Because directing a community theatre holiday production is just not enough, we decided to volunteer as actors in this year's Enchanted Forest. The show is a fundraiser for a local children's theatre - definitely a worthy cause.
For the past couple of weekends, we have been hanging out in a (very cold) forest until all hours of the night. The Enchanted Forest is fantastic - a collection of non-scary skits from characters you may recognize from popular fairy tales and nursery rhymes.
Since Andrew and I wanted to be in a skit together, we were assigned the characters of Little Bo Peep and the Wolf! Here's a little behind the scenes look at the process.
It's cold when you sit outside for several hours in a forest! Many layers required. Yes, including hair. Excuse the red eyes. I realized after editing that I failed to fix them...
All costumed and made up! A little story about that hat - while it looks fantastic, it seriously was the worst thing to keep on my head. I had to redo it about every ten minutes, which drove me crazy.
All set and ready to head out to the woods!
You'll find a wide variety of characters throughout the forest! Anything from Peter Pan and some pirates...
...to everyone's favorite Wizard of Oz friends!
But I'll admit, we're a little prejudiced. The Bo Peep and Wolf characters, located here at the Wooluff Detective Agency, are the most entertaining stop on the tour through the forest!
