Well, this is the big weekend. The final practice was tonight, the grandparentses are all four here, the tickets are bought and the play is eagerly awaited. Tomorrow they will play selected scenes for groups of elementary school kids and then for their own school. Tomorrow night is Opening Night. Then comes the Saturday Matinee, followed by Closing Night, then the Cast Party Sunday morning is Tear Down. 10 weeks of practice, costuming, learning to apply make-up, set building, practicing with mikes, stage crew learning how to be stage crew, lighting crew ditto... All boils down three days, zillions of cheering relatives, 79 cow- and farmgirls and 20-something cow- and farmboys singing Oklahoma in tune on cue...

Needless to say there has been much housecleaning and the requisite homework happening here and not much else. Certainly no spinning. See you next week.

Elizabeth, treasure these times. It is difficult to believe how much you miss them when they are in college and you just drive down for a performance.
