Karen, the owner of Village Vogue Boutique (one of my fav places to shop) hosted a fashion show Wednesday night at Indigo restaurant for The Sunshine Kids - a charity dedicated to helping children with cancer. She asked me to model a gown I had already bought from her shop and after teaching till 6:45 I scurried off to model at 7pm.
Karen is also graciously supplying the gowns for the three Broadway gals in our Holiday show at the Bijou Dec 1 and Dec 2, as well as the Miss CT girls ala "Holiday Hollywood". Can't wait to see what they will look like.
Since we are in a movie house, we are going to show Karen's logo behind the women as they model her fashions while we sing Santa Baby. Product placement made easy. Movie's do it. Sports arenas do it. Why not theatre?
Today we are singing for the CT. Humane Society. Custom building a show just for them in Westport. When I met with the organizer she threw out adjectives and ideas like "love songs", "journeying" and "forever home". So I wrote a show that Fred and I will sing "love songs" ...to our dogs. :) And the journey we take with them through our lives. Bringing photos of my pound puppy Benny to sing "My funny valentine" to as well as Fred's english bulldog. :)
They are honoring Mary Tyler Moore and she may be there.
Here is picture of our final outfits for the fashion show.
