CenterStage does a program called the Young Playwrights Festival, where 7 plays by kids in K-12 are produced by CenterStage staff and professional actors. Its really fun, its all put together in two days, and the budget is very limited. My responsibilities for this years Festival included designing and creating an angry fish.
I made him out of sweat shirt! I sewed big lips around the hood, and eye balls on either side, and big scales all down the body.
It was the most fun to make, to design something myself, decide how I'm going to make it, and then do it. Wil said I got a little carried away, but it was one of the most creatively stimulating things I got to do at CenterStage. And, Mr. Fish was the first thing I've ever designed that has been on stage!
And I'm proud of him.
