At the beginning of May my drama class put on the second production the school of ours has ever seen. Working at a Math, Science, and Engineering school means less attention to the arts....until I came along. Last semester was a modern version of Much Ado About Nothing set in a high school. This semester we did a 1940s/feminist version of The Taming of the Shrew.
I didn't have much money for costumes, but thanks to my awesome friend Eleanor (she has an etsy shop!) I got some awesome headbands and the rest of the costumes just kind of came together. I also taught myself the first things about stage make-up and bought the stuff to do the classy 1940s look with stage foundation (so different than what most people use on a regular basis) and lots of other cool tricks! I think it turned out pretty well.
The cast and crew of The Taming of the Shrew!! A Success!
