Adamant Redux

A group of us attended the QuarryWork's theater production of The Importance of Being Earnest in Adamant, VT. This has become a summer tradition for me and my friends. QuarryWorks puts on three free productions each summer -- a musical, a children's production and a classic. The Importance of Being Earnest is this year's classic. Tickets are free but you have to show up ahead of the show to pick them up. This is community theater and the quaint, but scenic locations overlooking a quarry makes it seem even more communal. Attendees can pack picnic dinners to eat before the production begins. One year my friend Joan helped play the piano for one of the prodcutions so she knows a lot of the cast and crew. Flowers line the dirt path and the banks along the quarry. Tonight I captured some of these as I waited for the play to begin.

Waffles stayed at home with Alfie and my mother, who kindly agreed to keep an eye on her. The verdict is still out on the Thundershirt, but I will keep everyone posted. In the meantime, she was quietly sitting in her crate when I returned although I heard from Mom that she turned from Gizmo to a Gremlin when the crate door first locked.

Enjoy the pics of Adamant and if you ever have the opportunity go and check out a show. Tonight's was terrific and no less lovely was the natural beauty of this rural Vermont setting.
