I won’t be reading or posting much for the next little while. After much anticipation (by us) and a much greater amount of work (by the cast and crew), Citadel High School is presenting Jesus Christ Superstar, opening tonight and closing Saturday. Maddie is playing Mary Magdalene. Rehearsals have been intense the last few weeks! Everyone’s dedication is so impressive–not to mention their stamina.
We are very excited to see the show at last: we’re going tonight and again on Saturday. My lovely parents are flying in from Vancouver so that they can see it too. I’m always happy to see my parents, but this visit is particularly meaningful to me, as it has always made me sad not to be able to share these big events with my family. Since Maddie is graduating this year, this will be her last school musical, so I really appreciate that they are coming all this way for the occasion–leaving behind Vancouver’s beautiful spring for our barren mud and snow flurries! I’m sure we will all manage to have a good time despite the unpromising weather.

Best of luck to Maddie! I love the role and the songs, saw a great Stratford version a few years back.
Thank you! The songs really suit her voice well — though we haven’t actually heard her sing them properly yet!
The Bears (a truly theatrical bunch) are devastated that they can’t be there but say to tell Maddie they will be cheering her on from the other side of the Atlantic.
All the best to Maddie. School musicals are so much fun: all the prep, the anxiety of opening day, and then the high of a show well-done. I love the musical and have watched it done a few times, and each time has been a fun experience. Break a leg, Maddie.
