Students are working hard to get Me & My Girl ready for audiences! On our first day of tech, students worked the big mansion shift, which rotates with a pneumatic cylinder actuated turntable. It only takes one student to rotate the wagon and two to ‘drive’ it downstage into position! Everyone is doing fantastic work; click on the photo to see the mansion in action!
A big thank you to Andy DiAngelis for his work creating a time-lapse video of our Elektra strike!
Everyone is doing fabulous work as we prepare for our first dress rehearsal of Elektra! Thank you to the exceptional students who built this production!
Act III crews are working quickly to bring their production of Sleeping Beauty to life!
With one month left before Act III’s production of Sleeping Beauty opens, students are working swiftly to complete their builds.
Gabby Mazza, the costume designer, works on a mock-up for the antagonist, Belladonna, using Wonderflex to give the shoulder pieces rigidity.
Everyone is working hard to prepare for the opening of Elektra on Wednesday, February 24th. The costume shop is setting a record by building every garment used in this production! Congratulations to everyone for their hard work, we will be in tech before we know it!
We had a great run of Merry Christmas, George Bailey! We hope you were able to join us, and that it put you as much in the holiday spirit as it did us!
Happiest of holidays from DeSales University!
Happy Throw Back Thursday!! A Christmas Carol 2010

“…Eliza Martin as the Ghost of Christmas Past has a costume that is worth the price of admission on its own and drew gasps from the audience when she unveiled it…” – The Morning Call
“The set is minimal and most of it folds out of a giant trunk. Music is provided delightfully by handbells performed by the cast…” -The Morning Call
On December 3rd, students were fortunate to attend a workshop with Jimmie DeLoach, a master hairstylist and makeup artist for the film, television, and theatre industry. DeLoach’s workshop included a transformation from human to zombie.
It also featured a realistic-looking prosthetic compound fractured arm complete with a protruding bone.
DeLoach has worked on many film and theatre projects in the Cayman Islands. His U.S. film credits include Deliverance, Gator, and King. Since 1983, he has been responsible for makeup and hair for the Theatre Macon’s annual production of The Nutcracker in Macon, Georgia, as well as more than 60 plays at Macon Little Theatre and Theatre Macon, Georgia. His background in chemistry led him to create his own formula for a sunless spray tanner.
Congratulations to the entire company of Merry Christmas, George Bailey!
