Whoa! This week really went by fast with the opening of MARRIED ALIVE and all that getting a new show ready for an audience brings. We will be holding auditions for The Musical Adventures of FLAT STANLEY next week with the kids. What a darling and creative show that will be. And one in which we can really utilize those awesome moving lights! That production will open the end of January for a two week run and we will have LAMB students from 8 - 14 involved in that musical. You will be amazed at the talent of these young people.....I mean AMAZED! We were fortunate to be asked by Jill Miller to perform in her annual Christmas concert on December 17 at the Orpheum. The musical extravaganza will benefit The Sunrise Retirement Community and our elementary and middle school musical theatre students will be performing a solo number (with some incredible LAMB School soloists!--"LAST CHRISTMAS") and then will combine our talents with those of Jill and the Mount Zion Children's Choir for a couple of numbers. So...we will be competing for audiences that Saturday evening as that will also be the final Saturday performance of MARRIED ALIVE. A big thank you to the high school students and parents who are being "me" in my place so that I can be two places at once. (YES, THAT is how it is done.....one must have great friends!)
MARRIED ALIVE is going so very well and is such a fun show for both performers and audiences alike. This playwright really writes well and the songs are very clever. We were quite pleased with the enthusiasm of the audience after seeing the show. What a great regional premiere opening weekend.
We finished up our final day of our first 8 week session of Kindermusik with the young mothers and their children at Jackson Recovery's Women's and Children's Unit. That experience is worthy of a blog itself, which I will write in the very near future. Every new experience teaches me how very important and essential arts education is to the future of our local, national and world communities. I just wish that I was more articulate so I could fully express how powerfully the arts help define us and make us all better in that definition. Maybe I will find the words someday. Right now I just feel it deeply in my heart.
Need something fun to do this weekend? Meet me at the theatre. Shows this Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday matinee at 1:30p.m
