There were four shows of Willy Wonka, Jr. I got to attend two of them! Mana did have family and friends attending all of the shows. She had two ladies from GranMary's church come on Friday. They come to every musical she is in!! At the Saturday matinee, her daddy, her daddy's whole family and my sister and her family came. Saturday night, her daddy and I went. Sunday, Mrs. Debbie (Children's Director), my dad and step mom, my friend Sherry and I all came. She was so excited that so many got to come to see her in Willy Wonka, Jr.!

Saturday between shows, they were going to have a cast picnic on the playground. It started to rain. Pump It Up saved the cast party. They let us have the party there and it worked out perfect! The kids had the best time and we were all in air conditioning!!!

I finally got to see Mana in Willy Wonka, Jr. It was the 3rd show. The hubby and I decided on going to two shows only. I usually go crazy and attend as many as the shows as I possible can. That gets expensive quickly. It was wonderful. Everyone in the cast did a great job! Mana was perfect for the part of Grandma Josephina! She was a good Oompa Loompa also! She has had so much fun during the whole process of this musical. Mana made a lot of new friends. Everyone got along like they knew each other for years! Mr. Brad, the director, made it a fun atmosphere to learn in. I can not wait to see the show for my second time!!

Today was a wonderful and fun day! Mana started rehearsals for Willy Wonka the other day. Today was the day she would practice her main part. She got the part of Grandma Josephina and an Oompa Loompa. She is so excited about it. She is having a lot of fun! The director interacts with the children in a positive and fun way. He is not your typical musical theatre director. After rehearsals today, he even sat down to eat with the kids and talked to them and then played on the playground with them. All the kids just love him.
After we got home, we went over to my friend Sherry's house. It started to rain and the kids wanted to go out and play in it. So we let them. I did not have any extra clothes in the car for Mana so she had to borrow some from Sherry. She looked really cute in the oversized clothes.
