I'm a Believer?



There's been a change in plans in the frantic last minutes leading up to the Rosetown Playouse auditions. While I know I'm going to sing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, I'm stuck on the poem/monologue I have to recite.

Unable to get past, "Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash," in 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, I've decided to go with what I know. I plan to recite the lyrics to a pop song. Given my vast knowledge of Beatles tunes, perhaps I'll pull a Peter Sellers and do Hard Days Night. I'm also toying with I'm a Believer by The Monkees (words and music by Neil Diamond, of course). Either way I plan to deliver the lines with feeling and "meaning" - should be fun!
