My Latest Play

I made a New Year's resolution to keep up with my friends, including updating my blog. It's still January so I'm not too far behind.

My latest play is "Angel Street." Most people have seen the movie "Gaslight" which was based on this play. It stared Ingrid Bergman and she won the best actress Oscar in 1944. This picture is obviously the from the 1944 movie. That's Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman. Great film if you ever get a chance to watch it.

I did the costumes and set decoration for the Redlands Footlighters production. I also have a small part as the housekeeper Elizabeth. I have a lot of fun working on these productions. It helps to keep me out of trouble.

This first photo is of Hanre le Roux she arrived from South Africa three years ago. My friend Tess Bertani took them. This one gives a good look at the costume and the set. Even I'm impressed with how good it turned out.

Here's a photo with me in it. I'm the one in the apron just in case you didn't know how a housekeeper might dress in Victorian England. The actor I'm talking to is Eric Gruenler. He's a retired Air Force Pilot and a heck of a lot of fun to work with. The whole cast is great.

I will be working on "Giants Dance" next. It's a comedy set in England in 600 AD. It sounds like fun, I'll let you know.

What fun! You did great on the set and costumes. I guess there's quite a difference between a Victorian maid and a French maid!

We miss you and love you!
