Live Theater

Today, at the last minute, we decided that we would go, afterall, to the open house at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.  We got there too late for the free lunch and prizes, but we had a lot of fun looking around. 

Set minature for To Kill a Mockingbird.  How small is this miniature?  That is my smallest child's blurry head in the foreground.

Costumes from Dracula were out for everyone to look at: 

Sketches of Jacob, and Marley (dead these seven ye-ahs):

A set miniature for A Christmas Carol: 

A huge splurge for our holidays, and one we haven't indulged in for a few years, we've already got our tickets for A Christmas Carol.  I might not have gotten them, I might have just thought about it, but if you buy them in July, you can get them half price!  And this year, we are taking the boys.  I am SO excited! 

We also missed the backstage tours, which I was really bummed about, but we did get to see how they make 'snow' and got to explore a few areas that are normally closed.  I asked if they needed volunteers in set design and was told, "Um...  not really."  Oh.  Maybe I will check back in a few months to see... just in case.

Wow -- that looks really fun. I hope you can sneak in there with the set design -- how cool would that be?
