Vote of the week: Being the audience volunteer in a show
Written by Robert Niles
One of my earliest theme park memories was being picked to be the freckle-faced kid on a cable car during a faux "Rice-A-Roni" commercial that was "filmed" on the Studio Tour at Universal Studios in Hollywood back in the early 1970s.Tweet
Apparently, I have a knack for getting picked for on-stage roles in Universal shows. Almost everytime I went to the old Alfred Hitchcock show at Universal Studios Florida, I got picked to play the role of "Mother." It got to the point where, one time, an employee was telling me where to stand and I burst out laughing. "I'm sorry," I told her. "But I've played this part four times already!"
I was expecting the Universal Police to swoop in a throw me out for the crime of multiple "Mother"-hood, but instead the employee just smiled, left me alone and split for a quick break.
So, that brings us to this week's vote:
