Dress rehearsal and passport pics

Last night was the first real dress rehearsal for "Once Upon A Mattress". It was great to sit and watch the show this time.

The set looked good and while it doesn't look so great in this picture, the screen titles worked really well throughout the show (with the exception of some technical glitches).

This scene is in Winnifred's dressing room.

 Here you can see the finished bed onstage with the queen (who is a fabulous actress!).

Here's a slightly blurry shot of her with the wizard.

This is Phoebe (in red) and Naomi onstage during the "Swamps of Home" scene.

And here's Chloe in one of two costumes she wears during the show. Tonight is the invited dress rehearsal, which means there's an audience for the first time.... Wish them luck!

I recently realized that the kids passports are expiring in June.  I can't believe it's already been five years since this post!  Anyway, our family got passports back in the days that you could cross the border with just a birth certificate.  If I just let them run out then we can't wander down to Mexico on a whim anymore, so instead of the expensive passport books I'm going with the passport cards for the kids.  I just got their pictures done today....

(For security reasons they're distorted and small )

These came out better than the last ones though.  Probably because I told them to ignore the rules and smile anyway!

Thanks Iris! I'm happy with how it came out and SO relieved to be done. :)

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
