No sparkling dog dishes or flashing mirrors this time. Instead, I spent the better part of this evening making a fake fashion catalogue, Photoshopping a student onto a 1980's laser background, and looking up headshots of 80's heartthrobs.
Speaking of which, does anyone else remember this game?
This show has caused more flashbacks than I can count. The fun of stumbling onto long-forgotten relics of my childhood almost makes up for the number of things my born-around-2000 students have never heard of (Atari, DOS, and "Heroes in a half shell - Turtle Power!" for example).
Come to think of it, have I told you what show we're doing? I'm not sure I have. We're doing Back to the 80's: The Totally Awesome Musical. It's your standard jukebox-kinda show - great playlist, weak book, tons of references that Jesse, Rachel, and I have to explain to the students.
Hence the night of 80's hotties. Here are just a few of the photos I'm printing for "Let's Hear It For the Boy":
Whew! Try to contain yourselves, ladies.
This should be a fun print job to explain to the front office tomorrow morning.
While it's been a night of Googling images, I'm just relieved I'm not making is a life-sized car out of cardboard. What kind of show requires a full-sized vintage car on stage that actors can dance on? I ask you!
Now if someone will just loan me a 1980's white brick-style cell phone..
