~Willy Wonka~

~for some reason~i am not able to get any pictures to post~today~So, i must rely on the written word today~

~So~ another 10 days or so have passed since my last post~Must mean I am painting another set~

~I have been~ this one is for the Christian Youth Theatre~"Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory"~
~I truly love working with this theatre~all the actors are children, ages 5or6 to 18~And, if you are a parent with a child in the show~you are committed to work on the set in one way or another~building,painting,costumes,promotions,props,set changing during the show~then they have fund raisers, auctions,selling concetions & crafts~& so much more~
~I am completely blown away by these wonderful parents, who happily, mind you~they really do seem to be enjoying themselves~give up like 5 to 6 Saturdays in a row~plus they come in on Thursday & Friday nights from 6-9, to work on these sets.~
~I was hired to guide them in the painting of the sets.~Some have painting skills, most do not~
~But, no worry's, they happily take on any task I give them and are genuinely pleased to learn about the scenic painting process.~And~ they do an amazing job.~Everything is looking fabulous~
~And~this is a BIG,BIG show~designed by Arther(don't know how to spell his last name,I will add it later)~so, a BIG set, with lots of fun stuff~"Very Wonka"~Arther, has been there side-by-side~ working with everyone.~It really is an ultimate in family fun.~Seeing everything come together~Very satistying~& one of the things I love about working in theatre~
~BUT~ these parents~ REALLY AMAZING !!!~
~Willy Wonka, opens this coming Friday~
