Opening Night!!!

Tonight was opening night for the production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"!! Mana was so excited! She said she was calm on the outside but was extremely excited on the inside. I will say that I am glad that I was not the only mommy that was nervous today. That was one of the topics of conversations between some of the new to be stage moms I was lucky enough to met. We would sit and talk as we were waiting for our kids after rehearsals. I have a feeling we will be getting to know a lot more about each other in the coming years. Mana's call time was 5 pm. I dropped her off at the theatre and headed back home to get ready. Brian came in from work and then when he was ready we were off to the theatre. The show was scheduled to start at 7:30 pm, but they had some technical problems so it started around 8 pm. Brian and I sat on the second row on the right hand side. There really is not a bad seat in the house. I had thought that I had tickets in the middle, on row B. I was a little upset I didn't pay attention to that. In the first act the kids were on the back of the stage and part of the backdrop was blocking my view of Mana. I could see about half of her. From what I saw, she did great. During intermission, I asked if I could have my seats changed for the Saturday show, because there is no way that my sister and nieces were going to drive two hours and not be able to see her clearly in the show. I just have to call them on Friday to get them changed. In the second act, the kids were up front for most of it, so we could see her great! All the actors did a great job. I can't wait to go back and see it again. I told my husband that I wanted to see it more times then two if I could. I just can't help it. I want to see every show, since my kid is in it!! (That will not happen!) It was a wonderful energetic show. I highly recommend going to see it!! Here is a blog that is written from one of the actors.

I had to take one of her afterwards!)
