RANDOM PROP ASSISTANT:

((Whispering to ENNIS, off-screen))

The midieval one of course!

((A little louder))

You just look on that there map away and under your Mountain and EMMA NANGEL, and you see right where Old Man Twist an' his ranch is located. OMT's clearly marked there down below-ways on the map, - the full, snake-like, ire-spouting, tails-an'-horn-sportin' character for all to see and' shudder!

Miss O'Hara:

**Oh heavens, me. Have Ah done somethun Ah shouldn't have? Ah stepped out here ahn your stage and just ruined this lovely performance. Ah must have taken a wrahng turn tryin' tah find Ms. Wont. If someone could just point me in thah rahght direction, Ah'd be much obliged. Y'all are doin' such a lovely job... Ah can't tell you how much it means tah me tah be able tah audition for that poor boy's mother.**

((Becoming slightly emotional, Miss O'Hara pulls out her fan and fans herself rapidly.))

**Ah swear...well Ah'm not right sure whaht Ah'm swearin', but Ah do swear!**

((Miss O'Hara sniffles loudly.))

WELLIWONT~

%%Oh my!!!  Vivien Leigh, in the flesh!!  What miracle is this?!?  My most favourite actress in the whole wide world, here, on our stage!!  I swear, I'm gonna faint!  oh dear!%%

Oh Miss O'Hara!  I mean, Miss Leigh!  what an HONOUR to have you grace our stage!  I don't know what to say!  For you of course, NO audition is necessary, mercy me!  Please, won't you have a seat?

((looks frantically around for a suitable settee for the lovely lil gal))

A settee!!  where are all of our settees?

%%darn that DIRECTOR RAYMILLE with his freakin' casting couches littering the countryside, and not a single chaise longue when ya need one!%%

Would somebody please bring a divan for our newest performer??  Quickly, quickly!!

Miss O'Hara:

((gracefully settles into the divan))

**Oh Miss Wont, it's such a pleasure tah be able tah meet you. Ah do so love your work here. Everyone is doin' so well, Ah just wahnted tah trah mah hand at it. Ah've looked at thah script a bit, and Ah do have some suggestions though. Ah think Mrs. Twist is quite a morose character. Wouldn't it be betteh tah lahven her up a bit? Just a tad? Whah, she's as sour as Yankee tea. If Ah could put just a drop or two o' sugar and sweeten her up a bit, Ah'd be ever so grateful.**

WELLIWONT~

We-llllll now......  The vision of The Performance Thread has always been to support and nourish Artistic Expression,  but at this late stage, the other Performers have already learned all their lines, and they are

%%(some one of them, anyway)%%

....completely unimaginative when it comes to improv.  Soooo, why don't you do the part the way you see it, and we will see what we will see.

How does that sound?  Oh, and here's a Publicity Still of your "husband" just to help you to get in character:




I think it will help if you just imagine the last 40 years of your life married to him.

SCARLETT O'HARA:

**Wha, whaht a dahrling little man. A bit rough around the edges but Ah gaht everything under control. Ah made a few changes to the set, though, ta make it feel more like mah own home. Ah hope ya'll don't think the crystal chandelieah's too much, 'cause it came from mah ancestral home in Atlanta.**


**Ah'm guessin' mah pahrt's comin' up soon. Ah'll just rest here a bit til Ah'm ready for mah entrance.**
