One day Paul got a phone call from the director of the community theatre. “You didn’t come to auditions,” he said. It was true, Paul had missed the auditions because we were hosting the annual reunion of his college buddies. “Come in tonight and read for me.”
So he did, with the boys in tow because it was a Wednesday night and I was busy with the Young Women at church. They planned rehearsals around my schedule, never once on a Wednesday, and last month had a three week run of Blithe Spirit, with Paul playing the good doctor, the straight man in a comedy.
More recently Paul took the boys to a reading at the library and on Friday night they filmed the commercial. Paul is now the face of Dewey D, the library spokesman.
Neither of these are of the same caliber as ACME, but it sure is fun for Paul to have this creative outlet.
