Aladdin

Last night Abigail was in a summer Musical Theater program production (my dad is the producer, director, and started this program 44 years ago!!!)  When I was Abigail's age I was in these summer musical theater productions with my dad.

This was her fourth year.

Annie was in 2015 back here (by the way... we just watched the DVD of her in Annie and it took my breath away... she was just a baby... little baby voice, little cheeks... I'm so glad I have the recording of each show!)

Lion King was in 2016 back here 

Music Man was in 2017 back here

*********************************************************************************
This year was Aladdin!!!  

Right now as I'm typing I can hear her humming "A Whole New World"...

This was before the show that evening... a little something to remember the show.

And then before the show starts I always take a photo of Abigail and Grandpa.

I've talked about the "Circle" back here. (and here) I can never resist taking these photos. They are powerful moments that my Dad gives these kids!

And just like that, it all ends. She cried the next day during the cast party. She really didn't want it to end! I can rememeber that feeling when I was eleven. It's more about the people you're with then the actual show... it's saying goodbye to friends and the costumes and the dances.

But we move on to the second half of our summer. There are exciting things to look forward to and long days spread before us as summer is not even half way over.
