After that scene, I was changing lights and adding sounds to whatever was necessary in my little cave with a view. We eventually wrapped up and I shut down everything.
I went down to the auditorium and saw the Dragon Witch herself.
“Darina, you were fantastic out there!” I encouraged her.
She took her fake fangs out and smiled. “Aww, shucks. You’re too kind to an unsung reptilian hero like me.” Darina giggled a bit as her normal voice returned which was higher than that threatening snarl she did for rehearsal.
“You’ve got this. Ready to begin showtime next week?”
“That I am. It’s the last play of the school year. I’ll make everyone proud including the late great Sylvester Wheeler.”
