Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

Getting started on "Macbeth"

The big project of the theatre season for me will have to be "Macbeth". I've done some Shakespeare with this director before but he's always put a peculiar twist on it; mostly by setting it in a different time. He's staying traditional with "Macbeth" though and I'm excited to be doing a late-medieval-with-liberites-taken kind of style. I'm seeing alot of faux leather, heavy upholstery, breaking out the crown pattern I've always wanted to use and a few gallons of fake blood. Coolness!

Doubly excited because my youngest child auditioned for the first time for this and was given a role as a Macduff child. She plays a boy, which suits her to a 'T' since she prefers to act and dress as one anyway, and is tickled that she gets to be murdered. And to think I was happy when I was cast as Jan in "Grease" because I got to eat Twinkies...

I have quite a bit of fabric to start with and we will be renting some pieces because we don't have the space to store what we make (drat!). Pictures soon-
