Dance Quest 2012 – The Dragon and the Pearl

Another year of Dance Quest ballet productions has come and gone. This was our third year participating. I once again worked on costumes and photography for the show, and I also added doing the music editing this year. We were at a different theater this year. It was a little smaller and it had a projection system for the stage backdrop. I really liked the projected images as the backdrops. They really added a lot to the show, I think.

The fabulous art poster drawn by Sabrina Collins for the show.


The poster that I designed for the wall at TDC. Justin thought it was really cool that his picture was used on the poster. Brenna is an ‘old hat’ at that by now so it wasn’t quite as novel for her, but she still grinned when her friends asked if that was really her.DQ2012-poster-web credits:

Something that was pretty cool was that I modified the poster image just a bit and it was put on the sheet cake that was eaten at the cast party after the last performance. 

And here are the cast of characters presented in their order of appearance in the show.

The Daughters of Gaia also played Rose’s Friends in the beginning of the show. Brenna was Rose and a Star, Elizabeth and Carissa were Moonbeam Shadows, and Sarah was one of Rose’s Friends and a Daughter of Gaia.

Now I just have to find the time to start tackling the storybook for the show since people keep asking me about that. With all that is going on, it just might be June before I get to it.
