"Like Reaching for the Moon" by Jeff Statile was the big summer project for 2011. I designed the costumes. Congratulations to all our wonderful staff and actors.
The inspiration for the summer show.
Like Reaching for the Moon, an original play with music by Jeff Statile based on the real-life story of Barbara Johns whose efforts to get a new schoolhouse for she and her classmates led to the Brown vs. Board of Ed. Supreme Court decision which intergrated schools in America.
Photographs from the time helped me to gather costume ideas.
