Endings and Beginnings

Today is the last day of school! Yeah! My last dat at MMS. I had some very good help yesterday to move boxes to FHS. We moved four truckloads and one my vehicles full. I just watched my nephew graduate 5th grade- wow! I feel old... um mature. B & B is coming along- actually on scedule. We should be able to finish up all blocking and choreography by the middle of next week. Now all we need is something to keep us all from dancing around the stage naked- that's what Monday is for. Costumes, I mean- not dancing around naked. Paul started putting up the frame work for the castle yesterday- huge set and great fun.

So Long...

So we come to the end of another year- it's good to see the same classy people always seem to turn up in drama class.
Bye Diane, Kimmy, Brian, TJ, Tiffany and Samuel- We are proud to know you, happy to have performed with you and excited to see what the future holds for you... impress us!

Tell Me It Ain't So!

I just read that Patrick Swazy will be playing the part of Nathan Detroit in the London production of Guys and Dolls. I thought London was the hub of classical theatre? First David Hasselhoff in Peter Pan and now Swazy?

The Drama Proma

Today we had a prom. Our theme was... The 80's: You make me want to vomit except for the music and a select few episodes of the Cosby Show. Many dressed up, many just wore what they usually do and seemed to fit right in. We had a runway walk off (yes, a salute to Zoolander) to decide who best personified the 80's in style and attitude. And the winners were...
Best male/ female ego battle went to Tj & Kimmy. As usual, Tj's performance included fire arms and dominating violence. Best style went to Gretchen for her bedazzled jumpsuit, complete with a rhinestone belt of metallic pleather along with Rachel for her even though I'm not doing ballet, I'm wearing a tutu skirt. Klara and Brian won best runway attitude which personified the generation of 80's teenagers trying to "find themselves" without the influence of Boy George and Cultrue Club. And finally Jennifer represented the boom in population during the 80's. Actually her dress was ten sizes too big and looked like maternity wear. Congratulations to all!
Daniel or Bobert?!?!?
