SHE MADE IT!!!


Phyllis tried out for the musical at her school, Little Shop of Horrors.

Phyllis happens to belong to the OA Club (that’s over-achievers) for you who do not carry the card. The day they found out about what musical they were doing, Miss Phyllis text me to order it for her…lol…

She practiced and practiced. She went to auditions on Monday and Tuesday, they held her late on Tuesday. Wednesday was callbacks! Last night, I have no idea what time it was, she checked the website (I actually think she got up in the middle of the night!) and she was in!! She was very excited.

I’m so proud. She almost didn’t try out because she was afraid of the small cast that she wouldn’t make it. I told her “try out, it’s a good experience, even if you don’t make it, but you will, you’ll be more experienced for next year”.

This proud mama is taking her to the doc tomorrow to get those knees checked out, and then our household will be “little shop of horrer”ing it for the next 2.5 months!

Congratulations to Miss Phyllis!
You have every right to be proud, have fun listening to the Horror's sound track! Plays are so time consuming...but well worth it all!

Great news! One of my happiest memories was making the "OKLAHOMA" musical when I was in high school. I was a dancer and the numbers were such fun! I even tried out for the part of "Ado Annie" but someone much better suited for the part got it. Still, it was a fun experience and gave me wonderful memories. She'll in all liklihood, feel the same way down the road!
