What have I been doing with my free time? I've been working with a small group of parent and grandparent volunteers to establish an extracurricular theater program at the girls' school. As of tonight, we have cast our first show. "The Music Man Junior" will have 90 (not a typo) actors and an additional 28 students helping out in backstage and offstage roles. No small undertaking, I tell you. For more information on the Saints on Stage program, our inaugural production, or the cast list, check out this new blog: Saints on Stage.
Let me now take off my Producer hat and replace it with my Mommy one: Amanda and Elisabeth both auditioned for the show. I am proud to announce they were cast-- well, to be fair, we cast everyone who tried out-- as Amaryllis (Amanda) and Gracie Shinn (Libby.) This is going to be interesting.
