I heard it said that Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astair did, only backwards, and in high heels. I was left with a similar feeling painting sets for Romeo and Juliet. remember the nutcracker where we had many hours in the auditorium to paint and rock out to Cee Lo Green's Christmas CD? Not so with Romeo and Juliet where we could only paint during actual rehearsals. Paint a set in a few days? No sweat. So I found myself doing everything a painter does only on a ladder, above dancing children, with periodic blackouts, which makes it so much more exciting. Better still is that I am now over my fear of heights (thanks to Jan who taught me to hang off that ladder like it was no big deal).
