YOU CAN STAND ANOTHER SUMMER STOCK POST, RIGHT?
The weekend of July 16-17th was the closing shows for PSST 2016. Here's the last batch of photos. On to Fall Semester.
We had a wonderful cast and crew, so many talented kids! I wish them all the best of luck in their future endeavors. As always, the production photo were taken by Genny Muncy and the backstage ones are by the people in them.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 208
Still have a touch and go internet connection. The company is coming by tomorrow to check everything. They keep calling about the appointment. Yes, come out.
What do you think of this naked doll? Male? Female? Who cares? Probably from the late 40's. Painted on hair and shoes, because bare foot is just wrong!
I've probably collected enough photos for another PSST post. Backstage hi-jinx and some show photos. We had an awesome season this summer. No clue as to next summer's shows. Looking forward to hearing about that. I'm still in organizing mode. It never ends.

BEAUTY and THE BEAST CLOSED TODAY
Here are some show photos, which were taken by Genny Muncy
Belle and her father (Megan Wheeler and John Payonk)
Belle and Gaston (Jonathon Brian Furedy)
The company singing "Gaston"
Babette (Sarah Wildes Arnett) Lumiere (Olin Davidson), Maurice, Chip (John-Laurent Dean), Mrs. Potts (Ashlee Dutson) and Cogsworth (Alejandro Gutierrez)
Yep, that's a real little boy in the teacup. He has a bench to sit on while his in the teacart.
The Beast ( Payton Crim) and Belle.

Mrs. Potts, Babette, and Madame de la Grande Bouche (Heather McCall)

A friend's little girl loved meeting Belle. We have a fancy new curtain to take photos in front of. The other side says "Valdosta State Theatre and Dance)
I took some backstage costume shots. How does an actor wear a chest of drawers? And sing and dance in it?
It's built around a harness and wooden frame work, and lots of padding. The clock that Cogsworth wears is made the same way.
Here it is, resting between shows.
Mrs. Potts teapot costume just hanging around.
When the chest of drawers turns back into a human, she wears this, which was too big for the cubby and needed it's own space.
Tomorrow is the last show of the season, then strike and on Monday all the out of town cast and crew will be gone. It's also a sad time when that happens. We had a very good season this summer, lots of sold out or almost sold out shows and a good, hard working company. It's hard to believe that in a month fall semester will start and I'll be working on 3 new shows.

Where was Weird Doll Wednesday? Pick one:
1: I'm lazy
2: internet connection issues.
Yes, internet connection issues. All day yesterday. We thought it was fixed, guess not.
I'm posting this from my work computer which is why there are no photos. All my photos are on my home computer.
Fingers crossed that this problem gets fixed today.
Until next time.

ONE WEEK LEFT, HERE'S SOME PHOTOS FROM THE SEASON
First up (the second show) RING OF FIRE. It's called a "jukebox" show because it's 31 songs that Johnny Cash either wrote or made famous.
Here's the rest of the cast from left to right: Payton Crim, Chance Wall, Olin Davidson, Ashlee Dutson, Megan Wheeler, Heather McCall and Alejandro Gutierrez.You may remember Megan as Mary Poppins from 2014. And Olin played Bert in that show and last year was Scuttle in The Little Mermaid.
ACT II, after fame and fortune.
The third show is Nice Work...If You Can Get It. It's a collection of Gershwin songs strung together as a love story involving a playboy, a female bootlegger and her gang, an anti-booze Duchess, her bother a Senator, his daughter the playboy's girlfriend and a Long Island estate. Hi-jinx abound
Hope you enjoyed a tiny glimpse into summer stock. I'll try to get some more photos from Nice Work. Next up Beauty and the Beast.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 207
Let's take a break from those GoT dolls.
Just got back from a short vacation. It was CRAZY HOT. Stay inside and binge watch TV shows with your best friend hot. We did get to a couple of thrift store ( take that weather!) Didn't find much, but it was fun.
