Music in the Air Photos

Some lovely photos from last weekend's performances of Music in the Air.  We sang to a sold out house Saturday evening, a full house Sunday, and both standing ovations.  The benefactor of the show, Harry, had seen the original production on Broadway in 1934 gave a sweet curtain speech with the most important part hitting home for the actors and the audience: "please be sixteen again with me tonight and enjoy the show."

A special thanks to the George Williams College photographer and cast member Amy Norton O'Donnel for the fabulous photos.

Music in the Air: Hair and Makeup Inspiration

Lots of times costumers, or the makeup artist (hair/wig designer in large theatres) will have sketches, ideas about hair for you.  Sometimes, they leave it up to us to decide, so I've done a little research for young hair styles in the 30s and late 20s.  (Small towns, country towns, were sometimes behind, although I think Tila is a stylish gal in her own way...that or copying her BFF.)

Photos from: Squidoo, Absolute Astronomy, Warez for You, Immortal Empherma, Rick Steve's Europe, Chelsey

Show opens one week from today!  More info here.

A sign pointing us to the artistic director's house. 
She hosted the final sing thru at her home ... followed by a pool party!

Then today we started staging rehearsals and a read thru in the gorgeous Ferro Pavilion.
