With the exception of Clark, George, and Peter, we were all in Brigadoon with Bluffdale City Arts.
The last week is Monday thru Saturday 6-10 pm. That makes for a wild week trying to keep up with school (which we don't), keep up with meal preparation (not that either), keep up with laundry (not even close) and get enough sleep (I WISH!). It throws the whole family way out of balance.
Is it worth it? I think so. The thing I love the most about doing these plays together is the family bonding time. The working all together towards the same goal. The shared memories. Brigadoon is now a part of our family's culture. We know the same songs. We experienced the same trauma of waiting until the absolute last minute for the costumes to be ready. We understand the same jokes. We know the same people.
With a couple of exceptions I don't think our family is particularly talented in the theater. Most of us are background ensemble material (maybe I just speak for myself). But I suppose in community theater that doesn't matter too much.
This evening (Sunday) he was quite contented to get to go to bed at his regular time, instead of 11:30 at night.
