If you’ve never heard of Twinderella, here’s a little background information about this very funny and entertaining play:
Did you know that Cinderella has a long lost twin brother named Bob living in the same kingdom with his own wicked stepfamily? The separated siblings have enlisted the services of the Fairy Godmother, the Godfather and two enchanted gerbils to help wile their way into the exclusive royal festivities of Wychwood under-Ooze. Bob has his sights set on Prince Percy’s all-kingdom baseball game, while Cinderella eyes the birthday gala for Princess Petunia. When the two strangers disappear at midnight after Cinderella hits a game winning homerun, the search is on to find the feet that fit the glass slipper and the muddy cleat!
This hilarious musical send-up of “Cinderella” will delight actors and audiences alike!!
More details in the attached flyer. Hope to see you there!”

As you might have figured out by now, we’re serious film fans. So when we found four of Master Of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock’s four greatest films were being pulled out of the vaults at Universal, we got giddy. And we have reason to — they look and sound better than they have since their original theatrical releases. Remastered in the highest quality high-definition picture and sound, we are thrilled to be able to share “The Birds” (Mar. 24), “Rear Window” (Mar. 25), “Vertigo” (Mar. 26) and “Psycho” (Mar. 27) with you as part of this very special engagement. Please join us so that Universal is keen to go back to the vaults for more great classics.

The challenge for anyone trying to take a picture of a schooner or any other masted vessel is getting up close for all the detail while keeping the mast and or bowsprit in the frame.  You can elect to take a picture of the entire boat or you can take portions, leaving out the bowsprit and/or mast.  For our purposes here I wanted to take you in  close so you could see just how detailed these ship models are.  If this picture was taken of the entire boat you wouldn’t get the up close details.

As always you can click on the picture and select “all sizes” to see the larger version of this picture.
