It is almost fall! Huzzah for a new season! Fall is my favorite time of year and I can feel it approaching. Scarves and boots and pumpkins and apple-picking, here I come! Sorry Summer, but Fall and I are in love.
Fall also means the start of a new school year. Once again I'll be venturing back to Appleton, Wisconsin to work at Lawrence University. I have worked as a costume designer in their opera and theatre departments for (cough cough) years. (I still often get mistaken for a student, and it thrills me every time it happens. Every year there is some freshman that asks me what year I am.) This year I get to design costumes for the fall musical, which is... Into the Woods! Fall in Wisconsin AND Sondheim? Yes, please.
I also have another Sondheim project to look forward to this fall, which is the Follies concert at the Chicago Humanities Festival. I feel lucky to be part of what I know will be a fabulous group of singers.
And the fall auditions are picking up! Yay I love the change of seasons.

I also sometimes like the "I'm older than I look game." At White Heron I keep getting mistaken for one of the high schoolers. I also like the question "so how many years have you been teaching" when they expect me to say a tiny number and I hit them with a 9. I am also excited for you to do Into the Woods. I hope to have some fun Sondheimy type mini-sewing projects to help with.
