Edited to add an interesting little factoid:
This is my 1,000th post!
Yes, it was just a dress rehearsal, but I really enjoyed The Just So Stories! After 3 short weeks, the kids put together (along with their director, music director, stage managers, etc.!) a great show. Friday is opening night and I thing their FRG performance Thursday night warmed them up well.
I just have to say (biased as I am) that my girls were GREAT. MilkyWhite was awesome as the lead, TheQueenofHearts was hilarious, and TheMadHatter … well, wow! Her singing gets more and more incredible!
Sadly, the theater is taking a new direction next year and there will be no workshops such as these. They have decided to bring Missoula in twice instead (booo! we’ve done it and my kids don’t like it anymore. Way too basic for kids who’ve done theater as long and often as mine have) and give a one week workshop on the techie side of theater. There are a couple of productions coming up that they will audition for, but I do love these workshops. I hope the theater gurus change their mind.
