Waiting for Guffman
written by Christopher Guest & Eugene Levy
Corky St. Clair: I had been living in New York and working there as an actor and director and choreographer for 25 years or so and I really felt I needed a change. I imagined, in my fantasy I suppose, that when I came here I would have a completely different life. Perhaps, um, a construction worker or one of those guys that works on those high-wire things that, uh, with a hardhat. You know, that sweeping sort-of hat and uh, with the chaps. But that didn't really work out. I began to realize, I guess, that the theatre was still in my blood and what I had to do was make use of that. So I offered my services to the high school here and they accepted. And I began to teach drama and within about six months I had formed the Blaine Community Players.
