Well, today's your lucky day....right?
Yeah, I just really stink at blogging when I'm super busy. And I've been super busy. Once again...here's a list.
1. Did 3 rentals/shows in 2 weeks. I mean, I worked on them before, but they were all due within days of each other. Into the Woods Jr (We re-build almost everything for the Jr High kids), Seussical Jr and Alice in Wonderland (2 sets) for DramaDad's theatre class.

2. Built costumes for The Drowsy Chaperone. This was a full scale, larger budget production. It was really fun. I'll do an in-depth blog about them when I get better photos, but here's some of my fav's for now!

ADOLPHO! King of Romance

As you can see, it was quite an undertaking I coudn't have completed without Valinda or my husband, the shopper. Man, was I EXHAUSTED! I've never worked so hard, but man, was I proud! Check out a video of what an amazing show it was. HONORED to have been a part of it.

Oh yeah, one more time...the hottie in the white tux who's tap dancing and skating...that's the DramaDad, my amazingly talented husband.
3. I'm in a show! I'm a sub for Shades of Sinatra that plays at a local hotel/casino. I've gone in 3 times, all of them fun! I only have a bad cell phone photo for now, but it's better than nothing!
Check it out!! http://shadesofsinatra.weebly.com/ It's fun to sing some great standards like Wee Small Hours of the Morning, My Funny Valentine, Come Rain or Come Shine, The Best is Yet To Come, NY NY...it's really fun!
4. I'm in ANOTHER show! I'm doing a staged concert version of The Who's Tommy - the musical version. I'm playing MRS WALKER! It's a show I've loved forever and I get to costar with some amazing people. I'm thinking I'll document tomorrow night's rehearsal...with the BAND!!! (**This show is not for the faint of heart. It's all rock and roll with some pretty shady characters.) But it really explores some interesting territory and it's very fulfilling to actually play a mother and deal with a rather stressed marriage onstage. And sing rock music! Such a challenge, SOOO much fun! For my Vegas friends, playing at the Ovation Room in Green Valley Ranch on Tuesdays during August - the 9th through the 30th at 8 pm. Contact me for tickets...only $15!
Well, that may not seem like a lot, but trust me, it has been! I'm working on costumes for 5 Guys Named Moe, but there are only 8 of them. So this month I'm trying to take some time with me kids, do some fun things. They were a little neglected the past two months while I was a costuming crazy lady!
Gonna get back to blogging.... :)
