Behind the Scenes: Makeup and Masks

Facing Angela opens this weekend! 

How stoked are we? Way stoked. 

With the premiere of Facing Angela approaching in matter of hours, our artists are busy perfecting their designs. You've probably heard us making a big hullabaloo about the makeup and masks in this show and for good cause, 'cause they are pretty righteous. 

Here's a sneak peak at the backstage goings-on before tonight's preview performance:

Masks, are you ready for your close-up?

Oh, Angela. That's doesn't look so good, sweetie. 

We're super proud of our actors and designers, but we still need some help making all of this happen. So, how can you help? Two ways.

1) Come see the show! Tickets for Facing Angela are on sale on the Athenaeum's website. 

2) Donate to our Kickstarter. We have 4 days left to raise a little over $1000, and we know we can reach out goal with a little help from our friends. 

Sage advice from Cecil.
