Hey, guys, what's going on?!

O.K., fess up!

Are any of you either soap opera fans or employees (perhaps current or former contract players, day players, under-fives, extras, crew, executive staff, creative staff, or production office personnel)?

Anyone have any provocative "backstage at the soaps" gossip?

Details, please!

I just want to share this quote, and figured I'd put it here.

"I haven't done much that's too embarrassing while I've been sober. You do more embarrassing things when you're drunk. You end up meeting people in situations where everybody is well lubricated." - Josh Hartnett

ACT ONE

BARBARA'S L.R. 9:30 A.M. (SATURDAY)

STACY IS AT THE TABLE, CAREFULLY GOING OVER THE

NEWSPAPER PAGE BY PAGE. SHE IS LOOKING FOR WORD

OF THE HEMMINGS' ROBBERY AND FINDING NO MENTION

AT ALL. BARBARA COMES DOWNSTAIRS NOW, STRETCHING

LUXURIOUSLY.

BARBARA

Good morning.

STACY

(MUTTERS) Morning.

BARBARA

Once I managed to fall asleep I had good dreams,

fabulous dreams. I was on an ocean voyage,

imagine. Blue skies, a handsome captain. Tea at

eleven. (COMES OVER) What's the news?

STACY

(PRETENDS SHE ISN'T AS INTERESTED AS SHE IS)

Nothing much.

BARBARA

And what's the day? (GOES TO THE WINDOW, LOOKS

OUT) Blue skies. Just like my dream. (TURNS

BACK TO STACY) Did you have good dreams?

STACY

(LOOKS UP -- GUILTY FOR A MOMENT...THEN SHRUGS)

Just...dreams. I don't remember.

BARBARA

Mine was in color, this time. Do you dream in

color?

STACY

I don't remember. Sometimes, maybe...(STARTS AT

PAGE ONE ALL OVER AGAIN)

BARBARA

You're surely going to read the print off those

pages, Stacy -- what are you looking for?

STACY

Huh? (THEN QUICKLY) Nothing. Just...checking.

For Current Events. We have to bring in some

clippings.

BARBARA

(WITH DISTASTEFUL MEMORY) Oh -- those clippings.

I had a Miss Parminger for Civics -- and her slip

always used to show. Always.

STACY

Barb, doesn't a newspaper write up everything

that happens?

BARBARA

If it's printable.

STACY

Sometimes, this is a -- funny paper.

BARBARA

(WITH A LAUGH) You want to speak to my father

about it?

(THERE IS A KNOCK AT THE FRONT DOOR. MARQUISE IS

OUTSIDE HOLDING A LARGE ___________)

STACY

(GRATEFUL FOR THE INTERRUPTION)

Are you expecting anyone, Barb? Should I

answer it?

Mark, I think you're in the wrong place.

Soap opera-related posts are appropriate on either one of the two messageboards on this site.

They're appropriate as "off-topic" because soaps are not Broadway plays.

They're appropriate as "main" because soaps employ actors and actresses, some of who have done Broadway, are currently doing Broadway, or intend to do Broadway in the future.

By the way, if any of you are interested in the current minimum daily AFTRA scale on the hour soaps, here are the salaries:


PRINCIPAL .......... $799

UNDER-FIVE ........ $348

EXTRA ................ $136

Please, do. It adds to the tension, especially since we don't know what you're holding.

Am I a horrible, horrible person for thinking that "LARGE ________" is so dirty?
