I used to be a costumer for live theater (thus the pervious posts). I have recently retired and blog about the crafty/fun/creative things that happen in and around our home. I still love to sew and will be posting some tutorials from time to time. I also love baking and cooking - yum.
Whew, it's finally up and running! The Music Man with Mesa Encore Theatre. What a great experience!!! The cast is fantasticly talented, the choreography is amazing and the music is brillian!! Of course, the costumes are really great too. Here are some pictures, more to come soon. If you don't have tickets yet, get them fast!! and tell a friend! Some fun things about the costumes... Carson had the brilliant idea of adding a different bird to each pick a little hat. So we did, and wow they are awesome! Since we just did the show in February, we wanted to make it a new, fresh looking, different experience and I think we did a pretty good job! Immediately we got busy making new costumes, and changing things on others. We went for brighter dress shirts on the men, and added more costume changes for most of the ensemble. I am pleased! We watched the whole show opening night last night and it was better than ever!
