Last month I played Gertrude McFuzz in Seussical the Musical, which was a BLAST. The show combines a whole bunch of Seuss stories and refers to many more. I played a bird who pops pills in order to grow a longer tail and impress Horton the Elephant. Here’s proof:
At one point my tail of feather boas was over 40 feet long. Fun times! The venue is a repurposed dairy barn, so it’s an intimate little theatre in the round. Very charming in spite of the lack of air conditioning and, uh, wildlife that occasionally makes an appearance.
During one of our off days, I felt like making Horton. This was a quick cut with no planning, which is why it’s messy. I just modified some Seuss designs and started cutting.
I’m also performing in The Man Who Came to Dinner, which opens this Tuesday the 4th and runs through the 15th. If you’re in the State College area, you should come see it! It’s hilarious! More info here.
I have a couple baby showers to attend soon and a commission due later this month, so I’ll have more paper to share soon!
