The Wee Folk Players (They’re a Stitch) are back after a short winter break. Because of the rich backlog of material, the cast and crew quickly assembled, eager to put on a new production in their American Drama Series. This scene features our commander in chief and his alt-right handy man surveying their latest spoils.
Now for some behind the scenes photos ~ The kid’s building blocks came in handy for the set, which went up quickly.
And costumes and makeup were easy enough – the leading man’s outfit was previously made for his part in Flat Earth Society, but Dark Shadow Steve’s robe and staff required an anti-hero alteration. After instructing the cast to review Marvel Comics and study BBC Historical Dramas, the director advised the cast to ham it up, adding that they couldn’t possibly overdo the performance.
The Wee Folk Players are busy writing and directing new episodes in the American Drama Series. To keep up with new posts, subscribe to this blog (top right column on the home page).

You were ahead of the SNL folks with Steve’s costume choice. Well done!
Thanks for noticing Karen. My blog followers may not have seen yesterday’s process photo on FB and Instagram, which is proof!
I’m not sure how you capture so much so small. Love it.
This brings me great joy in these somewhat dark times. Keep up this important (and entertaining) work! And thank you!
I love art making a statement about what is going on. I love this!! Very terrifying times and good to see this depiction which makes me laugh – those costumes are amazing!!
Hmmm…I thought Steve’s getup might be white.
Salley you are wicked. Just wonderful,
So good again! Love, Maria
Fantastic, Salley! Keep on keeping on!
You are exactly right on…again! Thanks.
Love this. A little wee bit of humor for these dark days.
Looking into my crystal ball in the year 2117, I see Antiques Roadshow exhibiting the Wee People Players as priceless pieces of Political Art. Salley Mavor will be part of history. Bravo
Spot on !
Thank you, thank you, thank you! 💜
