When I toured with A Christmas Carol, my character as written didn’t have any lines.
Everyone had to be off book on the first day of rehearsal, and I was stoked because I didn’t have to do any prep. Then we started rehearsal and they gave me two lines:
Look Everyone! Look at Lucy!
Prowls around the town no doubt. or was it Prowls about the town no doubt?
I actually still can’t remember the line. I even called Andy to ask him if he remembers, and his only response was laughter.
On stage I would say things like:
Roams about the town. Walks about the town. Or just forget it completely.
Everyone in the cast would make so much fun of me, and rightly so.
It was ridiculous!
