Did you miss the performances? Seriously? They we simply amazing. And it seemed like each one was better than the one that came before. Congratulations to everyone involved. Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Breault, Mrs. Nemier-Green and Mrs. Loclin for their leadership. Thanks as well to all the performers, the stage crew, the pit band, the folks who sold flowers and snacks and the little souvenir dogs. It takes many hands to make a great show but the heavy lifting was handled by the directors and the performers. Once again I heard many wonderful comments from the audience as they exited the auditorium. People are amazed that every year the younger students step up and some new-comers make their presence felt. Even though we lose talented seniors it seems like there are many ready, willing and able people ready to take over. There are MANY pictures for you. Mr. Green took over 700 pictures from two performances. Not only did he capture some great moments on stage, but he took time to get some behind the scenes looks. Check out the hard work from the stage crew - the concentration of the pit band - the dedication of the people selling snacks, flowers and more - and (my favorite) the pure joy of Mr. Breault leading it all from conductor's chair. I also added a few pictures I took from the final run through Wednesday evening. YouTube videos are being uploaded throughout the day and should be ready later Monday night. (I have to label them)
When the dust settled on the performance Sunday afternoon many people helped to pack away the musical. Thanks to those people as well. Costumes were packed away. Scenery was pulled apart and boxed up. The instruments and the pit band was cleaned out. Within two hours it looked like nothing happened. But those who were in the crowd know that something special indeed happened. And, I suspect, that special something will happen once again next year. For now though,I am still waiting for that sun Annie kept singing about. 
Thanks again to everyone who made the weekend so special. 

News about ordering a DVD will be posted soon. Thank you for your patience.
