I was one of the spiders.
Anyway, after the play, mom went backstage looking for me. I was maybe 8 at the time.
Mom: Nelli? *pushing through the crowds of people, trying to catch sight of me* Nelli?
Very Tall Guy Playing Gandalf: *steps in front of her, booms* I'M Nelli.
Mom: *startled* No you're not!
VTGPG: Well. *dignified* I could be.
