This is the week that
Sight and Sound employees have been
looking forward to March 2012
for a very long time.
It literally takes years to build
a new show.
From the writing of the story,
to making miniature models of sets,
creating the costume designs,
hiring the actors,
actors learning the script,
building the sets in full size,
making video to insert into the show,
special effects that dazzle,
choosing special products for concessions
and so much more.....
It is a long, expensive and complicated process.
Sitting on the sidelines as I do with
three family members who work there
I hear a lot.
I am so impressed by the intensity
and attention to detail that is
consistent from the beginning to the end.
We are nearing the end....of the production
phase....next phase is the
performance of a finished show.
Warren has declared this a fun,
fast moving and very entertaining
with a very real and clear message.
He says there will be no spots in the
show that are dragged out so that sets
can be moved or for other reasons.
This one just plain moves!
Chelsea and Mom are back to work
for another season.
Chelsea was so excited to go back.
She has missed her friends and
Being at home for hours on end
is just so boring to her...lol.
I remember those days.
They are no more for me.
I love being at home now.
One day she will likely feel that way
again but for now there is a whole
world out there that is very interesting
In the meantime I've spent a lot
of time with my girl the past
couple of weeks
knowing that soon she will be
working five days a week and
then in just a little over a year she will
be headed to Australia,
if the Lord wills it.
So, I have been doing my best
to treasure our time together.
We've gotten coffee,
We've gotten coffee,
shocking I know!,
and played several rounds of
She's beaten me more times
than I care to share.
The other evening while we played
the animals decided to get in
on the fun.
They couldn't figure out why
we shrieked every time they
tried to cross the floor to
get on our laps.
We had to keep putting the
board back together....
