Music Man Auditions

Thanks to all who inquired about the "Wizard of Oz" tickets. They are all gone now; I'm glad others will be able to join us!! The kids are all doing fantastic work! On Sunday night, Shayla (along with 45-50 other kids) auditioned for "The Music Man", playing at the Ritz in May. While on our way there, Shayla said, "What would it be like if both Christi and I were trying out and only one of us made it?" We discussed that for a while. Shayla has been noting a lot of faint rainbows in the sky recently and she continues to reflect upon her sister at those times. As Laura has told me, I must get those memories recorded before they are gone. Laura and Olivia's brother (Manny) died 14 years ago on Sunday. I know it's a tough month for them. They miss him so much and he's been gone for so long. We won't know until Friday if Shayla got a part in the Ritz's musical or not, but I'm certain my mom (who is entirely too far away in the winter) would like to see / hear Shayla on stage. Shayla had a delightful two hours spent at auditions. She clapped for every single child and appeared to be having a grand time reading, singing and dancing. She has her fingers crossed that she gets a certain part, but I know she'll be thrilled just to make the "chorus kids". Hopefully, that will come true for her on Friday. Enjoy the little video clips, Grandma Nonee!
