    yeah... no ramp :-/ i dunno how i feel about it. but they wanted to devide the show into 3 stages: stage right being :wisdom:'s garden and stage left being :grouchy:'s garden and the main stage being... well the main stage where most of the action takes place. i suppose including the ramp too, would just make it all look like "too much" goin on, especially when most of the backdrops for this show are already larger than life, so i guess it works

    Yeah. The whole three stage thing kind of reminds me of the Chuck E. Cheese stage,lol.

    I noticed that went ahead and used that dumb purple Honker again.:grouchy:

    They must really love that one! VEE should really consider designing a red Honker or a light green one. Those would really be cool. I also thought of who couldv'e been a good choice for a medium understudy- your avatar, Jodie.:)

    Haven't seen much of her lately, she would have been the perfect choice.

    i know! jodie's soo cute! LOL! yeah they use purple and orange as the tall and medium this year. have you watched the ss t.v. show lately? the new character, murray, seems to be getting very popular. it wouldn't surprise me if he was the tall or medium understudy next year... or maybe he'll even have speaking lines...?

    Yeah...I wouldn't be surprised. I was kind of expecting him to be in this show, just as an u/s anyway. I think the big mystery for me would be how they would design the costume, i mean the puppet on the show looks so unqiue. Just like Two-Headed Monster, they TWO heads!:crazy: And VEE still included them on some of their tours in the 80's.:cool:

    But yeah, VEE should really consider using Jodie more often. The best memory I have of Jodie is seeing her in BBSDC, lol. I think she was also in the first version of 1-2-3...Imagine! but, if I remember correctly, she wore a hat and I think she was in a wheelchair. And even know I saw the 2000 version, I believe she was in the 1994 production of Let's Be Friends.

    :wisdom:

    Yeah Jodie was the medium u/s in the orignal prod. of LBF, and in both productions of LPSchool. The girl in the wheelchair was Francis. The small understudy character in the original prod. of 123 alternated the Francis and Prairie Dawn costumes throughout the show. Grover was the medium u/s for 123.
  13. Two headed Monster was only in one SSL show, they were in 'Big Bird's Super Spectacular Show', that was the 1981-1982 show. Speaking of Two headed.....anyone got any idea what the costume was like in that show? I mean....how could people perform in that thing? LOL. In fact, Gladys the cow and Fred the wonder horse were also in that show....i bet VEE had more than 17 people in the cast back in those days.

    They use to have Herry, Forgetful Jones, and Simon Soundman as walkarounds too back in the 80s...man I bet those were the days.

    yeah back in the day they used to have 18 performers in some shows. gladys was a two person costume like snuffy and two headed was a puppet.
