"There's small choice in rotten apples." Taming Of The Shrew 1.1


Our annual trip to Cedar City Utah for the Shakespearean Festival is upon us, we leave on the morrow. Tim and I adore this trip because a. it's a hella lot cooler in Utahr and b. we get too see 3 plays. Taming of the Shrew, Cyrano De Bergerac and Fiddler On The Roof, it's the perfect trifecta.


The downside is that we have to play in the annual best ball Golf Tournament that my dad started a decade ago. Tim and I suck at golf and that is an understatement.

Erica and Zach were supposed to ride up with us, but Erica spoiled everything with her lame excuses like "we are trying to save for a house, we need to save money." Whatevs Erica. She is crossed off my list for souvenirs, if she's lucky she might get a Bill Shakespeare key ring.

Fiddler on the Roof? I didn't know Shakespeare was Jewish... And as for Erica...

The saddest thing to me is that it is cooler in Cedar City than it is where you are. Very sad, indeed.

Erica and her lame grown-up excuse. Seriously.

Karen, they put on 3 Shakespeare plays and 3 non-Shakespeare plays every year at the festival.

Yes, Caca, we missed you. You could have ridden up and stayed with your Mom to save money. Maybe next year we can be on the same golf team!!!!!

I love those flowers in the planters in your pics, Michelle.

So who was the festival??? Who won the golf game :)

EEK said...

Chris - Much ado about sarcasm. Maybe they need to update the name of the festival to the "Dead Playwriters Society Festival"? Or maybe I'm just jealous because I never get to do anything fun.

Let's see the team I was on did not win the golf tourny, the Allbee team won. My fav play was Fiddler with Taming of the...2nd. They set it in a WWII era which was quite enjoyable, the cast had a lot of fun with it. Mother made the trip down but it was quite the hassle for her, they gave away her handicap room, but after Jannie yelled at the mgr and threatened a live gutting he was able to find her the correct room.
