An Homage: The Performer's Blessing
But I applaud ANYONE who performs in community theatre. They too hone their craft. They take the time out of a busy life full of family responsibilities, work obligations with overtime and other commitments and go to rehearsals for weeks in order to perform a show about 12 to 20 times. In my opinion, their love of the craft is just as profound for the performing arts as those who call themselves professionals because they can't do it full time as much as they might want.
So I offer up this simple blessing for ALL performers, whether ye are young or old, professional or part-time or working toward that BIG BREAK:
May you always sing with a strong clear voice, full of power & earnest. have a monologue memorized precisely & delivered with passion, a ready dance step with amazing grace & pointed toe, and may you always get the next gig (with or without an agent) just around the bend!
