"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

Going Live!

How do I describe how I felt last night when we finally performed in front of a live audience?

Exhilarating!

Thrilling!

Exciting!

Fabulous!

I asked myself a gazillion times…

“WHY HAVEN’T I DONE THIS BEFORE?!?!?”

Seriously.

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!

“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!

Plays are SO much work, but they can be fun. I love being a part of production like that.
