“Annie, Annie! You Filled Our Life With A Song!”

In the sewing room today, Raggedy Ann was feeling a little blue about her rôle in Enterprise State Community College’s production of “Annie”, that splendid musical about a plucky orphan during the Great Depression.  It will require some adjustments in her physique and costume, as well as some gymnastics that might tax even the most accomplished actor. Despite her trepidation, Raggedy Ann is full of heart.

Make Do and Mend

No lines, but a great opportunity to shine!

Knitnoid will be making his debut as the “Dead Mouse”, and is prone to get over-excited about his moment on the big stage. Both Raggedy and Agapanthus try to calm the young actor, hoping that all that restless energy can be subdued before the crucial scene. It wouldn’t do to have the dead mouse wiggle!

“In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing.”

Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

There has been a flurry of play production and theatre-going in The Wiregrass of late, supported by friends and family of the Mad for the Farthing Crowd. Good stories, well told, never go out of style. Neither does Hitty Hedydd, at least in her own estimation. This particular outing, however, prompted Hedydd to require something special in terms of elegant millinery. An invitation had been extended to see Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest”, playing at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. One could hardly attend the Festival in last year’s bonnet, so Hedydd set her own costumier to creating a hat to rival any on the stage.


Hedydd enjoys an evening at the theatre and is especially fond of visiting the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Nestled into Blount Cultural Park, ASF is a treasure in which Hedydd loves to revel.

Indeed, Hedydd’s new hat rivaled, surpassed perhaps, even the lovely creations worn by the actress portraying Lady Bracknell. She was feeling rather self-satisfied until she noticed the lobby display advertising “King Lear”…

…and realized that her own wooden head wouldn’t lie easy until she, too, wore a crown.

Hitty Hedydd’s beautiful new Liberty of London dress is another creation of Kay DeMattei.
