Hello! Between Lexington Comic and Toy Convention last weekend, and Kalamazoo Living History Fair this weekend, I haven’t had much time for writing. Rest assured, you’ll get a full account of the finished Margaery Purple Wedding gown (and my current 1841 gown project) in the upcoming weeks!
In the meantime, I’m going to drop a quick plug for something I care about a lot: the Locust Grove First-Person Interpreter Corps. We will be holding auditions for new members on Tuesday, April 5th at 6:30 pm!
The Interpreter Corps is an all-volunteer group who work to bring the Croghan family and other Louisvillians to life for Locust Grove’s visitors. The interpretation is set in the year 1816, and we get to discuss many points not only of the family’s personal history, but also local Louisville and Kentucky history as well.
If the idea of acting, teaching, and learning new skills hasn’t already convinced you, I haven’t even gotten to the best part about being part of the Interpreter Corps: the corps. This is an absolutely wonderful group of people who are an absolute joy to spend time with, whether it be playing games with your LG family:
Or gossiping with your new friends (only about the scandals of 1816 of course!) (And there’s the fabulous clothes):
If any of all of these things sound like fun to you, please join us at Locust Grove on April 5th at 6:30 PM. Auditions will consist of a monologue and dialogue (sent out ahead of time), and some improvisational activities. For more information or to schedule an audition slot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
I hope to see you at Locust Grove in the future!
