Why I love the Theater

The construction for The Music Man is coming along great. Neil designed a very ambitious set. This is a very phony baloney life I have, and sometimes I think that I am contributing nothing worthwhile to society. But the theater does make people smile, sometimes it makes them think and for just a while you can escape from this crazy world we are living in. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
This is the model that is created before construction starts, below is the scene shop and a piece of the set getting the finishing touches
And of course, my very favorite thing in the theater, the prop room. Every prop room ought to have a stuffed cat and some shackles, don't you think? It always amazes me what you can find in prop storage. Right now, I am trying to locate a 1912 camera with tripod and flash. Not looking too good so far. I made the 1912 newspapers and comic book today, they turned out pretty good. My pottery wheel taunts me every time I walk by it, I'll be back soon, I promise!

Thanks Jen for that comment. I'd be lost without it too! Of course the crazy fools I live with supply plenty of it around here!
