Opening Night

There's a brief moment where I am alone on stage, on my knees. I yell "He's mine!" and crawl offstage in pursuit of Gaston.

As I exited I heard The May Queen laugh, and I am pretty sure that it was the BEST. SOUND. EVER.

She loved it. My mom said she was enthralled the whole time.

And it did go fairly well. The neighbor girls said their favorite part was the mug banging dance (my bloody knuckles thank them...). My plate even worked tonight, for the first time ever.

A good night.

Monday's Mission is to write a post in the style of a diary entry. As I type that now I think to myself "and how is that different from most blog entries??" I'm sure you will show me with YOUR Monday Mission. See you then!

I'm glad the opening went well, and I'm glad the May Queen loved it since she is the most important member of the audience.

Hearing your daughter laugh because she loves what you did must be an amazing feeling.

Congratulations!

What an awesome moment, hearing the MQ laughing and knowing she was enjoying the show. She must be so much in awe of you (as am I).

That must be so magical for her to see you on stage. That just makes me smile. I'm so glad it all went so well.

I keep telling myself that I will get back on stage at least once so that my boys (and hubby) can see me perform. ;)

What a fabulous experience!

C opens tonight in his first play - Scapino - and he has one of the major roles, so he's both excited and terrified.
