Watch Out For The Matador! – A True Story And Guest Post By Sally Cronin @sgc58

The lovely Hugh Roberts invited me over to talk about a real life experience as part of a series on his blog. As a 16 year old I had already nurtured ambitions of being an actress and singer and was thrilled to be cast in the college operetta in a leading role. OMG did I get more than I bargained for… I hope you will head over to read about the adventure on and off stage. Thanks to Hugh for encouraging me to dredge this memory out of storage..

I’m delighted to welcome Sally Cronin to my blog today, sharing a true story that had me laughing all day after I read it. It bought back many happy memories of a similar nature for me, especially some of the parts I played in school plays and amateur dramatics.

  1. Thank you so much for being my guest this week, Sally. I love the true story you shared with us.

I only wish they still had a Saturday afternoon musical on BB2.
    Hugs to you.

  4. I knew you loved the musicals and your story about your father and football reminded me of my adventures with my mother as well (it wasn’t quite as easy to bypass my father, let me tell you!) but had never read about your adventure on the stage. Loved it! I’ve never been one for performing, but do let me know if you go on stage again. I’ll try my hardest to come! Thanks, Sally!
