I started with Eddie May Mysteries in February of 1995; since 1999 I’ve been calling myself…er acting as the companies Production Manager. Over the past several years there have been many, many, shows and events worth mentioning; like the time in a show called RCMPuleeeze Dan Lajoie was playing the character of Red Serge and graced the stage with his version of Bruno meets Jean Guy the fry guy of Gatineau. After Dan dropped to the stage floor during his death scene I came running out with the stretcher to place his dead carcass on; it just so happened that there was table of 10 ladies celebrating a bachelorette party stage to the right of where Dan’s body lay. While lifting him onto the stretcher I proceeded to grab him at the midsection of his tightly fit spandex dance pants and lifted straight up. Well, when the filthy deed was done and Dan was about to be carried out for his final ride I looked down to see him convulsing with laughter I then looked around to see what was UP and what to my surprise arose such a clatter was I had just shown the table of bachelorette ladies Dan’s sweaty untrimmed red serge! I had not only grabbed his pants but the dance belt as well. We do advertise our shows as great for bachelorette parties… and on this particular night there was no detesting our promise! All we could do was laugh our way off stage and out the door leaving the rest of the sold out crowd – except for that lucky table of ladies – perplexed as to what had just happened.
