My first director, Steve Terrell, is someone special. (Steve was a busy movie and television actor in the 1950s and early 1960s, starring in many films, as well as roles in many popular television series, including one of my old favorites, “Maverick.”)
Steve and his troupe stop by my place. Steve says, thrilled with the prospect, “Rick, we want to start a traveling troupe we call ‘Lamb’s Players,’ – LP’ for short. We understand that you have some theater experience. Can you share with us some acting parts and plays you’ve been in?”
I list my plays and admit, “I have to say I think my acting talents are modest, at best.”
Excitedly, Steve says, “We’d still be pleased if you would read for us.”
So, I audition for LP, and to my surprise, the troupe accepts me.
