Places Please People!
You may be familiar with that phrase.
That is what the stage manager yells to the actors,
just before the curtain goes up.
He has the job of watching the time, and making sure that
everyone is present, dressed, and in the wings, ready to go
That is my job.
I am your stage manager, so to speak,
and the time has come for me to make that announcement.
You can feel the anticipation,
Something big is about to happen.
You have been standing, in the wings,
preparing, and now the time has come to go on!
You know the role you will play,
it is starting to become second nature to you.
Now just walk slowly and quietly ,
to your mark on the stage, and wait for the lights to go up…..
It will be any minute now.
“Places Please People”!
