Ha ha – see what I did with that title? Made you think I’d gone someplace warm and sunny. No, I stayed here last week to enjoy the rainy, snowy, 30 degree weather that Michigan calls April. But I am back from the beach that the Pirates of Penzance landed on. We closed the curtain on another fabulous Homeschool Performing Arts production. And it was so, so good.
I’m still not a huge fan of all the singing – can’t someone just tell me the line instead of singing it?! – but I must admit, I did end up liking the show. Our kids did a great job and the directors outdid themselves. Really, really fabulous.
Pretty sure I wouldn’t choose to go see the musical again, but at least I ended up with an appreciation of it. Of course, it helped that I had the cutest policeman and most adorable orchestra conductor in the mix.
Amy with her 'stache.
Top row - some of the great people I work with all year. Other rows - some of the great kids I work with. Love them bunches!
It was a family affair again. This time, Michael ushered several shows.
Policemen (and three women).
Rebecca and her buddy Carly were my support staff. (Sorry it's such a bad picture, ladies!)
At one point, the whole cast wore these blue mustaches to surprise me - it worked!
Love that conductor!
