Tonight is our first dress for Sense & Sensibility at the Utah Shakespeare Festival. I always love seeing the actors in costume for the first time. No matter how much you prepare for a role, it can never really be complete without the costume. And when the story takes place in another era, as does Sense & Sensibility, the transformation is usually even bigger. Tonight, the Regency Era will reign supreme in a parade of beautiful gowns and dapper waist coats. Wish us luck tonight. We rehearse today and again on Friday. This adaptation is a world premier and opens on June 24 - a week from today!
Here's a little bit about our production from director and adaptor, Joe Hanreddy.
