You know that thing where you, personally, are an intense introvert, and you are living with one or more (okay, three) extroverts?  And, you do your best to support your extroverts in their extroverted activities, because, you know, you love and adore them, and you want them to be happy? 

Well, that's how I got involved in our local community theatre. After a few years of Thomas repeatedly asking to get involved in acting, we finally got him down to New London Theatre in Snelville for an audition, and he got the part of Tim in their modernized production of A Christmas Carol.  Thomas then got a part in their next production, Mad: The History of The Hatter, a fusion of Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz.  Then, at the next audition, David got talked into trying out, and ended up getting the part of Judge Danforth in The Crucible (Thomas will be apprenticing in lighting).

And that's how I ended up sewing costumes.  Three Puritan dresses with accessories.  Thank you, honey, for mentioning to the director that I can sew ;)

So, I started with the accessories ... caps, cuffs, aprons, and a collar.

  1. Ha, I feel your pain! Thank god my involvement was only props manager - trawling around charity shops for props is far easier than sewing :)
