More often than not, I am working on a production that necessitates any number of faux food items. Cinderella is no exception. The opening scene is a bustling town square with fruit vendors, a butcher, a baker, and florist (among others) selling their wares out of carts and baskets. For me, this means new adventures in faux stage food. Today’s creation: fruit baskets and hot dogs. I rolled the dogs out of self-hardening clay. I have to let the pups dry out for a couple days before I can wrap them in netting and string them together to hang from the butchers cart. Bon appetit!
