Enchanted April


I went to the theater today to take pictures of the play they are working on - Enchanted April. It's a very sweet little play about a couple ladies who run away for a vacation to Italy to get away from their dreary lives and husbands, and end up finding their way back to them.


Most of the people in the play are our friends or at least people we've worked with before. My hubby was in charge of the set building. The first act is pretty simple, and black curtains on the back wall hide the second act set - an Italian courtyard with columns, pergolas, flowers, and a lovely mural one of our talented artists painted. Dave and I spent a lot of time (ok, mostly Dave, but I helped a few days) getting those columns mounted securely. It's nice to see it all done and being used.

I took pictures with my camera, but I'm still figuring it out, and I had some problems getting the exposure and color balance right. So I gave Dave my old camera to use and he took pictures at the same time. We ended up snapping about 1000 pictures between the two of us and whittled it down to under 200, and of those he only used about a dozen for the promo materials. Thank goodness for digital!



Dave has an upcoming play where he needed to have red hair, so he went ahead and had it colored - talk about a change! I should do a blog post of the 'many faces of Dave', he's always changing his looks for whatever play he's in!

That looks like fun! I like the storyline, too. I was a thespian in high school and loved the entire experience and people.

Dave's new hair color makes me smile. How many men are asking their wives to try a new look to zest up their relationship, and you've got your man doing it. It's like getting a new husband all the time. hehe!
