The holidays are over and school has kicked into hyperspeed. Our girls’ performance debuts in Annie are in less than two weeks. Our girls are giddy with anticipation. This also means most of our non-school time is spent in rehearsals and preparation. Can I tell you how stressed I was getting trying to figure out their costumes? Luckily, the Drama Club at our school is like a well-oiled machine. They’ve been doing this for years. When I couldn’t find just the right dress for the last party scene for one of my “orphan” girls, they had one waiting for her to try on at the costume parade. I needn’t have worried.
Run-throughs, tech rehearsals, dress rehearsals and the real deals – the performances. Two casts. 4 shows. Opening nights. Closing shows. It’s amazing how much work goes into the school production each year. It’s sponsored by the Home & School Club (aka parents). We saw last year’s production, Beauty and the Beast, and we were wow’ed. Especially our girls.
I signed up to be the official photographer (with my husband’s assistance when he has time) and will be spending the next two weeks at all the last rehearsals. I’m really looking forward to it. I can’t wait to document this event. Who knows? This could be the beginning of our girls’ acting careers.
