Twin chorus girls!

So Wayne and I are in in this show – La Cage Aux Folles – playing at the HART Theatre in Haywood County, NC.

And because my mother taught me to sew at a young age I am the one the “Cagelles” (chorus girls – varying genders) come to when costumes need to be repaired.

When I pulled out Phaedra’s torn bird costume this morning I was an instant celebrity with my twin girls.  It would not have been more exciting if I had been invited onto the Oprah show.

Holly & Jasmine were so anxious to be allowed to try on the costume once it was fixed that they gladly vacuumed and folded washing while they waited (yes – I am a lucky mother!).

Here’s the result – who can tell who is who?

And facing the other way in the same costume we have:

Someday these girls will perform at the HART Theatre.  I’m sure of it.  And if you’d like to make a donation to the expansion of the theater into a major arts center, please visit the website at
