Theater

End Of The Line…

Yesterday and Today I got back with the “Fanfare for Murder” Murder Mystery cast for two more touring shows. Next Friday and Saturday will be my last two shows.

Since getting my new job at the theatre, my schedule doesn’t allow for me to complete the other shows scheduled this year. 😦 It was a lot of fun though and I’ve still got two more to go.

Oh yeah, spoiler alert… I’m the one who dies.

Also, I stumbled upon this pic of Paul McCartney and wanted to share it… because I ♥ Paul! He makes me smile!

"Fanfare For Murder", Vero Beach, FL

Tonight, “Fanfare For Murder” officially kicked off it’s tour in Vero Beach, FL. The show went really well in spite of the very conservative crowd (the show has more than a few “colorful” jokes). There was really only one patron who had a formal complaint to make to our production manager, Becky. I also broke-in my new red pumps, which are a little hard on the feet; I didn’t trip or break my ankle though, so… success!

Our next 2 shows aren’t until the November.

Delicious Red Suede Pumps & Final Dress Rehearsal

When I bought my “Pirate Boots” earlier this month, I was told by the friendly sales associate at my local Shoe Carnival that if I returned within 30 days I could receive 1/2 off a second pair of shoes… I normally don’t shop at Shoe Carnival, because of poor inventory in the past, but I do quite like my “Pirate Boots” and 1/2 off is 1/2 off… so, yes, I went back to Shoe Carnival.

I was happy I did too, because I found these adorable Red faux-Suede Pumps by Delicious… My main motivation for shoe shopping today was to find a pair of heels to wear with my blue dinner theatre dress, but I will definitely wear these for more than just “Fanfare…” shows. And after my 50% off, I paid less than $13.


Tonight was our final dress rehearsal for “Fanfare…” We invited our friends and family to watch since the shows will be performed at various locations throughout the next year. The rehearsal wasn’t exactly awesome. There was a lot of confusion with our sound cues that we were working with for the first time tonight. But the cast is strong enough to bounce back from any set backs, which is a comfort. A bad dress rehearsal means a great opening night, so I hoping for the best on the 28th.

"Fanfare For Murder" Dress Rehearsal

Tonight, we presented, in front of this year’s fine arts scholarship students, our first dress rehearsal for “Fanfare For Murder” the Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre show that will be touring throughout the rest of 2010 and early 2011. Our first show, to be performed in Vero Beach, will be on the 28th. I tweeted the following pictures of the dress I bought on my shopping trip on the 14th and the shoes I borrowed from Kacie for the night.

The rehearsal was bit rocky… but we have a very strong cast. Anyway, here’s my costume:

I took this in the Black Box Dressing Room…
I had to stand on a table.

Strega Nona at The Lyric Theater


Today I worked wardrobe for a children’s musical “Strega Nona” based on the children’s book. I mostly steamed a bunch of the player’s costumes and made a few repairs. (Although, I was needed on headset stage left, briefly, at the beginning of each show, which I wasn’t expecting.) I had a lot of fun and I felt adorable (and quite comfy) in my outfit for the day.


The Navy Blue T was ordered from Forever 21 for like $4 or something.
I also ordered the Navy Blue beret from Forever 21. $2.50, I believe.
The Silver Satchel is Sag Harbor, which I bought at Ross for about $15.

I don’t know where I acquired my gray cardigan,
but it’s little pearl buttonsare my favorite part of it.
I wore my Navy Blue and White Polka Dot ballet flats.
I don’t remember where or when I bought these either
.

I found this clock necklace at Target yesterday! I love it! I just wish it actually worked.


Makeup: I used blue, gray and silver to accomplish my smoky eye of the day. I used an Almay Blue Eyeshadow Trio, Covergirl brown eye pencil and Maybelline Great Lash mascara in blackest black. I added a little shimmer with Mica Bella Mineral Cosmetics.


To accomplish the rest of my face for the day I used my Maybelline Pure Makeup Liquid Foundation and Maybelline Mineral Powder liquid concealer, as always, along with Covergirl powder.
