There were two rehearsals. Two.
And well over 40 hours of build time.
There were about 3 pounds of Celluclay, mixed at 2 cups to 8 oz. of water.
There were scraps of fabric.
There were frantic emails.
There were at least 10 pages of scanned music.
And when it was all done, there was a puppet show about the Christian Nativity.
And it was good.
