I was at Lowe's this morning getting paint mixed. As I waited, I wandered back to the Christmas section where they are beginning to put out decorations. I love the first time you start to see Christmas decorations appearing on the store shelves! Anyway, I see this thing perched among all the tacky and awful robots that are being created these days, but this one is different. The Santa sounds like a jazz singer and the reindeer are his back ups that dance and spin and shake. I stood there and laughed like a maniac. I kept waving my hand in front of it to activate the motion sensor until I had heard his entire production number. You have to go see this thing! Granted, maybe it wasn't that great and maybe I am just tired from late night scenery painting, or maybe I am just ready for a little Christmas cheer. Either way, it made my morning.

It has just been announced that the first professional stage performance of High School Musical will be produced at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. You may or may not admit it, but the Disney Channel movie is pretty entertaining. If nothing else, it has gotten a whole new group of young people interested in performing and the theatre. To that we can say "bravo"! Read about it here.

I found an interesting video of rehearsals for the upcoming limited engagement of Les Miserables on Broadway this fall. It is very exciting to hear the music and see the revolving floor. Check it out here. As another note, the London production just became the longest running current musical in the world.
