About Ms. Natalie

I was always an avid reader, even if I wasn't the best reader. I would read book after book often returning to well loved favorites to read again. My favorite genres are Science Fiction and Historical Fiction. I find both the past and the possible future very interesting. When I became a librarian I was very excited by the prospect of sharing my love of books. I quickly discovered that teaching library and technology is much more than reading books. It's sharing information, learning about reliable resources, digital citizenship, computer skills. Being a librarian at St. Philip's also means I teach technology, film editing, 3d printing, and much more. When I'm not reading and teaching library and technology skills you can find me running SPAS Drama Club.

Little Women Costume Ideas

It’s costume time! While there are a lot of costumes being provided there are some people that will have to be creative I’ve included my pinterest board which contains more authentic images. Underneath that are characters who need costumes and some ideas for finding them. I used search terms like victorian girl, civil war ball gown, victorian ball gown, etc.

Female Dancers: You need some sort of puffy dress. Try ebay or thrift stores for a floor length ball gown. I searched ebay for 80s prom dresses and found some good options.

  • Such as this:
  • Or this without the apron

Little Girls: Try to find some sort of old fashioned looking dress. If it has a full, bell shaped skirt all the better.

  • Something like this (more expensive)
  • Or this without the bonnet


Shoes should be black.

  • Children wear mary jane type shoes, no heal
  • Women wear character shoes
  • Men wear dress shoes (oxfords and loafers)

Children hair should be ringlets or braids.

Women’s hair should be up. There are examples on the pinterest board. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Little Women Auditions

Hi all! Thank you for attending the meeting yesterday. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. I realize there were some link issues. They should now be fixed.

Please keep in mind:

  1. Students have until Monday at 5pm to sign up to audition. Anyone not signed by 5pm will not be allowed to audition.
  2. The audition order will be posted on the blog soon after 5pm on Monday.
  3. Auditions are Tuesday. We will start after dismissal. As soon as your audition is done you may go home with a parent or guardian.
  4. If you do not have the contract signed at your audition you will not be considered for a role.
  5. You do not have to memorize your monologues but you may memorize them. Either way it is a good idea to be very familiar with the monologues.
