Finally, here are some pictures from my latest theater production. I played Electra in Gypsy. By far, the funnest role I have played. She is a completely ridiculously over the top stripper. Her gimmick is that parts of her costume light up -- which explains the lights around my neck. If you are curious:
I LOVE the theater!
I love hanging out with the cast back stage...resorting to middle school games (MASH) to keep us entertained.
I love the bright lights that surround the make-up mirrors.
I love when some stars of the show aren't even human.
I love the flowers that adorn dressing rooms wishing luck from loved ones.
|The card reads, "you've been my star for 31 years." How sweet is that?!|
I love the wigs.
I love the make-up.
I love watching young people SHINE on stage.
I love warm-ups.
I love wearing vintage clothing.
I love the wonder and excitement of a child's first "big people" show.
I love when bright blue eye shadow and deep red lipstick become part of a daily routine...just for a few days.
|Oh! ... and fake eye lashes. I had never worn fake eyelashes before : )|
I love glitter!
|But, taking it off...not so fun.|
I love being transformed into someone that is SO COMPLETELY opposite of my personality. I love making people that I know take a second look at the program to make sure that really was Chris Rambo playing that part.
|Lights around my neck. Lights on my bum, and lights on my boobs. Yup...you read right.|
