Broadway Bound

Singing and dancing on Broadway…about to hit the big stage…their first major production…okay, it’s community theatre. It doesn’t really matter because we gots drama in our house and we gots alot.

We also gots two eager people who wanted to audition for the next production presented by our local theatre company. I got excited and then they got excited and then I got excited all over again. Along with our drama we also gots a lot of excitement.

The people doing the audition humored me for a moment, but after that, I was politely ushered out of the room, so I really don’t know how River or Lily performed. I am almost certain that they didn’t give them as much drama as I sometimes get in one day. Why do our children do us that way?

While we waited, Canyon quickly found something to entertain himself.

I was asked if he too wanted to audition. If they had seen his last performance, then they would have known better than to ask.

You see, Canyon often does what he wants to do when he wants to do it and if he doesn’t feel like performing, then the show will not go on.

At the ripe new age of four, he already gots a lot of drama. I would love to blame my sister for all of the drama that my children have, but I’m sure I’m really the one to blame. My children come by it naturally. They gots a lot of drama just like their mommy.

gots” – I’ve been hearing this word a little too much around the house lately – has, has, has – “gots” ain’t a word!

I am excited to report that River (shepherd) and Lily (angel in the choir) both got parts in the play.

Also, if you happen to be in Dallas (at the Dallas Theater Center) or Chicago (at the Goodman Theatre), then you can see my sister Karen on the stage in the world premiere of The Trinity River Plays. She is definitely one to not miss.

Oh yeah, you can also see Karen in Dilemma which is coming to a theater near you January 14.

  • Congrats on all of your family hitting the big time. :) I bet your kids will be a great shepherd and angel.

    Marilyn,
    I think it runs in the blood; drama. How many mommies have said that? I’m thinking they will be the best shepherd and angel this side of the Mississippi River.

    How exciting! Yeah kiddos for getting parts in the production.

    I wish I was close enough to either of those cities to see your sister in action. Maybe one day!

    Rana,

    They both were so excited. We are winding down to the last few weeks of rehearsal. Although the play will be over in a few weeks, I know the drama will continue in our home. My new saying to Lily is, “save some of that drama for the stage.” That always works to send an overly dramatic crier into a fit of laughter.

    Yes, one day and be sure to not miss her perform when you get the chance.

    I just looked at the links for The Trinity River Plays, Oh my goodness now I really wish I was close enough to see it. I love Regina Taylor and this play sounds amazing. Will you be able to go see your sister in it this winter?

    Rana,

    The play does sound quite interesting. What is really cool is that Regina wrote the part w/Karen in mind to play the lead. I know I won’t make Dallas (Texas – me – Cowboys – NEVER), but I’m holding out to see if I can escape to Chicago. My mother and her sisters will make it to Chicago. Yes, to see Karen perform is definitely a treat.
