I know some of you have been waiting for an update on the set of Steel Magnolias, the play I am in at Ilion Little Theatre. At least, I know any fellow cast-members who read my blog (DO my fellow cast members read my blog?) would like an update. Before yesterday’s rehearsal, I remembered to pull out my tablet and I took a few shots. I got more of the cast than the set, but, after all, isn’t it all about the people? I think it is.
Kim Darling and Kara Buttermore, who play Truvy and Annelle, were working on the set when I started to click. They immediately posed for me. I knew that would make a good photo, but I wanted an action shot. They offered me this scene from the beginning of the play:
Meanwhile, in the audience, Kaylynn Iglesias, who recently joined the cast as Shelby, consulted with Cindy Shepherd. Cindy, in addition to playing Ouiser, is assisting Rick Vroman in his directing duties. I had a little problem with my tablet getting this shot. I hope it looks OK.
Then I realized I had not gotten a shot of Kelly Stone, who plays M’Lynn. She and Kaylynn decided to do a mother/daughter shot.
Sadly, I did not get a picture of our awesome sound and light guy, Rick DeJohn, nor of our delightful director Rick Vroman. Perhaps in a future post.
I’ll close with a couple of shots of the set itself. More work will be done on the set tomorrow (I’m supposed to go help. Yikes! What a lot I have to do tomorrow!). I hope to include more photos in future posts. I’d better charge up the tablet. Happy Friday, everyone.
