Life gets busy….
I had the pleasure of attending my niece’s play this weekend, The Wizard Of Oz. She was Glinda, the Good Witch. Of course I loved her. She did such a great job. It was amazing how this middle school production was even better than some HS plays I have attended. It is remarkable to see the culmination of all the hard work of SO many people. A collaboration and labor of love on the part of the adults running the show, to the 172 kids who were part of the production!!! One Hundred Seventy TWO!!! Crazy! The wonderful orchestra, stage crew, light people, ticket takers…the list goes on and on. Even down to the audience, who needed to also play their part by attending. It is an awesome creation….all of these people a part of the “team”…all playing their part to make the show a success! Let’s not forget the businesses, parents, grandparents and even friends who helped to put the program together with ads and shout out pages. It had to be in the hundreds, if not a thousand who took part in the creation of such a beautiful thing. Thank God for the beauty that arose out of the effort of so many. It was truly a beautiful thing. “It takes GRIT!” was a quote from TWOO, apropos to describe this production and for all those involved in its creation! Bottom line, GET out there and GO to a local High School play! Support the arts! You will be glad you did!
