This past month, Let Me Be Frank Productions went back in a time (as we always do, I guess) to the 1950s for our show “Seymour, 'Home of the Burger' Happy Days." Enter the doo-wop harmonies, fantastic wigs, saddle shoes and songs of yesteryear. During our Friday evening performance on April 7, 2017, I did a little behind-the-scenes live-tweeting of the show. Enjoy!
@FranklyGreenBay 7:32pm – Hello!
@KaseyRenee12 here from LMBF. I'm ready to tweet our show tonight! "Seymour Home of the Burger Happy Days" here we come!
@FranklyGreenBay 7:33pm – Pre wig and costume!
@FranklyGreenBay 7:53pm – Definitely had to YouTube how to tie a neck scarf. You can find anything on YouTube.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:02pm – Rumor has it that we have a bus load of people from Seymour here tonight. So that's kinda cool! Hope they like it!
@FranklyGreenBay 8:08pm – All those curtain closings and openings at the beginning of the show? Oh yeah that's me. Getting my arm workout in, as per usual.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:09pm – How about that opening video scene?! Happy Days reruns on tv land = my childhood. However, I'd NEVER seen an episode of Laverne and Shirley
@FranklyGreenBay 8:09pm – So I had to do some research to figure out who I was when Frank told me I was gonna be Shirley from Laverne and Shirley.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:11pm – Fun fact: I always try to incorporate something polka dot into my costume. When I found a polka dot scarf, I had to get it.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:26pm – In tonight's show - I sat down too quick in my orange chair and almost tipped completely over. So that was a fun little adrenaline rush.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:32pm – I think the band's costume is my absolute favorite of all time in this show. So cute. Haha.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:33pm – I didn't realize frank was talking in an accent during our rehearsals. I thought he just had a sore throat.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:34pm – The Sugar shack dance by the guys is one of my favorite scenes to watch!! Looking dapper!
@FranklyGreenBay 8:37pm – The Mr. Base Man song I sing with Tom was a STRUGGLE to learn. Holy cow that's a lot of boom da da booms.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:38pm – And I love my song "Today I Met The Boy I'm Gonna Marry" because of Father of the Bride. Great film. Great soundtrack.
@FranklyGreenBay 8:57pm – Well the audience seems to be enjoying it so far! Lots of laughs and cheers. Always a good sign
@FranklyGreenBay 8:59pm – Intermissions are for set changes and costume swaps. Up next is the fair scenes! I only have one song in 2nd act, so my big stuff is done!
@FranklyGreenBay 9:10pm – The Mr. Lee song and dance seriously makes me get out of breath. And I run, a lot. Endurance is kind of my thing. Haha. Fail.
@FranklyGreenBay 9:14pm – Michael may have to wear a gypsy princess belly shirt in this show...but let's not forget the time Frank had me wear a fat suit in a show.
@FranklyGreenBay 9:19pm - The backup vocals for "I know a place" are my favorite in this show. I could sing this over and over and over again.
@FranklyGreenBay 10:09pm - 7th son might be my other favorite song in this show! I look forward to that one every night.
@FranklyGreenBay 10:36pm - Another performance in the books! Until next time!
