Oh... the drama of it all....

I’m not a big fan of the theater but I’m a great fan of THEATER.

I love the concept of going to a darkened auditorium, and letting the actors transport me to another place… but the reality is, the whole thing bores me silly. Perhaps I’ve been and still am too poor to afford good theater, or maybe I’m a gen-x slacker who needs special effects and million dollar budgets in order to buy into the story presented. Possibly, somewhere out there, exist actors just waiting to impress me.

On the other hand there is THEATER, of life that is. You know the kind when you’re just minding your own business and you get a glimpse of someone's life... and you're all up in their cool aid? You can see the emotion between people, but you can just hear a bit and you can't read lips and you're like... What's that all about? No? just nosey ole me? … YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT… THEATER!

Anyway… I’ve been inspired. I’d been looking for a sky background for my scenes. I’ve been using plexi with the blue protective film still attached. It’s worked, but they’re in small sections and the blue is starting to peel. So, I ordered blue window film and adhered it to a large piece of clear plexiglass. When I had it all set up, it reminded me of my high school’s auditorium and stage, a clean crisp canvas where students would dance, or sing or put on a play. Well here’s a nice little place for some doll Theater I thought. And here it is. - Enjoy

At the beach. First date? Proposal? Break up?

At the store. Frenemies? Sisters?

At a restaurant two tables away. Why's he nervous? Is she crying or laughing?

At the airport. Brother in-laws? Modern family?

On a city street. What?!

Love the scenes. They are dolls, but seem so full of life!

Love the background idea. Very cool and thanks for sharing.

The neatest thing about other people's theater is that you can enhance it as much or as little as you like without having to deal with the pain of being part of it. Whew.
