“THE SOUND OF MUSIC” SET   8 comments

Things are getting back to order bit by bit here after the time from Thanksgiving until last weekend was dedicated mostly to preparation for “The Sound of Music.” It was really well received. Some people came a second time because they enjoyed it so much the first time. We had sold out houses and nearly-sold-out houses, with praises still coming in.

Yesterday,  in a whole different vein, I did a presentation on “The Function of Punishment” at the Community Center. Today is busy with other stuff. Tomorrow I can’t postpone it any longer — I have to pull together my income tax information. But now I want to share some photos of the set. I promise photos of the nuns, etc., will follow.

Here’s the whole thing, constructed in the sanctuary of Mount Calvary Lutheran Church in Excelsior. That’s why you see the stained glass windows in the background, basically incorporated into Doug’s set. (Remember you can enlarge the photo by clicking on it.)



Turn the Gazebo around and light the photo of the interior of the Salzburg Cathedral above and you have the abbey where Sisters Margaretta, Sophia, and Berte hang out with the Mother Abbess. (I’ll have photos of them in a later blog.)



Turn the altar around again and you have the gazebo in the garden with a shot of the Salzburg alps in the background.

And finally the bedroom side of the set.

  1. I am so happy for you that it was a huge success. Love the background photos!

  2. Sweet model, I can imagine it was very effective, and full of atmosphere. I would love to see a photo of you in your nun-costume. Anyone took that,Mona?

    • Not the model — the real thing. And yes, I’ll be posting a photo of Sister Margaretta. First I had to get my tax stuff ready for a visit to my accountant tomorrow. Whew! I think it’s done …

      The feedback has been very enthusiastic. The thing that impresses me about Doug is that he knows where every piece of the set is now stored (after striking the set) to use for future work. With your experience you probably understand that.

  3. The sets look wonderful. The play sounds like it was a lot of fun.

    • Thanks for noticing and responding. Yes, it was fun, and it is also good to have the time back to catch up on my other projects.

      To add to the pleasure, the snow is actively melting today. I even sat for a few minutes and just watched — a little like watching paint dry, I guess.

I'd love to hear your reaction, click here
