RANDOM IMAGES FROM "MY FAVORITE THINGS"

*** THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS *** IMAGES WILL BE ADDED, AS TIME ALLOWS ***

CLICK ON THE FIRST IMAGE IN THE GALLERY TO ENLARGE IT AND THEN KEEP CLICKING ON "NEXT" AT THE TOP-RIGHT OF YOUR SCREEN TO SEE THE REST OF THE PHOTOS, IF YOU WISH TO VIEW ALL OF THEM. OR, YOU CAN CLICK ON ANY INDIVIDUAL IMAGE TO ENLARGE IT FOR VIEWING.

A collection of random images, featuring the backstage exploits of the management, cast, chorus, band, techies and other support folks, participating in the Flat Rock Playhouse show, "My Favorite Things: The Songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein". No effort has been made to place these images in any kind of timeline order. What you see is what you get.

The show stars Dustin Brayley, Guy LeMonnier ("South Park Connoisseur Extraordinaire"), Erin Mosher, Carolann Sanita, a 40-person backup chorus (where I hang out) and an unbelievably great band, directed by George Wilkins, Jr.

For those unfamiliar with the Flat Rock Playhouse, it is the State Theater of North Carolina. The theater is located in Flat Rock, North Carolina, near Hendersonville.

NOTE: Most of these images were taken under dim, high-contrast lighting and other challenging photographic conditions. At least saying that gives me a somewhat believable excuse for posting some less than stellar photos, of which there will likely be many! Also, as you view these photos, remember two important things: (1) there is a theoretical software limit to how good I can make you look, and (2) it's NEVER the photographer's fault! Enjoy! Bill
