This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

~Gilbert & Sullivans Pirates of Penzance at The Playhouse and Some Kind of Wonderful Quilt~


After rehearsing for the last few months away from our local Theatre we are finally into the Theatre now and set construction has begun!


Directed by Barbara Gellatly
Musical Director Linda Oxley





The  'working' table


Here are some of the jackets to be used for the Chorus of Police of which I am part of
See the one with the purple and gold braid......that's my jacket!


Some of the Daughters' Costumes


The very talented Jimmy Roe in the Lighting/Sound Box
Jimmy is going on to study Musical Theatre next year and I'm sure he's going to make it one day
GO JIMMY


3 'highly nervous police'


And just to get back to Quilting now above is a pic of the Some Kind Of Wonderful Quilt by 
Anni Downs made by Fiona at my Needlework Group


It's just gorgeous Fiona and I can't wait to start my one using the Some Kind of Wonderful fabrics by Anni 
And Chooky I'm getting there......nearly finished the last block of my Gardener's Journal Quilt.

I don't know what's going on with my email
several times I have tried to get back to people who have commented and I just can't open them up
I'm going to keep trying so I will get back to you eventually!

Sounds busy and creative at your place! Good luck for your performance. Fiona's quilt is so lovely. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see them all together at the end of the stitch along.

DZINTRA!

I am so happy to know you are discovering the joy of singing in the chorus! I will always cherish those days that I acted, danced and sang on stage. AND AS I SEE YOUR PHOTOS again, the one of the three gentlemen poking their heads around the corner is just so endearing. ANYONE, at any age, can learn so much from the team work and individual discovery of hidden talents via the theatre!

Ooooo...you are really going to have fun with this one! Cheers for Gilbert and Sullivan!!! Anita

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

And I AM LOOKING FORWARD to hearing more about this theatre piece my dear! THANK YOU for visiting!!! Anita
