The Youngest Goose in the Audience

Mother Goose is always glad to attend the theatre! Yesterday we met John and Marlene again for a dose of live-action at the Circle Theatre in Oak Park.

We looked forward to seeing “When The Rain Stops Falling”

With much anticipation, we walked through the doors and into the lobby of the theatre to pick up our tickets and meet our friends. Strangely enough, we found ourselves inside a senior citizen home!

We were shocked to find ourselves in the midst of seniors on a Sunday afternoon.

Of course, several glasses of wine later, we did find John and Marlene. And this crowd of senior citizens must have been in the wrong place. We took our seats and sat mesmerized at the amazing and darkly complicated story acted out by our local talent. It is a sad story, but a very important one — they have received GREAT reviews, and rightly so.

Afterwards, as we were standing again in the lobby waiting for the seniors to get their walkers out of the way, Mother Goose spotted several of the actors and actresses coming out to meet and greet the silver-haired audience. I approached one fellow and started up a conversation with him about his performance and the wonderful project of “When the Rain Stops Falling”. He was very appreciative of the attentions of Mother Goose and was happy to oblige me with an autograph. His name is Nicholas Roy Caesar, and he played the role of Andrew. I also visited with Luke Daigle who was quite friendly, and I admired from a distance Catherine Price-Griffin, Katherine Keberlein and Mary Redmon. All fantastic players — they swept us away to another time and place.

I’m just wondering why Mother Goose is usually the youngest person at these plays and concerts…

      I know that you have gone along with senior citizens to many exotic places of the world, sissy. Of course, you have never been a senior yourself, nor will you ever have blue hair…

    What a wonderful night out with friends…old friends and the even older cast. LOL! Hold onto that youthful attitude…you should be able to pull off that “young goose” attitude for at least another couple of decades! πŸ™‚ Debra
