Stage Bound

It feels like a lifetime ago that I  portrayed the absolutely wacky and utterly lovable Essie Carmichael in the hilarious stage play, You Can't Take it with You. The candy making, love-sick, wanna-be ballerina was my favorite among all the varied roles I played during my theatrical years at Homestead High school.

It came as quite a surprise last week when Emma came home and informed us that she was planning to audition for a play at OPRF.  Emma is no stranger to dancing on stage, but she has never expressed an interest in acting before. OPRF has a pretty competitive theater department, but despite what she thought were long odds, we were nothing but supportive of her goal; she had a great attitude about the whole thing.  Her first audition lead to a call back and guess what?
This lovely young lady will be an all verbal version of a ballerina as she portrays Essie Carmichael in OPRF's production of You Can't Take it with You this coming December!  I cannot even tell you how amazing this full circle moment feels!  I think she is going to have the time of her life!
Emma we are so proud of you!
