Alan at Sepia Saturday says:
Hey, let's put on a show! The desire to dress up, lark around in public, utter words that you would not normally recognise, is as old as the hills - or at least as old as a string of Judy Garland films. Sepia Saturday 199 celebrates the theatre, be it professional or amateur, serious or comic, situated below a proscenium arch or behind a kitchen table. Dressing up, dressing down, acting daft or acting dreadfully - they all form part of the script for Sepia Saturday 199 (post your posts on or around Saturday 19th October 2013 and add a link to the linky list below). Our archive theme image was taken in 1914 in Waterford in Ireland and it has been suggested that it might be the cast of an amateur performance of the Pirates of Penzance.
It's going to be a quick one this week and I'm afraid there's nothing from my own collection as I fear I have run out of material.
Thankfully the State Library of Queensland collection at Picture Queensland is chock full of treats....

Aren't they just lovely?
There's something to be said for a good hat I always say.
And a beautiful smile too of course.
Although of course if you were in the audience one would hope you would take notice of this lantern slide.
I hope you enjoy other performances on Sepia Saturday ..it gives me reason to live...well perhaps that's exaggerating it a bit....but the great news is that you can leave your hat on while you're on the net...
