Show Updates

I’m feeling good about Momotaro and I’ll tell you why.

  • The script draft is done.
  • The schedule is created.
  • Only three puppets are up in the air about being ready to rehearse with: Green Oni, Monkey and Bird.
  • I have two more volunteers to help build props and sets; one from Greenwood Faire and one from the puppet guild—did I mention I love my guild? Why? Networking!
    A new builder joins us

  • I like the number of people who have told me they are coming to the Aki Matsuri to see my show. Mom has told a ton of her friends and my parents-in-law are flying down from Alaska for it.
  • As for the needed 4th puppeteer, I still don’t have one. But my first choice is consulting her schedule and the way she has been talking, I think the answer will be yes.
  • I went to Daiso the other day and I came across two more props there that I won’t have to make.
  • 3 out of the four human puppets have hair…and I’m pretty happy with the way the main character’s hair turned out—although at first he started rather shaggy. He ended up with less than half the bangs he started out with, in fact.
  • Let’s see, what else…the president of the Aki Matsuri came up with a nifty idea of a photo collage showing how the show was put together from the start. As you know, I have all the pictures already…plus it makes me feel like this show is even more professional. The Seattle Rep does stuff like that, you see. There are always pictures and sometimes drawings and designs from costumers or set designers.

Don’t you feel happier knowing all that too?
