    Hey all,

    Because of all the "lurkers" on the board, I figured I'd post this in case anyone is close by.

    I'll be playing Oscar Madison in Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple" July 18, 19, and 20 at 7:00 in the Oxford High School Theater. Please come if you are in the area. I have poured my life into this show both on stage and behind the scenes. I'll post pictures soon, but I think that this will rate second as my favorite show to have been involved in!

    Hey Nate, that's great!

    Were I in your neck of the woods I would be there-- terrific play.

    Thanks Annika,

    I know that Kevin (FOZZI3B3AR) is going to try and make it down for the show.

    Maybe he can write a review!:D

    Hey, I'm the writer around here---maybe Kev can pick me up, take me with him to the show, and I'll write a review! :D

    I thought you were a technical writer....... :D

    I was. But I'm muuuuuuuuuuuuuch more creative than technical!


    I am!

    Then come see the show and write a review. You ain't that far away. Just don't expect to stay at my place. To many people and too messy as it is.

    Hey guys,

    Well the show closed and it was a hit. Thanks for all the well wishes. I'll post pictures to my yahoo photo alblum soon. They are a hoot.

    I gotta brag for a moment (I mean what else is MC for other then to share stuff, huh?). I had a little older lady come up to me after the show to say that she had seen the original production in the 1960's with Art Carney and Walter Matthau, and she swore up and down that my co-star and myself were every bit as good as they were. She said we had more chemistry between us, and more depth to the characters. It really made my night! I don't buy it, but it was nice anyway.

    Here's to the day when my MC folks can make it to one of my shows!!!!

    Congragulations Nate, I hope someday I can come to one of your shows... Right now I'm working on a modern-day version of Antigone, but it's a small theatre production. Anyway, congragulations again, and I hope you have as much success in future productions. By the way, is this what you want to do, or is your dream to make it on broadway, or with movies, or TV.

    Great to hear, Nate! I'm sure when we do our homemade production of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" in Emmy's living room at "A Muppet Central Family Christmas" this December, you're sure to snag a great part!


    Really though, that's awesome to hear about how well you did!!

    Thanks guys,

    I really want to dabble in it all. Radio is my first love, but TV, live theatre and film all have a place too. I kinda want to be the Rosie O'Donnell version of Howard Stern and be the true king of all media (including writing, got a few books in me I'd love to do). As long as I'm happy I don't care.

    Right now I'm trying to learn everything thing I can both behind the scenes and in front of the microphone, camera, audience, etc. The opportunities are there right now for me, so I'm grabbing every chance I get. I've got an incredible foundation in radio and broadcasting, and have been very fortunate there. The others will hopeful come along as well.

    Of course making it big would be great too. I really hope I do, as I have vowed to give money back to the places that started it all with me, mainly the University of Mississippi and Oxford. Only time will tell.

    As for the Christmas Carol, get my agent on the phone now Byron. I haven't committed to anything yet, but talks are on the table for me to do "A Tuna Christmas". (A great show if you guys don't know what it is).

    But Jackie and I get to narrate the story. Since we're like Bert and Ernie, only we're both Ernie...

    I don't want to play the narrator. I'll have to Poppa, thats it. No other part is right for me.

    Jackie has to wear the kerchief! LOL!!

    But Emmy's "Poppa", as she is Ernie.

    How 'bout a mouse who doesn't stir?

  16. radionate

    radionate Well-Known Member

    Wait a minute. Poppa is the narrator. I forgot that. Sigh, don't make me play Santa Claus. And a creature not stirring isn't a big enough part for me to shine! (just kidding) Why don't we start a new tradition by doing a new show. Like A Christmas Carol, or The Best Christmas Pagaent Ever!

    Fine, if you don't wanna keep it Muppety, DON'T COME TO THE PARTY!

    Why can't we do a Muppet Christmas Carol Mr. Man. Don't raise your voice to me. I'm the older twin remember, I have seniority.

    Cause it doesn't even begin to compare---MFC is waaaaaaay out of MCC's league. ;)

    Why don't we make our own new Muppet Christmas movie. Then we can compare it to the new one coming out!
