~Melodrama at Mogo......I'm Dreamin' of a Lone Christmas~

Well haven't I been having a ball lately playing a Wench at the latest Melodrama at Mogo entitled 
I'm Dreaming of a Lone Christmas
Written by Joe Quigley
Directed by Barbara Gellatly
Musical Director Jimmy Roe

Held at the The Digger's Rest Hotel at the Original Gold Rush Colony at Mogo
I just love the setting here

one of the early Settler's Huts on the site

inside the Tavern where the Melodrama is set with Big Dan being Centre Stage

The multi talented Jimmy Roe being Felix Mendelsohn, Florence and Annabelle the Bar Girl

Hamming it up with Florence

and Annabelle

Introducing Hans (Walter) our Barman

James Walker (aka Whistler) and Mary-Anne

Big Dan Murphy (Brian aka Cowboy) and Smithy (Greg)

Last Rehearsal before showtime
Annabelle, Sebastian Bumstead (aka Foxlow, Devious Devil)
Molly (Mary'Anne's Mum.....Barbara)
Mary Anne (Janet)
Smithy and Hans

Posing in front of the roaring fire yesterday just before showtime

a moment with Jimmy

Gularbone (Colin) singing Holy Night

I even made some little wristy-cuffs

and a little choker round my neck topped off with an old ear ring
Wonder if these will qualify for OPAM (One Project A Month) Lol!!!!
