Can you believe we've reached the end of another month so fast?! Starting next week I should have some video clips of the play available. You've been sending so many e-mails about it, that I had someone come in yesterday and tape the performance so you'll get to see a little bit of what you missed.
Anyway, that's all for now. I'm off to work!

Geez, usually I'm more prepared but I really didn't have anything ready for this week so I have to come up with a few things I know off the cuff! Let's see, did you know that there's actually a MattWilkins.com out there? (don't go looking it up nothing's on it right now) But it exsist and that's something to say! Oh! And I have have a ministry named after me too?!

Above you see how beautiful our set looks as Maurice makes his way into the castle. And of course in the nest picture is yours truly pitching “woo” to women the only way he knows how…. As a dork.
You know they actually have me wearing eye-liner now for my scenes? Oh, an now I’m told only baby oil can take this stuff off?!?
Now I’m off to work… to get laughed at.

So then what did you do?
You denied me access to my blog until I switched over.
Well here I am... bite me.
PS- We'll start the comics back up tomorrow.

Well the reason for that is back in 1934, Yoshida Kogyo Kabushililaisha was founded. Sixty years later they changed their name to YKK Co. The privately owned firm, is headquartered in Japan, and has 80 companies in 52 countries working for them around the world.
Now can you guess what they provide a majority of the world with? Yep, zippers.
Pretty neat huh?

Well let's start things off with the photo shoot we did for the cast. There's me, smiling like a goofball for the camera. Black shirt and all.... yep.... this is exciting.
I'll tell you what though. Seriously, this play is a lot of fun to do. I really didn't think I'd be enjoying it this much but it's become somthing I look forward to doing everyday when I get off work. It's mainly the people that make it so fun in the first place.
Now will I do it again after this play is over, I don't know. I guess it all depends. I don't have any free time at all anymore to hang out with my friends since we're basically working every night for 4 hours straight. But I guess that's the price you have to pay when people are paying $18 a pop to see you perform.
Oh yeah. The other picture is of us praticing "Be Our Guest" in the studio. That's me of course holding a ridiculous "Cogsworth" pose while the cast dances behind me. (and to the side is "chip")
Ok, I'm out!

So now that summer is right around the corner it’s time for a little fun fact about “brain freezes”
On a hot day when you eat a snow cone, the cold crushed ice that touches the top of your mouth initiates a nerve reaction that swells blood vessels in your head. The nerve center on the roof of your mouth overreacts to the cold temperature of the snow cone and tries to heat your brain. This swelling of blood vessels is what causes an ice cream headache, or what is more commonly known as "brain freeze".
Good news about next week, I should have some play practice photos to show you by then. But for now, have a great Easter weekend folks!

You're not going to believe this one folks. Guess who now has a lead role as Cogsworth in the play now?
After having our Lumiere drop out (he wasn't very good anyway) our fellow playing Cogsworth got bumped up to the position. So while they were calling around town for an actor to play Cogsworth, I read his lines in the meantime.
When the question was popped on me I was shocked. Here's a guy who's never been in on stage before (a play at our church 7 years ago doesn't count) who even didn't go to the auditions in the first place! And now.... he's Cogsworth?!
So now I'm spending every free moment of my time trying to memorize the entire script before the curtain goes up in two weeks. Oh yeah.... this is going to be a fun.
