Theatre and Cinema


Hello everyone, hope you’ve all had a good week.  For this week’s theme  I tried to think of a film or play that might connect the other themes for this month.   GREASE kept coming to mind because of its Drive-in theatre and Fairground Scene finale; I’m also in a bit of a pink mood, so this really ‘Fit the Bill’.   I looked on-line for images and was surprised to see that GREASE The Musical was coming to Bournemouth for one week only.  So in the name of Research for Tag Tuesday, last night I was off to the THEATRE for Opening Night (any excuse!!).  It was a fantastic show.  The  whole 'Summer Nights' idea is just perfect for these August Themes.
For my main tag, I used a flyer for the show.  On one side I have covered over most of the writing with my ticket, a strip of advertising material with 'MUSICAL' on it, all embellished with some black and white musical notes confetti.
I then made 4 smaller tags –
One with the ‘T’ BIRDS logo, one with the Pink Ladies logo, another has the GREASE car logo.  My favourite small tag has the theatrical comedy / tragedy masks with pink ribbons. I added a musical clef and notes.  They are attached together with pink and black ribbons.

I am really enjoying the background study that must be done for Tag Tuesday!  I’m really looking forward to the FAIRGROUND and CIRCUS weeks!  When are we having TROPICAL ISLANDS for a theme?

Thank you for all your kind comments on my AMUSEMENTS tag, they are much appreciated.  Thank you also for sharing and inspiring me with all your tags, they are all a real treat to look at as soon as I have posted mine on the blog!
Bye for now and have a great, creative week.

  4. I like your kind of research! I've never seen Grease on stage, but it's one of the movies my daughters and I loved to watch on video. When I was a teenager, my cousin and I used to sing and dance along the sound track for the fun of it. I thought I looked like John Travolta. LOL!

  18. Having such a great time looking at this week's tag, and yours are no exception. Oh, I so wanted to be Olivia Newton John .... your interpretation captures the "Grease" fun so well.
