SHOW PROPS

In 2005, Amanda was invited to do a prop for Seussical the Musical by the Des Moines Playhouse. That started a love of props and everything that goes with them from the hunt to the creation. Since then Amanda  has been prop mistress or helped do props for over 20 shows. Some of the props are created individually by her and some by a group effort. Those who helped are noted below.
