Behind the scenes

Jocelyn Tierney, Entertainment Editor

Patriot Player Lindsey VanGerpen (11) is excited for her next performance as Celia in “As You Like It” while crew member Audrey Owen (9) delicately curls VanGerpen’s hair. There are so many details involved in creating a production as spectacular as this—hair, makeup, costumes, sets, and stage directions, just to name a few. Most of the time, the audience only sees the on stage performance, just the actors with their makeup and costumes. But there is so much more that goes into a performance! The Patriot Players put incredible time and energy into creating amazing sets, finding beautiful costumes, and overall making sure the show is perfect.
