I work sporadically for a local theatre which has been in operation for many years. We have some very talented people invloved and the actors ( at least the ones I have spoken to,) don't mind the hour plus drive to Santa Paula from Los Angeles because our little theatre here puts on quality shows.
I haven't blogged about my job as a costume designer at the theatre before and I thought some of you readers might be interested in what goes into putting up a show. I will be working hard for the next month on this project so if you are interested stick around to see my progress.
The play is called
The Elephant's Graveyard.
The tragic tale of a struggling circus in a small town in Tennessee in 1916.
I am sharing some of my photos from research I have done from my Circus History Pinterest board.
Enjoy these historic photos!
