Taking on the character

I've been working on learning the songs for The Music Man. One of my main songs, Trouble is a major tongue-twister. As we drove to Abilene today, Erin and I worked on it for over an hour.

But learning these songs is helping me take on the character of "Professor" Harold Hill. His real name is Greg and he's a con-artist who is planning on taking money from the stubborn Iowans of River City. He's a slick charmer who wins a new girl in every town. Of course, the girl in River City steals his heart and he does a 180.

If I think about it, it's not that hard to get in character. A scheister who is just after people's money; isn't that the job description of a pastor?

Thanks, I'll be here all week...
