Actually, my wife and I assisted in the touring production of Beauty and the Beast at the beautiful Bicknell Family Center for the Arts on the campus of Pittsburg State University. Our day started at 7:30 a.m., unloading five semi-trucks - props, sets, costumes, lights, luggage, musical instruments, and sound equipment. While my wife was recruited to the costume room - repairing tears and pressing wrinkles, I spent the better part of my day constructing the elaborate (and heavy) sets.
After spraying and rehanging all of the costume parts - multiple vests, breeches, pants, vests, aprons, shoes, knee pads, elbow pads, gargoyle claws, hats, a muscle suit, and more - we finally walked out of the Bicknell Center at 10:30 p.m., and we're looking forward to another day, today.
Here's to doing things that give you positive experiences and glimpses at uniqueness. I like doing things that most people will never do. Certainly, working on stage and back stage at a nationally-touring musical is one more.
