What an adventure! If you've followed me here (or Facebook/twitter) then you've heard me talk about "this play" I've been involved with for the last 3 months. It kept me insanely busy for a while and there was always something to be done for it, tweaked, discussed, made, etc. BUT - it was A LOT of fun!
I gave of my time for the elementary school musical. 90 kids singing and dancing in Alice in Wonderland with a Preshow of an enhanced version of Oh the Places You'll go!
5 performances packed into 4 days and as of last night it's all done!
We tend to say - "I don't have time for that." I never said that but just jumped in for the challenge and the experience. Sure I am busy and yes it was hard to juggle everything sometimes but I wouldn't trade it for the experience it gave me with this awesome group of kids and my chance to be a tiny part of that.
They won't remember the 3 months of practices everyday before school....they won't remember the long days of performances and rehearsals....they probably won't even remember me.....BUT they will remember how they felt on stage....they will remember being in the spotlight, having a crowd cheer, singing like a rock star and all the fun games they got to play backstage. And that makes it all worth it!
(pssst....there's always time to do good)
So - what's my next adventure/project? there's always something brewing or up my sleeve! stay tuned....
