday I took my Mom to see our local Diamond Head Theatre's production of "The Producers." Since Mark was unable to join us (due to his shingles - poor guy!) I thought it would be nice to extend the invite to Mom and make use of his ticket. :) She really enjoyed the show - and much to my surprise, so did I.

I think, for me, it was less about thinking I wouldn't like the production (Diamond Head has been putting together some VERY quality productions lately!) but the fact that I have been avoiding watching "The Producers" (in any form) since it premiered on Broadway. Not too sure why...

But, I have to admit, that I enjoyed the show. One of my favorites of the cast had to be Douglas S. Scheer (Roger DeBris) who was extremely hysterical in his signature number "Keep it Gay" AND I thought would have been an excellent choice for Albin in "La Cage" had Randl Ask (remember how enthralled I was with his performance back then?) not been available to do the role when we saw it in 2006. I also got the opportunity to see Kenji Higashihama (who I'd seen previously - and loved - in "Flower Drum Song" a couple of months ago...) who was just charming in various roles (and who really stood out from the ensemble, I thought)

I'm really enjoying the productions at Diamond Head this year - so much so that Mark & I renewed our subscription seats for a third consecutive year. :)

In other non-related news, today I will be working at the 50th State Fair, helping out in the hamburger and french fry booth for my class (or my cancelled class). They need hearing volunteers to help with the customer orders and it's a good way to interact with people from the deaf community and really put my (very little, haha!) sign language skills to practical use. I volunteered last year and it was a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to it this year. :)

Hope you're all having a nice weekend!! I'm off to catch up on everyone's entries then it's off to work at the fair! :D HUGS!
