Saturday night was an amazing night of the show, though the heat was incredible and the inside of the theater was intolerably hot. I think it put a bit of a damper on the show because the audience was all dopey from the heat, but the show must go on. People came in droves, the theater was packed and it was almost beyond standing room only. We saw many friends, and it was really nice evening if not for the discomfort. J,I and SS came out, we haven't seen them in ages, and that was nice. The list of people who came out to support the show is too long to list, but thanks to them all for their time.
I thought the performers did a great job, though there were a few mistakes made, but they kept it rolling and remained poised. And, as usual, it was another late night for the kids.
A did a stand up job, and got a ton of compliments. I spoke with a drama teacher from the next town (one of the best performers in the show) and she enthusiastically asked me if A would be interested in participating in her drama camp over the summer. However, she mistakenly thought that A was older, and her camp is for 5th grade and up. Bummer. Oh well, next time. I took the fact that she was so open to A taking part and approached us as a good sign. She is so nice to A, and the fact that they worked together and are now friends may encourage A to give it a go, but we'll see.
The show got another standing ovation, even though the crowd was more subdued. The huge turnout was fed by positive word of mouth, as was told. What a great thing, people loved the first night and told their friends to check it out, so they came.
One more show to go. I'm not sure how much more of this I can take, but also don't know what I'm going to do when it's over. Maybe make a dumpling or two.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to trevor kirpaul for the pic.
