Performance Poems

Palm Beach Improv by Suzae Chevalier

JimAtkinsMeImprovfirstmet

Melodie adores Stevie D
she compliments his style of dress to a T.
She has the memory of going to City Place

Stevie goes on the Improv comedy stage

Stevie does comedy and entertains.

Melodie laughs with Jimmy Dean-

it’s a funny act but not very clean!

 

Then Jimmy is next to go on stage

his act is funny it’s all the rage.

Melodie laughs at comic Jimmy Dean-

it is one funniest acts she has seen!

 

Melodie is next–

she is with Razel puppet and me.

Lighters light up in the air

wild whistling everywhere

Razel yells without a care

“You know why I have no pupils?”

right before Melodie can jump in-

Razel has finished her line with her evil grin.

People are shocked and don’t know what to say

they were roasted by an evil puppet

who laughs away.

Lights go out and Razel starts to shout

I bow with the girls before I walk out.

What a time in 2005

where the Improv Stage comes alive.

Sharing the stage with Stevie D, Jimmy–

Razel puppet and Melodie!

Melodie is then to be seen

she is with Razel puppet and me.

Lighters light up in the air

wild whistling everywhere

Razel yells without a care

‘You know why I have no pupils?

‘ right before Melodie can jump in-

Razel has finished her line and committed the sin.

People are shocked and begin to talk.

Lights go out and Razel starts to shout

I bow with the girls before I walk out.

What a time in 2005

Sharing the stage with Stevie D, Jimmy, Razel and Melodie.

Nanny Days

KrendollPartyArtShowMpls

Loading my van with a ton of toys

bringing it to play with for the girls and boys.

Razel and Melodie doll and Sabrina the smallest of them all.

I also bring my props for my birthday show

Children watch as UniCandle unicorn’s horn becomes aglow.

Now children blow out the birthday cake

made out of cardboard; it is fake.

That doesn’t bother them none

they decorate it with beads, they have so much fun.

Now Razel puppet always tries to ruin the party

She shows up late always, tardy.

Children set traps for Razel, so she will go

Away from the fun of the birthday show.

The stories ending always turns out for the best

Razel is kicked off Krendoll island she didn’t past the test.

Robert Santiago Likes My Act…Candice West Photographs

MiamiHeraldSuzaeChevalier

Comedy Cruise Lines judges had eyes on me–

performing with Razel not Melodie.

Miami Herald photographer Candice West

took photo that was in color, not like the rest.

Interviewed by the Miami Herald that day

Robert Santiago like what Razel had to say.

At the Improve Comedy Club in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel

I got to make the judges laugh and Razel did quite well.

I told Robert, “I live my life on the edge–

I look forward to this” Enough said.

Robert Santiago emailed me later that day–

said “You are off the chain–

Thanks Robert, improv is what I do–

my act never the same!

LAKE WORTH LIBRARY READING

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASun shining brightly in the sky

Jim is watching with keen eye.

For he notices props set up for audience to see

used in “Sarah’s Special Birthday” reading.

Palm Beach photographer shows up soon

taking photos at high noon.

Children wear costumes with wands in hand

bringing magic to Krendoll land.

Melodie pops out of box

she is happy with no socks.

Now Razel doesn’t show her face

Happy story — she has no place.

Then UniCandle unicorn lights the cake

making children anticipate–

for there is magic in the air–

will Sarah Star receive her present

with moon beam glare?

Happy ending does unfold

Sue Chevalier the storyteller just had told

A rhyming poem with characters with special powers

This all happened within an hour.

Books where signed on the spot

along with photos that where shot

to capture the happy memories

of this day in Lake Worth city.

THE LAKE WORTH HERALD

LakeWorthHeraldSueChevalier

The Lake Worth Herald records events in Lake Worth town

Mark Easton works hard making sure Lake Worth Herald paper gets out.

It’s Wednesday afternoon and the printing press is running

all of Mark’s stories are real life, serious and also funny.

The Lake Worth Library had an article on me

with UniCandle unicorn and doll Melodie.

It was November 2006 and I was on Lake Worth Herald’s cover page

sitting on birthday chair where children celebrate their age.

Lake Worth Herald is printing my new poetry book

-the one you are reading- soon also on the Nook.

Mark was gracious and helped get my book right

he is friendly and easy to work with editing my book to make it out of sight!

For it has a glow in the dark cover

it is different not like any other.

Thanks Mark for your kindness in working with me

it was a pleasure working with you and also a

“Thank You” from my doll on the front cover Melodie!

BIG BEAR LAKE 1999

BigBearLakeSmile

Wearing pink high-heels on stage

I performed with Melodie at Big Bear Lake.

Wearing a pink costume with headband on my head

Melodie spoke also for she  lead

the story that made birthday wishes come true–

UniCandle unicorn would light the Krendoll cake for you.

Audience member said that he was on the edge of his seat

He imagined a magical land that could turn into a LSD trip.

Yes, UniCandle unicorn could do anything that day

but I wanted to give Sarah Star a “Special Birthday.

Luckily I had this performance recorded on tape

it turned out pretty good even though I stayed up late.

Stayed up late, with no sleep, I was so scared I couldn’t even count sheep.

My act stood out from all the rest for I was the only with a doll closed to chest.

Also, I was one of the few from the Midwest, I can attest.

SUNDAY SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

SuzySunfest 261

Children can’t wait to celebrate–

with the Krendoll magical cake.

They dress in costumes that

are colorful indeed–

they dress up like a princess

or a elf with beads.

They each have a puppet in their hands,

they act it out on Krendoll land.

The room was a full of fun

the adults upstairs did hear

never before all this cheer.
