The Thing

Colleen’s words to use this week are WORK and PLAY



Learn their parts

In rehearsals

Because that is their job

The director guides them

Costumers make their wardrobes

Sets are designed and built with care

Tickets are sold, ushers seat patrons

When the curtain rises, the fun begins
