|Drawing for farmhouse flat.|
We're getting down to the wire for the Tales From Norway show that opens next Thursday at St. Phillips. Man! It's fun though. Pammy and I love theater. There's nothing like putting up a show whether it be play, variety show, puppet show, etc.,. We enjoy the process of seeing the show develop through rehearsals where, after the actors learn their lines they can start having fun with their roles.
Then there's the sets, costumes ans props: In this case we've got a good variety to work on from a troll bridge to a farm house flat and masks and bacon too. Only in theater. This particular show reminds me a lot of the time Pammy and I were working at the San Antonio Fine Arts Center, putting on children's plays and melodramas and where wearing different hats was commonplace. We practically lived in that place. Good times and good memories.
This past weekend I participated in the Art Slam at the White Rabbit and sold a painting. Very nice! Next time around I'll be better prepared. I'll definitely bring a chair and table, some finished art to sell along with my auction piece and a better lighting system. I understand the next theme is martial arts. Lot'sa ideas for that.
This kids finished there dance camp this week ans we got to see a mini-performance this afternoon showing off what they'd learn during the course of the week. In addition to learning dance routines in ballet, jazz and modern they also got to try their hand at sewing too. That's a good theater and life skill. We're very proud of their accomplishments.
