I’m gonna die I just remembered that my junior year of high school the theatre department put on The Wizard of Oz, and while I got a callback for Dorothy the part I actually ended up with was an ensemble part. But not just any ensemble part, oh, no.
I was a Munchkin.
That’s right, sixteen-year-old Allie was a Munchkin. This is only humiliating when I add that they had a ton of ACTUAL LITTLE KIDS as Munchkins but decided that I, along with one other short girl, needed to be Munchkins too, to help wrangle the younger kids. Because of this secondary job, they called us Munchkin Mamas.
The reason this comes up is because I was just listening to John Denver’s ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ and I remembered the most important part of this story: that my dad changed the words of that song when he found out the whole Munchkin thing, and he sang to me, “West Virginiaaaa, Munchkin Mamaaaaaaa” literally every time I was in costume.
Now That’s What I Call Dad Music!or: music Richard Campbell Gansey III almost definitely listens to because he is an actual suburban dad who writes Beatles lyrics on maps of Virginia.
