Good Morning Gentle Readers,
With his encouragement and expectations, he's got these kids playing way out of their league. Five weeks from casting with twice a week rehearsals and no kid past the sixth grade, the curtain rises. That's professionalism. Sets, costumes, lighting, and sound: as Lumière might say to the dishes, it's all in the presentation. And quite a presentation at that. Both shows played to a full house.
This was Katie's first big break in showbiz and this is Be Our Guest from the final dress rehearsal (no video of the actual show was permitted). Disclaimer: There was something odd about the relationship of the spot light and the camera that seemed to wash out the color of her costume.
