Last year, Sophie was lucky enough to get to be a part of our high school's production of "Beauty and the Beast." Having some elementary and middle school kiddos involved in the play was such a big hit last year, the director decided to do it again.
There were over 60 kids that auditioned to be munchkins. I think they chose 16?? We were pretty proud of our girl. =)
Once again, our high school put on an amazing show! For being such a small school (a 4A school in a 1A town...) it's really impressive. They also showed some actual photographs and video footage from the 2008 tornado that destroyed most of the high school. Several people commented on how emotional it was to see that footage again.
All my pictures are from dress rehearsal and aren't the best. I was being lazy and choosing to sit further back with a friend, instead of moving closer for better shots. I did move closer for the munchkin scene, though. =)
Miss Gulch/The Wicked Witch was one of my favorite characters this year. His mom (yep... HIS) works at my school and he did SUCH a great job!
See the cute munchkin, creeping out from behind the mushroom...
The munchkin scene was by far the most colorful...
It was definitely the happiest scene in the whole play. =)
The Lollypop Guild...
All 4 of these kids did an awesome job!
Sophie also had a couple special visitors Friday night... (Thank you, Danielle and Abi, for making the drive! It meant so much to both of us!)
Thank you, Mrs. E, for the amazing opportunity you gave my girl!
We are thankful for you! =)
