A Beauty and a Star!

It's been another busy weekend. Laura was home (again!) because we had a very special event to attend. My nephew's daughter, my beautiful great-niece Mallory, was starring in her middle school Musical Production of Beauty and the Beast. And as you can see - she IS a Beauty! Laura and I were both SO very proud of her - she played Belle with such confidence and poise. She had great stage presence and truly did shine! The voice lessons she has been taking this year have certainly given her greater voice control, strength and projection. She never missed a line and played her character with great emotion. The entire cast did a wonderful job. There was a good deal of talent onstage, for sure. It was not hard to tell they were all having such fun. I know Laura and I were both re-living our onstage experiences in musical productions as we watched. This is such a character-building experience for young people as they must be very committed to it for a good deal of time throughout the school year. Well done Mallory, and Congrats to all the cast for a terrific job. Our thanks and appreciation also go to all the staff and other adults who as well put in a tremendous amount of time and effort to such a huge project. Kudos to all!


"..Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong
Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast.."

~Lyrics from "Beauty and the Beast".
Songwriters Howard Ashman & Alan Menken
