white everywhere...

Hey folks, It's nothing but snow, snow, and more snow here in Cambridge lately. In soite of the that the december news letter just went out and we had the first rehearsal for Alice in Wonderland. I even have the pictures to prove it! Lets take a look at these now....

This is our own Deb the Shea once again. She was taking measurements of all the actors for the costumes she will be making. You can also see that we are at 29 cedar for the first readthrough. Mr. Rhodes likes to do this becasue it is a nice way to say welcome to our little fmaily. There is usually some food and post rehearsal refreshments... and this time there were Christmas treats! It looks like The Shea will become our offical Costume Mistress in residnce in the new year. You will be able to chek out her infor on the website. She is also selling some of her homemade goodies form her own website http://www.biemodesign.com/ . Check it out!

In this photo you can see everybody diligently looking at their scripts while the Dir. Ms. Waldron takes notes about who will be playing all the ensemble parts. The ansemble is very talented and I personally can not wait to see who will be playing the Mad Hatter and the Cat and all the other crazy charaters. You can alos see our talented Stage Manager Ms. S. D. Wolf. That's just fun to say... Ms. Wolf. HA! There is only one more rehearsal before the holiday break and then the cast will be back for January. You will be able to see some of the artwork at the Coolidge pretty soon! Keep looking iof you are in the area!
Here is another quick shot of the cast getting cozy on the futon. Alos we keep checking the website for updates. We hope to start revamping it little by little as the new year dawns. It just happens to be going just about as slow as the Big Dig. Lucky for us it costs less and is not life threatening. Mr. Vinnie, and Mr. Rhodes are trying to work it out. For those of you who haven't noticed Mr. Vinnie is Makeshift's new Company Manager and is doing a bang up job with all the responsibilites. Plus he is also on WoW so we set up a connection in the office. HAHA I am so glad Mr. Rhodes only checks the blog everyother month or so...
Merry Christmas everybody.... Or what ever holiday you choose to celebrate! Be careful in the snow!

Who is excited about Wonderland...

Sorry it's been a while but there have been a few things going on. Mr. Rhodes had surgery so we were all making sure he was doing well. The good news is while he was on the drugs the day after I talked him into ordering the new lap top which should be here this week!!!! that means more video! I know you are excited!

Tomorrow is the first day of Alice auditions. We have around 50 people auditioning for Alice in Wonderland and we are very excited. That's a big audition! I may swing by and take some pictures.

In the mean time I better get back to making my Christmas shopping list.

I hope all of you have been nice!

OH, and Mr. Rhodes is fine, although he is wondering why on Earth he bought the new laptop. hahah SHHHHHH! That's our secret.
