At the beginning of this school year my now dd17's Tri-M group discovered the muscial was going to be performing at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha. When she asked if we could go I hesitated; (1) because of the cost, (2) I wasn't really sure I wanted to see it. She used teenage tactics and I caved.
The musical was last Thursday. I thought 'what a wonderful way to spend the evening with my daughter and they're taking a bus up, I don't even have to drive'. Imagine my surprise when I found out we were leaving the school at 10:00, sorry boss, guess I'm taking a vacation day.
We were sitting up in the 2nd balcony. When I first sat down I wasn't sure I would even be able to tell if there were people on the stage.
Then the production began, it was AMAZING. I forgot I was sitting in the heavens and that was the fastest 2 1/2 hours I have ever sat through.
The singing was wonderful, the acting was wonderful, the sets were wonderful. Did I mention I loved this musical. I could see it over and over. As for the soundtrack, what else-wonderful.
I am so glad that I decided to go to the musical with her. It was a great musical and better yet it was a GREAT day with my dd17. I hope it's a senior memory she'll have for a long time. I know I will.
