It was back to the theatre today. I knew they were doing some costume fittings and I wanted to be there for it. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting, not really sure I knew what to expect, but still, I did get to see some of the ideas.
Here are all the possibilities for the ladies. All the dresses, most of them originals from the 1950’s, are hanging here in the dressing room. Sizes will be worked out and then which dress will suit which one.
I didn’t really get any other photos of the costume fittings. I did, however, take a lot of shots today from backstage, so I have photos for you today from a perspective that only the actors and backstage crew ever really see. I am not going to talk about them, so here they are.
This last picture is Paul, the director, going over notes with everyone on stage during one of the breaks. It was a long rehearsal today, but I think they got a lot done. I have now seen almost all of the play.
I won’t be going back for almost two weeks now. I am going to wait until books are down and they do a full run. There will be a lot more of the set done as well. I hope you have enjoyed this different view of the play. I might do more of this, especially when the stage manager is back stage directing it all.
I am also going to put up some extra photos on facebook, so look out for them.
