9/16/2018-ACTING-Pirates Weekend at Exit 33 (Turning Stone Casino) Last Night

-I was invited once again by PIRATE QUEEN QUIGLY to be part of the crew at Pirates Weekend at EXIT 33 (TURNING STONE CASINO) in Verona, NY on Saturday 9/15/2018. I reprised my role as “Johnny Red”-but with a different look this time. There were many things different this year-less crew, no dressing room, one day instead of two and only being in the Lave / Tin Roaster /The Gig areas. There were also some familiar faces like CAPTAIN JACK FOR HIRE CNY , Jim Hanselman and Craig Loomis. There was also an undead pirate here, but I never saw him out of costume. All of them, as well as Miss Quigly of course did great-as usual.

-I think I did OK. With the events that have happened in the past 10+ months, I was a little rusty on both accents and live improve but I believe I held my own. Since I was on “duty,” I wasn’t able to take a lot of pics. I did pose for a number of them from others though-which is always very flattering cause, in a lot of ways, I’m basically the “unknown pirate” compared to the others here. I got called “Captain Jack’ three times and each time I thought, “You’re drinking some hard stuff there laddy.” 😀

-Overall I had a good time-which flew by after the initial hour real fast. It’s always a trip to play a role that’s not like yourself-and there’s definitely some parts of “Johnny Red” that are not me at all but hey, that’s all part of the fun right? 🙂
