What can I say? Boys will be.....girls!
Summit County, where the women are athletic, and the men are pretty!

By way of explanation: Having given up on the starving actor scene when he was living in NYC, Mark decides to be both a starving actor and ski instructor in Colorado.

On his very first audition at the Backstage Theater in Breck, he gets cast in Travels With My Aunt! The director decided to cast the show the way it was originally played:by an all-male cast!!

The show runs from feb.3 to march 5th.

Well the ski instructor thing is probably a multi-year work in progress as I attempt to learn from the great ones there and humbly start on never-evers at some point. You do have Bob Barnes to blame for encouraging me on this - he talked me into believing I should at least start ITC now. As noted in a previous thread, Bob is the "head dealer" getting others hooked

The starving actor bit - hey, starving some more wouldn't hurt me any!

Plus I figure that having two low/non-paying professions is better than just one :

As for the dress - Bonni, have you been talking to the director or costumer? Last thing I heard it would be tuxes or business suits. However, if we are talking dresses, I do expect to have a choice in the fabric and color! Something shimmery that complements my sensitive eyes, perhaps? :

Plus if that's the case, I'm not the only Bear in the show who's gonna be wearin' one!

By the way, what's with the wearing a dress but "not even going to Montana?" - is there something that gonzo isn't telling us?:

MarkXS, happy birthday a day late...

It sounds like I won't have the pleasure of seeing you at Big Sky? Bummer... But, let's make some turns this winter, anyway!

Yeah, I was beginning to think it was just about the sox, I mean the....

ssh, I think Mark's decided not to wear the dress while he's in Montana--a smart decision too! Montana is not metrosexual like Colorado. And Wyoming--don't even go there.

Happy Birthday Mark and Merry Christmas to both you and Lisa.

Apparantly, since the actors play both male and female roles, the play is traditionally performed in suits, so they'll be no metrosexuality in Summit County.

However, another "mystery bear" is playing Aunt Augusta, exclusively. Not sure if the director will decide to "dress him up."

If you're not from around here, the feb. 3-march 5 time frame may be an "interesting " time to take a ski trip to Summit County!

not my doing, Mark. but there's always that crazy Fox who is trying to marry his way into Montana residency by ingratiating himself to this lady ski coach who has a daughter of marrying age.

Hey Lisa, Does this mean when I come visit in January, Mark will be there?

Are they still "Happy Birthdays" Mark?

(If my daughter knew she was being discussed on an Internet forum, she'd eviscerate the lot of us.)

We'll be very offended if you don't hook up with us.
"Happy" is a relative term. He's leaving Boston for Colorado. That's pretty happy!

if I dishonored her, I'd be forced to commit ritual seppuku so it might not even come to her wielding the knife

Leaving Boston for anywhere would be a happy thing Lisa!

Gonz, is seppuku another word for harikari?
