Go, Go, Joseph!

The past five weeks have been a whirlwind of rehearsals and performances of the West Side Civic Theatre's production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Starring SFC's very own eldest child, Katie.

Okay, not exactly starring. But she was in the ensemble and as far as I'm concerned, she was the star.
Can you find her? It's like she hears me take the camera out of the bag.

It was a fantastic show (Julia saw it FIVE TIMES, not mention numerous rehearsals and listening to the CD in the car non-stop) with an awesome theater company and, while it was exhausting for her, she is so sad that it's over.

Oddly enough, so am I.

The morning of the last show, she auditioned for a Little Theater production. 78 girls and she made it to the final 20 for 12 parts...and then didn't get in. She was disappointed but had a good attitude, and not making it is as much a part of the experience as making it.

She's an amazing kid.


  1. While mom and dad had other commitments the day of the Little Theater auditions I went with Katie. I was nervous, she was cool and confident. She amazes me when it comes to performing, she is just a natural born actress! Can't wait for her next opportunity.

  2. Way to make us look like a-holes, Mom. Thanks for taking up our slack.

  3. The adoration from a little sister is such a beautiful thing!

  4. Hey she made it further than my #2 did.. but then again, I was fishing and unable to be the proper stage mum. ;)

  5. It is close to hero worship, Michelle. It is good to hear that someone is as slack a stage mom as me, Kristen!
