This weekend marked the opening of a wonderful show starring Mia and Beth. Okay, maybe they weren't the stars but they certainly were in my book.
There's community theater - cheesy productions staged by wannabe directors and suburban divas - then there's community theater - shows put on by passionate people who want not only to have fun and put on a good show but be do so with the people in their community with whom they share a passion. This was the latter of the two. As an observer - one who wouldn't dare walk on a stage or even sing in front of my best friends - the whole thing is wonderful. They endured snow and ice, cancelled school days and scrapped rehearsals. And all those cancelled rehearsals resulted in even longer rehearsals, endless hours running through lines and rehearsing music. But this great group of talented, committed people pulled it off.
I'm proud of the women in my life. Beth and Mia love this stuff. They love to sign and dance and perform in front of people. And they do it very, very well. They are exhausted but they did it, and they did it together. That's pretty damn cool.Posted by Chris at February 25, 2014 6:10 AM | TrackBack
