Let the Games Begin!
Just some... of the poppy hats waiting for their final tizzying!
Audition weekend has been and almost gone!
Final cast numbers are 60 players!
All 60 kids have been measured for costume sizing... and now the real work begins...
Princess has the job of creating
30! Poppies 24 girls/ 6 boys
6 Flying Monkeys
That the team want to be lit with battery pack LED lights sewn in to the costume! I just love a challenge!
28 Ozians but more specifically the 3 Manicurists/ 3 Beauticians/ 3 Polishers That I'll be designing and making the uniforms for...
Professor Marvel... Replete with Vest and matching turban
30 Munchkins! / Various including the 3 Lollipop Leaguers and The Coroner...
fortunately most of the munchkins will be dressed in costumes from previous productions with just a little tweaking...
Every kid in the Supporting cast has between 3 to 5 costume changes throughout the show!
So it will be Head down and Bum up from now to the end of July for this little Princess.
With somewhere near 200 individual costumes to source design and create I'll be hoping to co-opt some parental volunteers to assist me...
Wish me luck Darlings!
