Ah, THE FUTURIST! sees that it’s Tuesday again and that means …
IF IT’S TUESDAY …
IT MUST BE … time for Callie Leeper, Utter Despair NJ’s resident amatuer choreographer and avant-garde playwright, to rehearse her proposed production of SUBURBAN SWAN LAKE for the Utter Despair Community Playhouse.
Due to the fact that Utter Despair NJ has only two very irritable swans, both male, and the cost of “renting” or “leasing” swans is quite expensive, Callie has utilized, at no charge, several white domesticated geese from a nearby farm.
She has had little luck in achieving artistic success with the fowl. They seem to make a LOT of noise, wander in fright and defecate at will.
This does not bode well for a professional stage production.
Callie had much more success with her staging of Neil Simon’s THE ODD COUPLE with a farm hog and a standard poodle. However, there was still the pesky problem of stage fright bowel evacuation.
