She lingers offstage until her cue. She flips mane out of her eyes. It trails down her neck in glossy black rivulets. Her dapples reflect the pink and blue stage lights. She prances in anticipation.
Melody will make her screen debut at Riverwalk Theatre this weekend and next.
Why screen, and not stage?
(Technically, it’s both. We have a two-fer)
Come see Melody’s theatre debut.
May 30-June 2,
