Well, after a nice long break, I am back touring with my friends in “The Billy Goats Gruff”! Today was out first day back, and we had a great time performing at the Steinway Piano Gallery! (I know my friend Anne, our wonderful accompanist was happy to play on one of those beautiful pianos!) You would think the show would be little rusty after not doing it for three weeks, but that was not true at all! we all did a really great job, if I do say so myself. I was so happy to finally be back out there among all my fans, I sure missed it while we were on break (though I admit I did enjoy the R&R).
Last time I posted I promised you all I would tell you about our lovely costumes.
Here at the Florentine we are lucky enough to have a wonderful costume designer named Karen. She decided what all of us should look like. Then she either bought or made the costume pieces so we would all look perfect! She made me in all pink because that’s my favorite color, and because my BEST friend in the show, the other Lucy, wears pink and I want to look just like her! And on top of all that we also had a wig designer named Dawn who made beards for my co-stars to wear. They are each a little different, and make them look just like real Billy Goats.
Before I go today, I want to let you know that on this leg of our tour we have a lot of public performances that you can come to, if we aren’t coming to your school. Next week Tuesday we will be at the Oconomowoc Arts Center for two performances. We will be at the New Berlin Public Library on Tuesday April 12th, the Schauer Arts Center on Friday April 15th, and the Brookfield Public Library on Saturday April 16th. There is much more information on our website www.florentineopra.org. You should really check it out. we would all be so happy to see you!
Well, I have to go. Must get my beauty sleep before our show tomorrow at Alexandar Mitchell Integrated Arts School.
