|We had a little bit of fun ;-)|
Pour, oh pour the pirate sherry!
Frederic sees young women for the first time in his life.
Oh false one! You have deceived me!
A rest after climbing over rocky mountains.
Take any heart - take mine!
Captured by pirates. (Our pirate king - isn't his costume fabulous?)
He is the very model of a modern Major General! (And I made his coat and breeches.)
Ruth, begging not to be left behind again.
Dear father, why leave your bed at this untimely hour?
Go, ye heroes, go and die! (This one's from a dress rehearsal when my costume wasn't quite finished.)
Ruth, Frederic, and the Pirate King plotting revenge on poor Papa. (I made Frederic's striped trousers. They're fall front trousers with four buttons and a couple of snaps holding them closed, and were apparently a beast to get on and off at his quick costume change!)
Ah, leave me not to pine alone and desolate!
He has done his duty; I will do mine. Go ye and do yours! (They are all in a state of collapse after holding out a hum for a whole minute...)
My daddy, the police Seargent.
With cat-like tread (tarantara)
He thought he heard a noise... (and the nightshirt I made him. There's some creative piecing at the bottom of each sleeve, since I had barely enough fabric to cut this out.)
Oblivious to his danger...
The pirates have (temporarily) triumphed. Also, an excellent view of the breeches and vest I made for our Frederic.
And they all lived happily ever after!
