The Pajama Game

Once again, it's time for a show. This time it's the Pajama Game for the A to Z Challenge.
I was in the Pajama Game in 2011. I was originally casted as a chorus member, but got moved up to a factory girl (like chorus but a little bit more) about a month before the show opened. I had to learn a lot of things last minute and I ended up having one line as well. The best part was getting to wear pajamas in the final scene.
This was an interesting show. Once I had gotten moved up in the cast, I had a great time and was able to become close with people that I'm still really close to today. We were performing one night and it decided to thunderstorm. During one of our songs (the factory girls with our boss), the power went out for several seconds. We froze for a second, but then went straight back to singing and doing what we were supposed to be. It was known as the show must go on. At the end, the audience clapped so loud for us and it was the best feeling in the world - it was almost like a standing ovation. It meant more that night and a moment that I'll never forget.
The Factory Girls (I'm in the red) and Hines. Sorry about the glare.

This was great looking back on this. Also, I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm a little behind in my visits (as I've been sick this week), but will be catching up soon.

Happy Reading and Keep on Writing!



  1. What a fun memory! It's interesting how things going "wrong" is often what causes an event to stand out in our memory.

    1. Thanks Cathy! Yea, it was totally unexpected, but it's something that we can look back and laugh about. ~Meg
