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.
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.
