Wow, just Wow

The Playshop after the Christmas Eve storm in 2002

Last night was the official opening of The Wilton Playshop exhibit at The Wilton Library celebrating The Playshop’s 75th anniversary and all I can say is wow! The crew from The Playshop, comprised of “new” and old Playshoppers alike, has done an astounding job representing the organization’s three quarter century history as Wilton’s Community Theater.

There are props, posters, oh the posters, set pieces and costumes plus photos galore. You simply must see it.

Here’s a fun game for you to play. Laura and I can mark significant moments in our lives in posters, most of which are hanging in the library as you walk in.

Met: Sweet Bird of Youth
Became friends: Witness for the Prosecution
First Date: A Chorus Line
Engaged: Children of a Lesser God
Married: A Perfect Party
Preggers: Little Shop of Horrors (we were actually preggers before that but we remember how much fun it was working on Little Shop while pregnant).
Sarah Born: Steel Magnolias

We found all but “Children” represented on the wall. I plan to go back and look some more.

Tickets are still available for the gala on 24th at Rolling Hills and if last night is any indication, it’s going to be a blast!
