Snow White is open!

Another great show has survived our first week. Snow White opened this week at Carco in Renton. Now we have a light week and onto our next venue. So many little girls arriving in their Disney dresses for the shows. One lovely audience member today asked if I had played Laurie in Oklahoma this summer. She recognized my headshot. (No way she could recognize me underneath my green and purple eyeshadow, false eyelashes, red lipstick and warpaint blush) I told her yes, yes I was, and that Jud was out in the lobby if she wanted to say "hi" to him too.

Yesterday we went to the Corn maze in Snohomish, out for drinks, and to see Oliver. The day before was Little Shop of Horrors. Both had strong and weak moments, but were enjoyable productions.

Now I'm deep in the throws of costuming for Ghostlight. I've got a little under two weeks left 'til we open. I've been rather distracted, but now it's time to knuckle down and actually get going on construction.

It's fall now in Seattle. The weather is very cold at night and quite chilly during the day. Thanks to our dry summer we're having a lovely change of leaves instead of the usual sodden drop. I've changed my summer to winter clothes, and am enjoying wearing coats and scarves again.

Back to watching X-Men 2.

Lilith: Frasier, come in.
Frasier: I must be early, I see you haven't had a chance to put up
your hair yet.
Lilith: Oh, I thought I'd leave it down tonight.
Frasier: [surprised] Really?
Lilith: Yes, after several hours of careful deliberation, and
weighing all the consequences, I decided to be playful.

Another Openin'

I've been to see so many plays in the past few weeks. This last Friday I saw Enchanted April at Taproot. It was excellent. I loved almost every bit of it! (It was "My Kind" of play.)

Tomorrow I'm going to go see Zandi in Titus Andronicus. It's supposed to up the gore of Shakespeare's bloodiest play, so I'm a little wary, but it's always great to see a friend. Especially one who has been rolling around on the ground as one of Snow White's Dorfs all week.

Snow White is going well. We had our first costume fittings today, and I'm green from head to toe. My face has been superimposed over the Mona Lisa in the Queen's Throne Room, and I get to dance all sorts of Cha Chas, Tangos, and Flamencos. Hoorah.

Off to the homeless shelter for the night.
