Bible Story Theater 2008

Another year of Bible Story Theater, this year celebrating its 30th year at St Pauls UCC in Chicago. This year, it was a review of the past thirty years of productions, called "the wHOLYe Bible". People came from around the country to reprise their roles.

I worked mainly with the "Bookettes". I thought "shopworn chorus girls" in planning their costumes. A wonderful theater person came up with the plan for the sandwichboard Bibles. I had a great millinery shop going with church women making the pillbox hats.

I also worked with the Unclean Spirits. Always fun!

Eve was a John the Baptist groupie, a Beehive. My friend Sharon Sikes made her dress.

The Beehives in rehearsal. We had a parishioner who wore a beehive back in the day help organize the hairdos.
