So we had a great opening weekend! Whitney came through, adding more songs everyday, and today she sang all her songs and said all her lines. WOW. And all our songs went smoothly, and we had so much fun. And we were all THRILLED when our director informed us we're adding two shows next weekend: a Friday night and a Sunday matinee. I'm glad, 'cause I would've been incredibly sad if today was our last day. It's crazy how attached you can get to a cast sometimes :D 


  1. I knew you would pull it off, Jo! <3 So blessed for you! Looks like a very *bright* show!

  2. I know exactly how you feel, Jo — our dance recitals are the same mix of giddy excitement and sadness that it's all over so quickly. (At least y'all get to do several shows; we only have one recital :P). I'm so glad it went well, and that Whitney was able to perform. One of these days I'm going to have to make it up to VA to see one of your shows . . . they sound fantastic. :)

    Love you,

  3. Wow...reading all these Birdie posts are making me sad. PSD. :(
