Happy New Year, Gentle Reader!
Well, I had tried to upload a post about The Making of the Star Wars Holiday Special, but it didn’t work. I had been writing it for 3 days!
Wah, wah, waaaaahhh!
So, on that note, all I will say is that it was a crazy fun experience that was the first time that I had a chance to work on something that had such a heightened sense of absurdity. I LOVED it!!!
NOTE: When I say absurdity, I literally mean ridiculous, not the style of theatre as known by certain playwrights.
Of course, it helps that the other actors were incredibly talented. Our creative staff was clever and everyone had so many great ideas that took this cute and funny tribute to the holiday special into an experience to be had. There were so many references and inside jokes that I STILL laugh at when thinking about them.
One thing I will admit, I had never seen the special before and we watched it together as a cast before the first read through, Oh, Dear Reader! What glorious madness it was. Not to be out done, though. Donnie and Marie Osmond did a Star Wars themed skit in first episode of season 3. Mix up the two and pull out some of those cheesy gooey bits and you have most of the script.
Sadly, this isn’t quite the post I wanted to make, but I wanted to get something written. Thank you, Kind Reader for your time. I hope that 2019 is full of wonderful and amazing things for you.
Until next time…
