I had the first official meeting this afternoon w/the director and cast of this year's competition one act, The Compleat Works of Shakespeare (Abridged(Abridged)). We just discussed a little bit what we're looking at, and Mr G sent home a copy of the DVD for me to watch so I can get a better idea of the required costumes.
Oh.My.Gosh. That is one hysterical production. A bit ribald in places...but, so was good ol' Will.
But, the good thing is that the production has a pronounced improv feel to it...so the costumes look very thrown together as well.
There are only three people in the cast, and I'm thinking of some things in my own costume wardrobe at home that might work, as well as some things that I know are in the costume shop from previous shows I've been involved with. There will be some sewing, to be sure, but mostly it's going to be scrounged up.
I'm breathing just a *little* easier ;)
