My last year's post in regard to the Mary Jane Teall Awards still holds true for me. The local theatre honor ceremony, I believe, is a fun night where all theatre people can get together, *dress up,* joke, laugh and drink together. I try not to take it too seriously, though. While I am honored if I am a nominee, I do not perform for awards, I perform for the art, to communicate emotions and ideas and because I dearly love it.
I got to see many of my friends accept well deserved honors, as well as a few of my dear friends and mentors receive the Educator of the Year Award and the Special Merit Award (Yea! Nick, Ed and Danette!) - a full list of the honorees can be found on the Mary Jane Teall Website.
Now to the fun stuff: I was so excited to dress up - of course, when am I not? I chose my dress very early on, a 1960s Ivory Wiggle Dress, flapper fringe waist down - very twenties inspired, very 60s chic.
With my new coiffure, I was timid about doing my hair. The blond, as prior mentioned, is a new thing for me to style. Thanks be to my pinterest, I found these 60's up dos for inspiration!
After hot rolling, cooling, spraying, much teasing, curling and praying - I emerged from my dressing table with a boss-do.

Many of these pictures do not do my friends beautiful looks justice either. People looked so shnazzy!
A lot of my photos were taken at my favorite local pub
Maybe next year I'll remember to take good pictures before I hit the bar... maybe.
