Opening Night

Posted: February 20, 2009 in Family and Friends

Wow. The musical was simply AMAZING last night. The most unbelievable aspect to Jody and I was our constant need to remind ourselves that these were middle school students!!! It has got to be the best middle school production at a public school anywhere in the world. Not that I’m biased or anything.

The bad news for all of you is that we weren’t allowed to take pictures inside the auditorium, so I can’t give you any action shots. Musicals are such a big deal in Malibu, however, that they had taken pictures beforehand and were selling prints outside. Here’s a picture of the picture board, so maybe you can take a gander at that and get a feel for the beautiful sights of the show (and, if you look really close at #41 and see the girl in the crazy red-headed wig, that’s Hillary!).


I did get a picture after the show of Hillary with the amazing girl who played Gertrude in the show. She is an 8th grader and was so sweet to Hillary, just hugging on her and telling her how good she did.


And here’s one more pic of Hillary in the little marketplace set up outside where they were selling pictures, food, and Dr. Seuss hats.


There are four performances on four consecutive days, and the show was so terrific that I think I’ll be sad when we get to the last one Sunday afternoon.
