Closing CURTAINS today. Sad to see this experience end. I will miss this cast & crew, not to mention my wonderful role and my costumes!

Made Clara Jane's Unforgettable Peach Pie from WHITE TRASH COOKING. Recipe is as follows:

"You'll need Clara Jane's Unforgettable Peach Pie Crust, but forget it. No one left alive can make a pie crust like this, so you might as well go buy one, or use Oleta Brown's recipe!"

4 medium-size, peeled-and-sliced, real-ripe peaches.

1/2 tsp pure almond extract

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 tsp mace (I used nutmeg and cinnamon instead)

1 cup brown sugar

2 tsp cornstarch (dissolved in 2 tablespoons of water)

Mix the peaches with everything else. Pour into the best pie shell you can buy or make, and bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees fir 30 minutes. And pray to God it turns out like Clara Jane's!"

I would so love to come up and see it. I just don't see how. That's the week before tech for Glass Menagerie. Are you loving it? Wanna talk off line about it? : )

Actually ready to put the new library together and begin the new school experience, but the permits aren't ready yet, so we go day-to-day, and I am on-call.

Playing Herbie in GYPSY is going to be a challenge. I may need to blog about it.
