I played the role of Mrs. Dilber. She is the laundress who picks over Ebenezer's dead body in Christmas Future and then sells his personal effects to make a little fast cash. I wore rags and had dirt on my face. It was fun. The dress I'm wearing above is my other part - a party guest at Fred's party, in Christmas Present. I didn't dance. Whew.
I'm not itching to do another play. All three ladies say they want to do the next one - CSI: Fairy Tales. I'm glad they have found a great outlet and they enjoy the stage. I say they can have it. I love to watch.
Sorry the picture above of our family is so dark. We only had candlelight in 1847, you know. The picture to the right is Rachel (in green), with her Crachit family. Mr. and Mrs. Crachit are actually Sgt. and Mrs. Shumway. Becka, the blonde seated in front of her mom, and Alex, in the hat, are also Shumways. The other siblings were loaners. So sweet. Aren't they a cute 19th century English family?
