Casting Calls


Were once

Crowds cheering


She gave on the stage

Lunatics and sidekicks

She nailed the character roles

Always dreamed of Broadway one day

Stardom wasn’t ever a concern

It was work that wasn’t work, just plain fun

When did it happen that life took over

Met the man, took the vows, footlights dimmed

New circle of friends, new career

Her turn in the audience

Decades of twists and turns

Now she is alone

With memories


Grease paint
