William Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women, merely players”.


I love the theater!  We go every time we get the chance.


This week we have been at our son’s college play and I have been observing all that it takes to put on a play.  So many lines to memorize, and be able to say with great expression and conviction before an audience; and, so many songs to be mastered, with all of the harmony and timing worked out perfectly.


I get so excited when I hear the director call out to the cast of many, “Okay, Lights – Camera – Action!” Well, those may not be his exact words…but something like that!


Tonight, for the first time, I noticed all it takes to make the play run well for the actors.  All of the stage construction, light coordination, and people working the props.  They are called the “People in Black”.

Today I’m writing over at Lee Merrill’s blog called Prayer Gifts.  Won’t you come over and join us for the rest of the story?
