I’m a little actress, short and stout.  Here is a silly picture, here is my spout.

{I’m actually not short at all.  Try 5′ 10″.  I also don’t have a spout, just this song stuck in my head.}


If you’ve come out to see Wind in the Willows somewhere in Chicagoland, thank you so much!  I am thrilled to connect with you–thank you for checking out my website!

If you’re planning to come see the show, please say hello afterwards.  Let’s take some pictures, shall we?  If you give me permission, I’d love to post ’em here on the site.


Behind the Scenes:  Wind in the Willows Rehearsal

Rehearsals take on a new level of excitement when props and costumes start showing up for the actors to begin using.  Not everything was ready at this point, but here you see Chris, Mike, and Sally trying out their new toys.

As you can imagine, fight scene rehearsals are pretty stinking fun.  This was my first fight scene ever, so I enjoyed it extra much.

Even when you’re fighting with plastic weapons, you’ve gotta be careful.  I learned that eye contact is important–you don’t want to catch your fellow actor off-guard.  Of course the idea is to have the actors make it look like they were surprised by the blow.

I love these pictures of Julia and Mike.  Something went a bit wrong as they rehearsed their moves….but nobody was hurt, and they shared a tender moment exchanging apologies.  :)

Who will win?  The good guys or the bad guys?  Isn’t the suspense just killing you?!

Please leave a comment and let me know something you or your kids loved about the show.   Also, please feel free to ask a questions about the production.   Thanks for swinging by!

It doesn't always make sense-the way we live. We decide that's ok. People don't have to get it. Welcome to Foolish for Light, a place for exploring the counter-intuitive life of a light-chaser.


Foolish for Light is a place for anyone willing to challenge the way things have to be done. I'm kind of perfectly fine being called foolish as I chase the Light of the world. You?
