back in high school,
i took choir
and was in musicals.
and quit choir after one semester
(because of a certain conflict with the choir teacher. ahem.)
on saturday we returned to our high school
(where we once upon a time we didn't know the other existed)
to see the annual musical.
first of all,
i'm proud to say that my high school is known for putting on amazing shows.
i may be biased, but seriously,
we are good.
i think the area must breed very talented high school kids or something.
so let's talk about CATS...
no exactly my most favorite musical ever.
music and dancing are awesome,
but the plot, or lack there of, doesn't exactly draw you in.
but i had heard really good things about VHS's production...
so we went.
and we were BLOWN away!
man, if i didn't know any better, i would've believed it was a traveling Broadway company.
those little high school kids OWNED it
and it was absolutely amazing!
it made me miss theatre so much.
one day, when i'm not working 30 hours and taking 21 credits and planning a wedding,
i'll do a show again.
so, this is matt.
he one of my high school friend's little brother.
when matt was like 12 i was teaching him how to do pirouettes in their kitchen.
and now... he was pretty much the main dancer in this show.
and he's about 100 times the dancer i ever was.
he's going to be famous one day.
i know it.
to all my fellow vikings:
wonderful job! we loved it!
