Early Costume Sketches

We've been dressing up our latest performance package to submit to several music theater festivals and I ran across some early costume sketches for the lead roles in Sisyphus. We'll plan to add them as eye candy in the character sections. It's fun to put them side-by-side with the final costume.

Sisyphus Photo Scrapbook

We've been gathering up all the various pictures people have for Sisyphus and we now have a link to a scrapbook of photos. It starts all the way back with our first reading and ends with our final performance at the Aurora Fox Theater. There are all sorts of photos of the event and the process we took getting there.

How'd they do that?

In the opening of "No death do us part" Aphrodite, played by Alison Vance, slowly plays her music box. The haunting melody was custom made for a mechanism similar to the ones used in some toy player pianos. Each note was punched from long sheet of paper and taped together so it could play continuously.

The initial prototype was created from a bar utensils holder. A lot of things had to be synchronized each night to pull it off, starting with the beginning position of the melody roll.

Check out the "Music Box Scene" on our YouTube channel.

Final table read...Check!

On Saturday the 25th we had our final table read in the basement of First Baptist Church across from the state capitol. It's important to get the work out of your head and hear how professional actors read the parts. It wasn't all work though, we had a lot of fun too, which is always a good sign of things to come!

Final Sisyphus logo options

Here are the two finalists for the Sisyphus logo. After the last round we ask the designer if we could see a version with a ribbon instead of beads. It seems like red works better with the ribbon and yellow for the beads, but at the end of the day, we need to select one logo over the other and we'd appreciate your feedback!
