Good Stuff Happening

DTASC Winners!!
One of the moms snapped this pic but I forget who! Thank you for taking it!

Oh, My. Goodness. If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, I’ve been sitting on the other side of this screen fawning over the video performance of THIS group of talented performers.

Yes folks!! These guys took 1st place out of 86 schools at the Drama Teachers Association of Southern California competition! (#DTASC) They won Open Musical which is the toughest category. They did Bonnie & Clyde and they killed it! I am so proud of them.  What’s neat about the competition is that you can only use four chairs as props. It’s so cool.

I got to spend the entire day following these guys around and I have to tell you… I just love being surrounded by talent and music and kids who are just so passionate about what they do.


Next up. We are hosting a Halloween party for theatre this weekend. Should be fun! Needless to say my reading has been sporadic. Need to get back into it next week.

Then, on 11/16 they get to perform at the winner’s showcase! It’s so exciting.

What are you up to this weekend? Dressing up? Parties? Do tell.

UPDATE: I didn’t post the video publicly but if I know you and you’d like to see it and you are not on Facebook, leave me a comment and I will send it to you directly. Some folks have asked and I am more than happy to gush about it.

Time: It Slips Past Me

There is something about this time of year. Time flies. Just the other day I couldn’t believe that it was October and now we are preparing for Halloween and ready to bring in November. Well, some of us are ready. I haven’t bought any candy yet, but we are having a party for the theater kids and no planning has happened for that either.

My husband was sick this past weekend. He pretty much kept to himself but somehow I picked up what he had and now I am down for the count. Still working, but really should be home. Trying not to get The Teen sick. His all-day theater competition is this Saturday. We will all be in attendance and I am wondering if I will make it through the day, but Saturday is a ways off. I could be totally recovered by then.

Reading lots, but in spurts. All I really feel like doing is binge watching Netflix, covered in a blanket, drinking tea.  Alas, it is not meant to be.

So, I will settle for the tea.

What’s new in your world?
