As the year comes to an end, I wanted to take a moment to look back on some of the exciting projects I was a part of this summer and fall.
Mercury Theatre Company's production of Disney's My Son PInocchio opened June 1, the first show of their 20th anniversary season. The costumes got a great mention in the Cleveland Jewish News review from Bob Abelman, who said, " Katelyn Jackson’s costumes – including the primary-colored outfit adorned by Pinocchio, a gorgeous blue gown worn by the fairy, and the wood grain leotards worn by players while portraying puppets – are clever and add another layer of fun fantasy to a production chock-full of it."
Next came Mercury's production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, defined by director Pierre Brault's twist on this musical theatre classic: a black-and-white world in the style of a Cecil B. DeMille 1930's Biblical epic, into which Joseph and his dreams bring color. This is one of my favorite shows, and it was exciting to work on such a unique concept for it.
In the fall, I returned to my regular job stitching in Regent University's theatre department's costume shop. For the fall semester, we put up a production of Romeo and Juliet set in 1969 and It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. The latter just wrapped, and now I'm spending the holiday break starting some builds for next semester.
