Did You See the Ticket Taker at The Elmer and Ernest Show?

The youth choir put on a dinner theatre last weekend to help raise money for a ministry trip in 2012. It was a variety show from the 20's. All the kids dressed in 20's clothes (or clothes that sort of looked like they were from the 20's. Do you know how hard it is to find outfits from the 1920's? Not too many clothes left from that era.)

Anyway, the kids had a great time! Beth was a ticket taker, standing at the entrance and taking tickets as all the guests came in. We spent two weeks looking for an outfit, but didn't find anything suitable for her. All the clothes (and people!) seem tall and pencil thin. So we found a pretty dress, a hat in the style of the 20's and Diana spent an hour putting her hair in pin curls. We decided to take them out (many of the girls left them in because that's what hair styles were like back then) and her hair looked so beautiful!

So, without further ado... here are some pics from that evening:
