85-100/365 Another Openin' Another Show

WOW! What a wonderful, talented group of people with whom to perform! I have been involved with the Troupers since 2004 and our shows are always fun and demanding! We are so fortunate to have a first class director at the helm. Thanks, Bruce, for being you! This year he asked me to co-direct our Broadway revue, along with a very talented gal, Helen. Bruce still did the bulk of the work, but we are trying to lighten his load!

All proceeds from the show went to help fund our Vacation Bible School and the youth mission programs (Uganda, Colorado, Summer in the City). After all the bills were paid we were able to give these groups $2400!

About the photos: Yikes! Shooting in the dark is tough! The photos below are some of the best shots I was able to get the night of our final dress rehearsal. Unfortunately, I did not get shots of everyone in the cast and crew, and there were some shots that were so blurry or otherwise so bad, that I did not post them. Of course, the photographer doesn't get in too many shots, but, in this case, that meant that the ensembles I was singing with did not get in those shots either. :0(

"You have much to learn, young grasshopper." Yes...I do.
