Finished! The production of Midsummer Night’s Dream was a smash hit, and the kids were totally on, thrilled to be wearing the costumes and speaking the words that I wrote onstage. It was amazing to have someone come and make my translation of Shakespeare real (the people at West Theatre came and directed it and made it all happen). It was totally exciting. And I left the Shakespeare in during the important parts (particularly when the fairies were talking).
And here’s a picture of my younger daughter, who made a huge splash with her amazing personification of Puck. It needed very little dressing up, so her costume was one of the simplest. I have other pictures of the awesome fairies but need to get permission to put them up…!
