How do I describe how I felt last night when we finally performed in front of a live audience?
I asked myself a gazillion times…
“WHY HAVEN’T I DONE THIS BEFORE?!?!?”
The adrenaline rush amazing. When we were on stage for our final bows, I found myself crying because:
1) our first night is over and you can’t ever repeat opening night
2) we only have 3 more performances left and I want MORE!
3) WE GOT A STANDING OVATION!!!
The theater wasn’t full… opening night usually has sparse attendance… but from where I stood, it looked like everyone on their feet.
That totally makes all the hard work, sweat and exhaustion worth it.
We put together a show that is full of fun and entertainment that our community LOVED!
That’s Oliver sitting to the right of Inigo. ^ Do our orphans look hungry?^
“The Artful Dodger” is front and center. ^ This dance is “Consider Yourself.”^
She did an amazing job!
I can’t wait for tonight’s performance!
(We will be playing to an almost full house.)
