Transforming into a skid row urchin in the 60s era for Little Shop of Horrors was so much fun. Here is a video on how I put on my wig for the show. And a little treat at the end where I pay homage to my favorite superhero, Wonder Woman!
My little corner oasis in the girls dressing room. These are essentials!!!
1. My boy shorts because when wearing a skirt on stage and running dance numbers, giving the audience a peep show is absolutely NOT part of the plan.
2. For singing throats: LOTS OF WATER, preferably with raw honey. And when your throat gets tired and sore after a couple of shows? Who would of thunk!? Ginger candy…works wonders.
3. Face towel because I tend to sweat like Whitney Houston on a big night.
I’ve actually have become somewhat of the ultimate professional in the fake cut-crease eye makeup area. Let me know if you would like to see how I created my own fake cut-crease eyelid.
I learned so much…and some the hard way. 🙁 So, there was one show where my voice was muffled throughout the whole show…turns out the mic hole…was pushing against my cheek. It is supposed to face outward…amateur. GRRRR.
