Dozens of darling Dorothys !
Saturday evening I had the pleasure of taking photographs at the Birmingham Children's Theatre's first fundraiser sponsored by their Junior Board. Held at the beautiful Southern Progress building in Homewood, this was a family event. An Evening in Oz ....think adorable kiddos dressed to the nines in gingham Dorothy dresses, lots of red, sparkly shoes, scarecrows, lions, Munchkins, and many, many Glenda's resplendent in their pink gowns. The Junior Board didn't miss a trick. They had creative crafts, the most elaborate facepainting and kid appropriate food, including a self serve "Pixie Stix" machine that insured a sugar high from now to next year! (My grandson hasn't come back to earth yet.) The theatre's talented actors, plus other local singers, mesmerized the audience with fabulous music from the play and everyone had a really good time! Sadly the cuts in local and state funding have made this a necessary way for this fabulous community theatre to keep the doors open . Please go to their website here, if you feel you can make a donation.
