The Red Shoes. In Progress ...

You can tell it is production week by many things: double amount of emails from the SM (Stage Managers), lousy/depressed/maniac faces on the corridors, LOUD music, a LOT of swearing (yes, even more than normal). But usually, you know it's production week when set designers/makers come into the costume department to sew their pieces of material together; and I don't mean a couple of meters, more like a couple HUNDRED. 
One minute you are"peacefully" sewing away your pearls, christmas music in the background and the next you are surrounded by a sea of never-ending fabric. Here are some classic set-people-in-costume phrases:

              "This scissors don't seem to be cutting very well..." Reply: (Sigh) They are paper scissors....

              "This sewing machine doesn't like me!"

              "This needle doesn't have a hole?!"  Reply: (sigh x2) It's a pin


              "F*** MY LIFE" 

              (General crying)

The pictures are for our upcoming Fairytale projects, ours being The Red Shoes, based around the Andersen classic tale.
