For this week’s Throwback Thursday Post, I looked in my Media Library at September 2019. I was gearing up for Fabulous and Fatal, the interactive murder mystery we presented to benefit the Herkimer County Historical Society last October. The box shown was an important prop in the story.
It was given to me by the cast of Leading Ladies, the play I directed for Ilion Little Theatre in 2016.
Drawing your attention to the costume worn by the “lady” on your far right, I just mention that it is a costume piece I have owned many years and used many times.
I wore the caftan to be a silly wizard for an event for the March of Dimes in May 2018.
Once again, I was associated with some wonderful people. This is the thing when you go to do anything theatrical: theatre people are awesome!
I wore the caftan again that year for the Doodah Parade for Ilion Days. I rode on the float for Ilion Little Theatre.
As the song says, there’s no people like show people! I hope soon I will be able to make more theatre memories, if for no other reason than that I will need something to throw back to in 2021!
