And now, months later… Boy from Oz is almost ready!

Unless you’re smack in the middle of it, it’s hard to conceive how much it takes to put on a show… so many moving parts! Props, costumes, hair, makeup, lights, choreography, acting, directing… every piece takes hours, days, weeks, months.

I was in the green room, and there was Lindsay, working on the headpieces. For one song. She was glueing sequins and jewels and feathers onto cheap straw visors, and transforming them into beautiful showgirl headpieces. Just one tiny thing that takes hours, lasts minutes onstage — all for YOUR entertainment.

Yes, your! so get your tickets soon! These people want to make you smile, and it’s taking a lot of work to do so!!

(The fabulous costume designer asks that the beautiful work not be revealed before the show, so here’s just a taste.)
