Think about a summer job you had when you were in college. Would you want to do this job again, if you had the chance? This job might have been something like 35 years ago, but wouldn’t it be fun to go do it again? I’m going to get that chance. Well, my alter-ego, Willamae, is getting that chance.
My character of Willamae was created one summer that I worked at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. I was hired to perform in the saloon show and I loved every minute of that job. As a saloon girl, I sang, I danced, I served cokes and peanuts, I sold garters off my leg, and made memories with folks from everywhere that came to Branson to enjoy a vacation. I was employed by a wonderful family owned theme park that specialized in good clean fun. It was a dream come true. I had visited SDC as a nine-year-old girl and said “Someday, I’m going to work here.” And I did.
