The Final Curtain


Saying goodbye to a show is never easy.


I find that I tend to 'watch' the final show in slow motion. I enter the stage and think, "well, that's the last time I get to make that entrance," or after a favorite line I will think, "and that's the last time I get to say that on stage."


The opportunity to portray a character on the stage, to be given the privilege of bringing that part to life is always an honor. And this part, this show, especially, was a joy.


I am missing it terribly already and we have been dark for only 4 hours.

Bravo, Bravo!

Are you doing The Best Christmas Pageant Ever? I really want to see that one!

Also do you know any info on the Magenta Youth Theatre? My 8 year old is wanting to get involved in theatre.........

You have me suffering from "post production" blues and I wasn't even in it...

I agree... this show was special. I hope that California is sun-shining away your blues. :0)

Awww, I wish I could have seen this! Looks like it was so much fun! I remember when I was really little...like 3rd or 4th grade little, I went to the PCC Spaghetti Auction with Jenni Miller and you did a play there...i can't remember which one it was..I think a version of Cinderella or something. Oh the memories!
