The Adventures Of The Daughter Of A Hollywood Actress - Act 1

 The Rosevine Cottage Girls. That’s me, or at least, I make up one-third of the trio. For the most part, I've been the behind the scenes girl, and that’s the way I've liked it. Don't get me wrong, I like to make people laugh, I just can't seem to be able to get my ideas from my head to paper or keyboard when I write. I always get a mental block, but I decided to give it a try, anyway so here goes. 

Who am I? I'm the Daughter Of A Hollywood Actress. I'm a California-born Tennessee raised cowgirl. I'm a lover of musicals and movies from old black and white to the modern and Hallmark and music from big band swing and the golden oldies to classical and Celtic. I also enjoy Pop music and B grade movies. What can I say I'm diverse. As well as well versed in music and movies from the 30's to present. I'm also addicted to Pinterest. I also love Biking, jogging, and horseback riding. Hmmm, I think that rhymed. 

My name's Brianna, and as I mentioned before, I'm the lesser known one. I have a way of and I quote "saying things only she could get away with" apparently. Like the time, we were out eating and I pointed out in a whisper that the woman a few booths behind my mom and sister looked like Newkirk (Richard Dawson) dressed like a woman in Hogan's Heroes.

The ending result, instantly making them erupt in laughter, just when the waiter came back for our dessert order. He could not figure out what was wrong with us. So instead of giving our order like a normal person I looked up at him, smiled guiltily and said hi. Luckily Cheyenne recovered enough to order hot apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and caramel sauce lightly drizzled over the top. Hey what can I say, she has good taste. 

I sometimes speak without thinking, obviously, as well as being slightly sarcastic, both of which well-laced with comic, sometimes dry humor. 

Did I mention that I am a drama student? Yes, I am a student of all things dramatic, comical and theater! Bring on the lights, the red carpet and the laughter... 

Ok, ok so I am just a homeschool drama student practicing on a church stage with about 20-30 other quirky/slightly crazy 'Doctor Who' loving students which I am proud to call my friends. 

And to answer your question yes I have been in something. Several Somethings. Name one? Oh alright, 'The Barber Of Seville'. Given I was about 5 and it was a spur of the moment. They needed someone to come up during the performance to sit in the barber chair through one of the songs. But I did have the entire crowd in stitches!!!! The barber massaged my head while singing the "la la la la la la la la la" part and I kept shaking my head and rolling my eyes.  

I've also been in two church productions of the life of Jesus, two children's choir plays, as well as starring in several home productions including a brilliant two girl production of "The Dog & With The Piece Of Meat", and a rousing rendition of Jesus's birth with me playing Joseph and my sister playing Miriam (Well, I called her that but really she was Mary- the mother of Christ and I would say, "Miriam!" and she would say, "Um, My name is Mary!") It ended when I as Joseph refused to die on screen and ran into the next room to die then came back pronouncing me dead. (Mom thought that was great by the way!) 

Now for the present...Next week I'm competing in the ESU National Shakespeare Competition as well as auditioning for a part in my drama class's next play "The Play That Went Wrong" and I'm also thinking about trying out for a Shakespeare song competition that my teacher and some friends from class told me about at some point. What do you think? Should I do it?

Busy week? You can say that again! Both the Shakespeare competition and my audition for the play were supposed to be this week but the class was canceled due to winter storm Jonas's untimely arrival, which is a good thing because I would have to of needed ice skates to get to school. 

Want to see my audition?

I will let you know how it goes next week. In the meantime, I'm going to hit the front hill and go sledding!
