A great cause and a great show!
happens when a little girl dreams of Olympic equestrian glory, but
finds she must train on a Prairie pig farm? Sometimes you have to put
down the Pony Club Manual and just...improvise.
you've ever longed for a horse, run amuck of a determined pig or just
enjoy a good yarn about an underdog who wins, Reisa's true life story
will make you howl with laughter. At once starry-eyed with dreams and
grounded by Prairie girl pragmatism, a feisty eleven year old girl sets
out to train for the equestrian Olympics.
When her family is
unsupportive, she turns to a crusty old mare and a herd of hogs even
more ambitious than she. And gains a prize perhaps more precious than a
gold medal. Complete with impersonations of farm animals and British
fox hunting elite.
I hope you'll be in the audience when I
perform this humourous horse monologue and song at the Red Cross
Benefit, UFV Theatre, 8 pm Saturday, April 2nd. It's a variety show,
and my piece is about 15 minutes. It's the story behind the wacky photo
on this page. Yep, that's me with two of the supporting characters,
Topsy and her daughter, Tina.
