25 Years: Broadway to Bluffdale

Bluffdale Arts' Fall production was a "25 Years: From Broadway to Bluffdale".  It was a Broadway review with many musical numbers from many of the shows they have staged over the past 25 years.  As always, Bluffdale Arts is very inclusive and you didn't have to have been in the past shows to be a part of this show.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE activities that we can all do as a family.  Abe and I were going to be in it as well, but then life and schedules got the better of us.  We participated by helping the little people with costume changes, and getting them all to their various rehearsals.  This picture was taken at a dress rehearsal.
Faith, Cannon, and George cleaned up real purdy to reprise their role as Munchkins, but they got quite a kick out of getting dirty and wearing rags around.  Faith was an orphan for "It's a Hard-Knock Life" and the boys became Lost Boys for "I Won't Grow Up".  
Cannon is the second in on the right.  George is just to the left of "Peter".
Cannon was pretty stoked to be one of three Lost Boys with a microphone.
Cannon also lost a tooth Saturday morning before the shows.  He was a little worried about singing without his tooth, but he handled it just fine.
It's a good thing Georgie is so good natured.  Play weeks are long and late.  He is very patient and keeps it together even when we know he's tired.  
Faith had a grand time running and flipping around the gym during the shows with the other orphans. 
I was not above keeping the natives calm with technology.
Cannon is on the left with the yellow pants.
Clark and Bethany were in the opening number, "Lullaby of Broadway".
My favorite picture of Clark on closing night.
Bethany tapping in "Forget About the Boy" from Thoroughly Modern Millie.
Bethany as a Silly Girl in "Gaston" from Beauty and the Beast.
Elinor is in the dark green dress on the left.  Clark is standing and Bethany is in pink.
Age wise, Elinor could have been with the orphans, but height wise, she definitely fit in with the teens.
Elinor is 12.  These girls are 11 and 12.  She is almost my height!
All three big kids were in "Any Dream Will Do" from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat.
 Faith in Annie.
All three older kids were in "Madame Guillotine" from The Scarlet Pimpernel. This was one of their favorite numbers.  Elinor is directly to the left of the man in black.
I loved seeing Clark in "Luck Be a Lady" again.
The final number was "Do You Hear the People Sing" from Les Miserables.  Am I the only one who cries every single time I see anything from this show?  Clark is to the left of Eponine.
The kids are anxiously awaiting the next play.
