Shadow by the wings!!


 Work through the concepts... witness the audition…

Stand in the shadows… effect a perfect rendition…

When the final notes of the act the prima donna sings…

…remember… it is time to exit off the wings…

 

… lend the hand where needed… render them pert and ready…

… a living cue card always be… prompt every performer needy…

… a knot, brush, stich or a pin … a helper there where necessary…

… the pat on the back, the invisible hands that hoist or carry…

 

… ere the applause begins…  get set for the next flight…

… a bow in the shadows… beware of the passing limelight…

… do, be done and disappear… never a backward glance…

… melodramatics floods the stage… flee while there’s still a chance…
