This was just dress rehearsal... we ended up putting Seymour in devil horns (via the director, Seth Valentine's request) and everyone else was wearing a halo!
I remember seeing a flyer in the hallway of the basement of Krannert for Little Shop of Horrors and getting excited to see it and I even considered joining the team for costumes. A few weeks later, my wonderful friend Liz sent me an e-mail introducing me to Aaron Kaplan, the creator of Illini Student Musicals. After meeting the wonderful cast and crew... I was hooked. There was no way I wasn't doing this production... and I am so incredibly glad I did. The ISM family was really something to experience.. and I will never forget how it felt to be a member in that family. The sense of community is so intense.... and it's wonderful in theatre, as always, to be part of the team. Everyone welcomed me with open arms into this wonderful production, and I'd specifically like to thank my assistant costume designer, Jennifer J. Jones. She taught me everything I learned about working at the warehouse, strike (ISM style), directions, etc. She is literally the best! Everyone on the cast and crew was absolutely phenomenal and I'm still raving about the experience. If you have a chance to be involved with ISM on the University of Illinois campus..... I recommend it to the highest degree! Theatre lives!
