This weekend was a weekend of "theatre going." Friends of Youngest and I were in local community production of "The Sound of Music." We attended with another friend and her daughter and had such a delightful time. I love going to musicals! They just make me happy. Our little friend played one of the Von Trapp children and did such a fabulous job. It was her first time being in a "musicale" and she loved it! I get chills each time I hear the "nuns from the Abbey" sing "Climb Every Mountain." I've been having the soundtrack playing in my head all weekend.
Last night, Youngest and I had another double date with a mom and her daughter and attended one of the area high school's production of "The Drowsy Chaperone." I had never heard of this show before and was intrigued. Interestingly enough, when this show was announced last Spring, I then noticed twice over the summer, two area universities were putting on this very show during their summer season.
If you ever get the chance to see this show- GO! It's not very often that you get the opportunity to see a show that you have NO IDEA what it is about. Not a remake of a movie or a tried and true Broadway production...This show was so creative and the talented young performers made it even better. It's a musical within a comedy- a show within a show- current day to past times. Very, very fun...still smiling about it.
In a few weeks, Youngest will be performing in her school's Junior production of Seussical. We are looking forward to this with much anticipation. Again, another very fun show.
On a completely random note, I know I mentioned a few months ago that I was starting the "30th anniversary of my Senior Year of High School." Well, it's official- I received via Facebook- the date of my 30th High School reunion. I'm excited and depressed all at the same time. Excited because I have never attended any of my reunions- and I will not miss this one! Depressed because- well I can't believe it's been thirty years!
