In 3 days this word will be even easier to capture, as it will be opening night and somehow this cast and crew and musicians will pull of yet another miracle. And I, of course, will be wondering how the heck did they do it. They will have put a very large show together, in less than 4 weeks, all while doing their home school’s musicals. It is something that happens quite a bit with this group. They take great pride and are very passionate about it and I am not about to snuff out that passion. It is very much a challenge. A challenge to raise my game and push me to find new, creative, ways to tell the story. And despite the exhaustion, the obstacles, having absolutely no time, and oh yeah, no budget, we will endure and outlast. But for the most part, it still astonishes me that they are this young, this dedicated, and you can bet that they will leave it all on the floor Thursday night. I just wish they didn’t always have to wait that long. I am getting too old for this sh!%. Let your star shine!
