Strike!

Well, last night was my final performance as Peppermint Patty in our production of "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown"! I thought I'd share a few pictures from the show and strike and put them on the blog for posterity :)

 I put my hair up every night into a faux bob so I'd look more like Peppermint Patty. It wasn't easy let me tell you!
 Here I am with Linus and Shermy backstage :)
 The girls! Marci, Lucy, Patty, Frieda, and Sally!
Lucy and Patty!


After the last performance, we had strike and took down our set. Of course I had to don another 'Rosie' get up to get the job done! Strike is always a bittersweet moment. We are happy to have a break, but sad that the show is over! This was one of the fastest strikes I have been a part of. We tore apart that set like nobody's business! I mostly picked up screws and wood, and carried a few flats. I don't do well with the power tools....
 


 Yep, I still have my Patty freckles on my face! What will I ever do without my freckles now that the show is over?




I truly, truly loved each and every person in the cast and I hope I can do many more productions with the Sioux Empire Community Theatre! 

God Bless,

So fun to see pictures of your costume! It looks like it was a really fun show!

Haha, nice photos! I'm sure it was quite a challenge gathering all of your lovely hair into a bob, but you did a good job. And striking the set is always a tough moment. I miss those days when I did the spring play back in high school. Soooo many fun memories made with cast members :)

I love post-show pictures, hah. Doing hair for shows is always soo time-consuming. Not many theatres around here have wigs in the budget (and if they did, pin curls take me forever to do anyway, since I have so much hair), so finding the time is always difficult! You look adorable.

Oooh, I've always wanted to be in a play in my high school. In sixth grade all of us had to be a part of the musical, and I ended up playing Elvis haha. I still remember how fun it was--there's nothing like the feeling of a good performance--and am wistful sometimes for acting.

You look absolutely darling as Patty and I'm glad to hear you had a lovely time. The cast looks so close and your freckles are so cute!

I have nooo idea how you made that long hair of yours into a bob- your skills are ah-mazing. And I loved the behind the scenes peek into the show- it's so fun to see you with the other characters. And looove your hair-do with the head scarf- show us how to do that one in particular!

Charlie Brown is probably one of my favorite cartoons, there's so much wisdom in these series it's mind blowing :)
Adore you as Peppermint Patty! ^_^ looking just so cute!

Oh congrats on the show, looks like you really enjoyed yourself! And how did you manage to fit all your hair into that bob style, I always try to do it but to no avail!

Well hey there, Miss actor! Sounds like you had a great time overall at the show, though. Your hair does magical things and I'm pretty sure it's got a mind of its own. How EVER do you manage to put it up so many different ways? Magic hair, I says. MAGIC HAIR!

Those sunnies are so perfect... and I just like all th e things about your head in this post. Rose sunnies, pink lips, pink hair wrap! Your head is so supa stylish. :D!

Omg! You look so different with the faux bob. You look like a teenager. I can't even imagine where you put all that hair.

Also you in jeans is adorable.

That faux bob is just awesome! It looks like you had such a fantastic time!
