Tech Week Wilderness

Join us at Theatreland's latest attraction, Tech Week Wilderness. After waiting in the greenroom strap yourself in for a bumpy and unpredictable ride, because the Wilderness is never the same ride twice. Will your trip include the downward spiral of missed cues or the free falling sensation of lost lines? You're almost certain to take a turn down the sleepless night cavern and experience a vibrating over-caffeinated hallucination (brought to you via our latest 3D technology!). Which villain will pop out of the darkness before opening night? It may be a bitter cast mate, a stressed out director, a sabotaging producer, a negligent crew member, or even the dreaded early critic. The ride concludes with opening night. Will you soar along to the sound of thunderous applause or plunge into the awkward silence of oblivion?

Fast pass available. This ride is not recommended for those with neck or back problems, insecurity, or stage fright.

This post (which pretty much foreshadows my week ahead) has been a Monday Mission. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a post in the style of a description for an amusement park ride/attraction. If you write such a post please post a link in the widget below.

Upcoming Monday Missions are to write posts in the style of:
3/16 - a food label
3/23 - March Madness - playoff description
3/30 - an (early) April Fool's story

Brilliant as always! This theatrical one I enjoyed especially.

Sometimes the lights go out entirely too, don't they? It's been a long time since I went on that ride but I can say that running the child care service for a certain ride operator can be it's own sort of midway hell.

Also, I love the name retroMad. It makes me feel like the half-sister of metroDad.

Phew -- and there you go, smiling all the way and mastering it all.
Great job!

Stage fright keeps me off that ride!

Hang on tight, once it's over you'l look back and realize how enjoyable the ride was, glad you're back

And keep your hands in the car at all times!

Hopefully there's fun there amongst all the stress!

Me again. Can I interview for my Motherscribe Feminism interview?

If you are interested, please email me through my profile, and I'll send you the questions. :)

Tech Week? And you just got back from Disney? And daylight savings??

You guys must be exhausted!!

Furrow said...

Wow. Your life sounds like one long amusement park ride. Not a bad way to live, if you can keep down your lunch.

I have to skip this ride. Weak constitution. And vertigo.

But good luck! I doubt any of these whirlygigs will befall you.

Christine said...
