"I'm not all there myself"
A friend is helping Alternatives For Girls produce a short theatrical version of "Alice in Wonderland," and asked if I'd help out with some backdrops. This is them. I came up with a simple way to make the cat appear, too: three cardboard screens, one with leaves, which slides out to reveal one with a smile added, which slides to reveal a third with the full cat. Know why Cheshire cats smile? Because Cheshire is a dairy producing district - lots of milk and cream to keep kitties happy!
UPDATE: Here's a photo of the Cheshire Cat on stage with Alice!
