Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Performance mishaps

We did 4 shows a day in one weekend at a newly organized Medieval  Faire 
outdoors. This was after Katrina, when nature was still trying to adjust  to 
the shock. I had gone out to the site, and selected a place under a tree, so  
that we would have shade all day; otherwise, we would have expired from the 
 heat. Of course we were in costume. 
What I did not anticipate was that untold thousands of caterpillars hatched 
 in the area, and there was a non-stop drizzle of caterpillars on our 
theater,  our pavilion, our puppets, and me. While we did shows that required me 
to play  hurdy-gurdy outside the theater, I was continually having 
caterpillars falling  on me and walking on me. The audiences, which sit fairly close, 
often felt  obliged to step up and brush me off, because it bothered them 
so much. I just  had to ignore it. They weren't stinging me or anything. 
Guess I must be grateful  they did not climb on my face much.
