Life after the Shakespeare Play

The Cast of "The Comedy of Errors"
I think it's finally sinking in that the show is over.


For a number of reasons, this was the most STRESSFUL time I've ever had directing a show. BUT, it was still wonderful; I love all my actors and their parents, and I think they still love me, so it's all good. *wink*

Some of the gorgeous girls in our show
I am especially pleased with how the costumes turned out. We had some great seamstresses helping us! (Thank you Mom, Heather, Toni, Staci, Audrey,and Samantha! Oh, and I sewed some, too.)

Here are some photos of the cast in action on stage, as well as goofing off. I'm sure going to miss these kids!!!

About this year's show:

We set Shakespeare's "The Comedy of Errors" in 1774 Jamaica, and it was SO FUN!!! The cast did great, and we had some wonderful audiences. I'm tired, and a bit relieved it's all over, but at the same time, I miss all my actors and the team we formed these last few months.

I love you, YES Kids!!! See you at the cast party!!!

  1. Rachel, this is Shelly in Ephraim, Utah. I met you last year at the forum in Salt Lake. I would like more information on how you do these plays. Like how you organize your practices, how long you take to practice, how do you finance your expenses etc. Could you please e-mail me sometime????
    Thank you!!
    Shelly (

  2. I'll send you an e-mail tomorrow! (I have a whole packet of info I can share with you!) :-D

  3. Congratulations; you did it! :D

  4. WOW! The costumes are awesome! I wish we could have seen the play. I'm sure it was fantastic.

  5. Everybody looks so great! That is such a fun play. We saw it two summers ago and my (then) 8yo just laughed and laughed. I'm in awe of how you can pull off a Shakespeare play like this. One mother in my homeschool group wants to attempt something like this, but there's not much support for it from what she was saying on Friday. You should post about how you pull this off. I am interested.
