Alright, so I finally have access to the net again! Yay! Wow there's been a lot going on since I last updated. I've been in Bigfork for almost a month and it's really been fantastic. I've been so happy! I know how pitiful and ridiculous it sounds, but I kinda forgot how much fun I used to have and how happy I was all the time. It's been such a healing process. I also decided that I'm going to stay the whole summer, so I get to run the shows too now as well as paint them. Oh it's going to be fun! We have the most fantastic cast this year, they're all sweethearts. There's a little group of us that was here last year and also the first few here this year that have become a separate little family. We had family dinners before eveyone else got here, and it was great. Everyone made something, we all cooked and sat down together, it was just like Thanksgiving. :) Anyway, it's been really great so far.
Right now we're two weeks away from opening the first two shows. "The Wiz" opens on June 6th and "Singin' in the Rain" opens on the 9th. As far as being built and painted, both shows are almost done. We have a few big things left to paint, but for the most part all the important stuff is done. My friend that designed the first two shows I think did an excellent job, and we've got some neat things in both of them. One of the things we have left to do is paint a translucent drop for Wiz. It's going to be solid when it's lit from the front, but when it's lit from the back you'll see a bunch of gears and cogs. I've never done a drop like that before and I'm really excited to see how it turns out. I'll be sure to post photos. :) Oh, and speaking of photos, if you want to see some silliness, this is the link to my Facebook photo album. I'll of course post photos here too.
Well, dinner break is almost over, but I just wanted to post and let everyone know that I'm not ignoring my blog on purpose, I just haven't had the internet access. :) I should be back to more regular updates and lots of pics very soon!
