Opening night rocked the rafters! Everything clicked, from the Tarpaulin to the Reprise. The audience was right with us. Kudos to a very talented cast! I still don't know what I did to be included in such an ensemble, but I am so grateful for the opportunity! I think I cried all over Heather (the music director) after the show...I'm still in shock that the songs actually came out of my mouth sounding the same as they did in my head! You have to understand, Dearly Beloved, that such a thing has happened so rarely, even in private, that I was terrified.
There were line bobbles, and song bobbles from most of us, but, over all, the show was brilliant.
At some point, I shall have to have a serious talk with my long-deceased mother...stay tuned for that. The way our parents can continue to influence us from beyond the grave never ceases to astound me!
