But at least the masks are FINALLY getting done!
We have a full layer over the noses now, after some experimentation with the clay-style papier mache stuff (FashMache, I think it’s called).
I’m ready to mix up a bunch of the stuff tomorrow, much wetter than today’s batch, and just use that as a final layer. Doing the paper shred version was a major pain. At the very least, I think that’s how we’ll finish the insides of the masks.
We still have one more to sculpt (the nose for the second Capitano mask), and I’ve got the casing for a bone in the last bodice to sew, but that’s going to wait until tomorrow morning.
All of which is to say, it’s finally time to start pimping the show.
Why, A Company of Wayward Saints, of course! What did you think I was talking about??? (http://www.o2b2.org/wayward/)
And while I’m pimping the show (opens July 7, runs through 7/22 – Friday & Saturday nights at 8pm, Sunday afternoons at 2pm, tickets $12/10 Seniors and Students – flyer online, feel free to print and distribute as necessary, et cetera, et cetera…), we could also use folks to help with the box office and concession sales as well.
We have two more rehearsals at Jo Rake’s house and then we move into the theatre.
Saturday night, Equus strikes. I’ll be at the theatre around 10:30, to make sure they don’t take down more set than we want them to. Sunday, we head over to Jo Rake and pick up all the set pieces, props and costumes and move them (lock, stock and barrel) to GAC. Then we construct the set and get about the process of making whatever adjustments will have to be made.
Monday will be our first rehearsal in the new space. YAY!!!
If you want to participate in the move-in process, or you’re willing to help during the run of the show as a house manager, usher, or box office assistant, PLEASE let us know ASAP!
Email to info at o2b2 dot org will do the trick!
Hope we’ll see you there, one way or the other!
