Oh, theater people can be so wonderfully impossible! Somehow the Wee Folk Players (they’re a stitch) stayed together in one spot long enough to take a group photo. It didn’t take long before the cast and crew rushed back to work on the next episode in their American Drama Series. I know that you like to see private glimpses of the stars backstage, so here are some candid shots of the troupe in action.
Leading strongmen left their egos in check and helped move rugs…
and co-stars lent a hand sifting through and organizing the store room…
and hauled props to their spot on the set.
Costumes were fitted by the wardrobe mistress.
And here, Abe Lincoln gets made up before his appearance as the guest star in an upcoming episode.
Next week, the creative director of the Wee Folk Players will step out from behind the curtain and answer questions about how this series has affected her work and life, and reveal what’s next for the troupe.
