The Proof is in the Photos

    Thanks for your patience as I have been talking about little else but Bat Boy as we were in tech and finally open.  I saw it again last night - this time with an audience - it was great - the house was packed (about 450 people,  I would guess)and the audience primed to have a great time.  The actors were energized by the audience and the show was great!  Just so you know what I was talking about with blood and soot and fur, here are a few photos of the costumes to help you understand.

     The lighting was pretty saturated with colour, which, unfortunately, the camera washed out completely.  

        I think the toughest part of this show was that I decided early on there would be no red in any costumes so when we see blood it is that much more startling.  Do you  know what a popular colour red is for textiles?? I think it all worked out well.  I am going to miss this cast a great deal when this closes.  The actress playing Meredith is one of several who will graduate this May.  She and I have worked together on six shows and I couldn't find a nicer person to work with. Kari has beauty, grace, a lovely voice and an inordinate amount of acting ability.   While I know she will move on to a wonderful career, she will be missed around here.

Did I mention MORE BLOOD??
