Per Songbird: "Whether it was on Broadway or at your neighborhood elementary school, name five experiences of the performing arts that have touched or tickled you."
Church Youth Group Musicals (directed by my dear and intrepid mom)
1) It's Cool in the Furnace - the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace.
2) Everyone Calls Him Sir - the story of Naaman, the man God healed of leprosy (and pride) via a washing in the Jordan River. I played Naaman. I was one of the oldest and tallest, and we had no boys. :)
3) Beauty and The Feast - the story of Esther. I seem to recall that I was Haman - ditto the oldest, tallest, no boys thing.
High School Musicals:
4) Oklahoma! - Was in the chorus. Any big project you do in such a group is a memory maker.
5) Once Upon A Mattress - Chorus again. Was in love with my "best boyfriend ever until I met DH," who played the male lead, and it was such a sweet time.
6) Mozart Requiem - December 5, 1991 with the Brazos Valley Chorus, local university & high school choirs, and Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra -
This was the 200th anniversary of Mozart's death and much was made of the fact. It was very BIG and powerful. It was extremely big for me because my grandmother and grandfather had died on October 10 and 26 of that year. I was able to be with my grandfather for the last few weeks of his life and classical music had been one of his big loves, so I sort of dedicated the performance to Bigdaddy, personally.
