My parents came to see the performance on Saturday and loved it. Several friends came too, which I really appreciated. Not everyone made it because of ill health, and also the weather was not kind to those who were travelling from further afield.
The story of Beauty and the Beast is most definitely a favourite in our house now. The girls love singing all the songs, in fact Sophie was gutted that she wasn't allowed to be in the Mob Song or the Gaston song (set in a tavern)! Alex was more concerned that she hadn't been chosen to be a teacup, but unfortunately we were on holiday when the auditions took place back in August. Alex also managed to fall head first off a chair whilst sat backstage this evening, and whacked her forehead nicely. She's got an impressive lump and bruise, bless her!
I love being part of the drama team at church, it is an amazing team to serve on and so rewarding when we get to the final shows. Both girls thoroughly enjoyed being involved this year, Sophie was in Scrooge last year but this was Alex's first year. Somehow I think we will be back next year, and we will make sure we are at the auditions so we get a look in for more of a part!
