Closing Night

'Singin' in the Rain' closed this past weekend! Not going to lie, I'm sad to see it go. This show was no cake walk to put together. There were a lot of frustrations and issues and I questioned my abilities on more than one occasion. While it was a rough road, I was SO proud to be a part of this production. I met some truly genuine, awesome people that will forever be a friend of mine. The Director saw something in me that I didn't and gave me this phenomenal part that I never would have dreamed I could play.

I learned how to DANCE! That is a huge achievement! I got to sing solos in a spotlight, I got to jump out of a cake and I got to be in one of my favorite shows of all time. I'm a happy girl.

My brothers and their beautiful wives - I was so happy they came!
My insta-bestie, Bethany. I could not have done this show without her...
My parents came to the show twice and my Mother wept both times. I love her. I grew up wanting to be on stage like her, I love it when she can come see me perform.
My girls! Christina, Kaila, Cimony, Bethany and me.
Aw, my dear boys. Jared as Don Lockwood and Kris as Cosmo Brown.

"Lucky Star"
This show was awesome. I will miss it. I got teary more than once during the last show, but I am looking forward to having my nights free again where I can actually make dinner and put my kids to bed. How I love theater...how I love to be on stage. It's a lot of work and takes a lot of time, but goodness knows I love it. Thank you to everyone who came to see the show! That meant the world - my Aunt and Uncle, my WARD! My family, my friends, my husband. I could not have done this without Cody, he was so supportive during this whole thing and while musical theater is not his bag (I know - weird), he lets me do this because I love it so much. And I LOVE him for that.

Not sure when I'll do another show, but until then I'm sure you'll catch me dancing to 'All I do' in my kitchen...
