I TRUST people to say lines to me so I can say my own.
I TRUST people to work the light board so I may be seen.
I TRUST one of my fellow cast members to NOT punch me in the nose every night.
I TRUST everyone to do their job.
I take this so seriously because it's so personal to me. The stage is where I feel most like myself. Isn't that ironic? But it's my family up there, my home. A very special director once said to his cast, "I love you guys. But I love the theater more." Honestly, at first, I took that the wrong way. But now...I think I understand.
Don't mess with my home. Or my family. Trust me.
