The walls are far too beautiful, and anything that hopes for a place in front of our walls will have to prove its worth first.

The Play “Anything Goes” is Off to a Great Start in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs!

Anything Goes- Scene 1

Anything Goes - Scene 2

In the past week, as volunteers, we had the pleasure and privilege of doing the painting and decorating for the sets of “Anything Goes”, a community play performed by the Fremont Street Theater Company . The play premiered on Friday August 10 and will be performed through August 19.

The set painting had to take place during a very narrow time frame in the past week. On Sunday, we met with the producers to discuss the scenes and their vision for the look and feel of the sets. From that color and concept consultation, right on the spot, we developed a color scheme and decorative elements that would meet the stated needs.

On Monday, I talked to our local Sherwin Williams store to request a large discount on the paints needed for this community painting project. They gladly accepted to support the project. Later that afternoon, I dropped off the paints at Cutting Hall in Palatine. All the painting and decorating took place during the afternoons of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The dress rehearsal was on Thursday evening. In spite of the very tight time frame, everything came together very nicely.

For Sandy Sandquist and his wife Colleen, the founders of the Fremont Street Theater Company, it was the first production of their new theater company. The play is a homerun in every way. As painting contractors and members of the community, we are thrilled to have played a small part if the play’s success.
