Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Why are people so mean?

Maybe many of the teachers had been up to 12:30 am like me watching  
so getting up to go to school at all was a chore.
Or were you in a  red state?   Our school faculty was tired but happy.
No excuse for rudeness.

Hi All;
     Sorry but I have to vent a little. We had a lousy day. We had a  
show today but the audience was lousy (also a puppet lost his head in  
middle of the show)  and when we got home we got a nasty e-mail from a
school we performed at this week. What's up with people??????
     To be more specific we did our show The Last Dragon , a show about
dealing with prejudice & intolerance on Wednesday, the day aftyer the
election. We are all happy that morning with the news of our new  
but the feeling left when we got to the school. Teachers were grouchy  
eyeing us like we had the plague. The Stage we were to perform was not
cleared, no one seeme to know we were coming and the teachers acted  
like out
show was wasting their time. But believe it or not the kids were  
great and
we had 2 awesome shows.
     So we were suprised that in the e-mail our sponser said that the
teachers thought that the intolerant character played by our Wizard  
was "too
intolerant" and that he said "bad words "like "nincompoop".
     Why is that word suddenly bad??? I always thought of it as  
funny, it's
not like after a show kids go around and threaten each other with  
that word.
It's even used in a funny part of the show . Why do people think that a
villian shouldn't act like a villian!!!!!
     I'm sorry as I said I needed to vent it's just I'm tired of stupid
people who come to a show just to rip it apart.
