We raised $9,000 for the gay & lesibian youth theatre. WOOHOO!!
The show was called FLIP FLOP because men sang women's songs and vice versa.
Here's me and the brilliantly talented Beckie Menzie and Honey West! Ain't we cute?
When Amy Matheny told me the gimmick to the show - - men singing women's songs and all that - - I thought, "Yeah, and?"
I mean, if you've ever seen me perform or heard me sing, you know that I've been singing women's songs since age 7 when I took my father's t-shirt, pulled the neck down just below my shoulders and did the Olivia Newton-John track in both "Summer Lovin'" and "You're The One That I Want" from GREASE, much to the horror of both of my parents.
And I knew there would be power ballads sung by both men and women from the cast of WICKED, SPELLING BEE, the Marriott Lincolnshire production of THE PRODUCERS and so on, so I really had to pull out my "A Game" here.
So, what did I end up singing? "Poor, Unfortunate Souls" - - Ursula, the Sea Witch's song from THE LITTLE MERMAID. Pat Carroll, eat your heart out.
I did all the dialogue leading-up-to and in-the-middle-of the song. And y'all, I was a hit!
Not that you can tell that "I was a hit" or that I was singing "Poor, Unfortunate Souls" or that I was doing anything other than having a conniption fit from these event photos.
As you can tell, I'm very subdued when I sing...
