Cheryl Cashman as Mrs. Pudge on the Dini Petty Show (1991)
(from the Yukon)
A clip from Cheryl's live theatre performance at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre.
Geraldine is a wealthy Rosedale matron
who desperately wants to realize her lifelong dream of
going down to the Brunswick and singing on amateur night and singing.
Geraldine: "My life is a spectator sport.
I want to get right in the middle of it!
I want to get my hands dirty!
I want to squeeze it between my fingers like clay.
I want to rub shoulders.
I want to take the bus.
I want to dance in a room crowded and smelling of others of my kind and say,
Yes! we're here together on the same night, dancing to the same music
and Yes I love the laughter in your eyes!"
