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.
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.
We are excited to see our production begin to come to life on Sunday. In honor of Throw Back Thursday, we are showcasing the Lux Girls from our 2008 production. We really miss these wonderful ladies, but the new Lux Girls are sure to impress!
Theresa Raso and Anna Kepler weld the numerous railings for Merry Christmas, George Bailey! using advanced techniques such as kerfing the steel to create a curved railing. Together they will have cut, drilled, jigged, and welded almost 400 feet of steel.

We are enjoying the multi-step process of assembling the grand Christmas Tree for our production of Merry Christmas, George Bailey! opening December 2. We are proud of the exceptional collaborative effort that has produced a truly magnificent tree.
Once again, the generous women at the Kraussdale Alpaca Farm welcomed the students for a lesson in fiber. The students were once again enamored of the alpacas and look forward to attending again next week!
Come see the outright silly musical Once Upon a Mattress! Our students have worked exceptionally hard, many of them as designers, and would love to share it with you!
