Can I just say, "Dream come true!!"?? As long as I can remember CJ and I have talked about being able to do plays together. Since I was a kid I had dreamed of having a lead in a play, but never really thought it could happen because I ain't much of a singer. We had talked about doing this locally written and produced play in Richfield "A Field of Stars" since the first year we saw it...probably 7 years ago. We finally got ourselves to do it, 1) because we weren't going anywhere big during that timeframe, 2) we really wanted our children to do this play! Viana and Brooke have done such a great job being involved in the high school productions that we really wanted them to have this opportunity, plus we could introduce Ram and CharlyAnn to the stage through "A Field of Stars." So, CJ took the kids to the audition--I honestly don't remember where I was or what I was doing, but I got a phone call from her telling me that I should come. I did and in less than a minute CJ and I were singing a duet of "The Star Spangled Banner" for our audition. We got a call back and walked through the blocking of a song, and then, just like that we were announced as the lead roles of Johnny and Mary and we would be singing solos galore!!!! :) Wow! I honestly still can't believe it. Did I mention that this was a DREAM COME TRUE!? We had such a great time getting to know so many wonderful people, taking voice lessons from the incredibly talented Raina Williams, learning and getting into American History, and then performing and having people we love and know, and some we didn't even know, watch and support us and even be kind enough to tell us we did a great job! SO FUN!! So Great! DREAM COME TRUE!!
Here I am in my Johnny costume, make-up and all... :) Kinda glad it's really blurry!
