Beauty & The Beast

Last night, we put a wrap on Mackenzie’s middle school drama career.  She was cast as “Belle” in Beauty & The Beast.  The casting was done before Christmas, and the cast & crew have worked on the show all this time.

It’s been a crazy week.  Dress rehearsals Monday & Tuesday, Teacher’s Performance on Wednesday night, and the show was open to the public for performances on Thursday & Friday.  With Mackenzie being cast in the lead and having multiple wardrobe changes, Carie spent a lot of time back stage with her during all the performances this week.

Let me just say that she was AWESOME!.  I know I’m a little biased, but this is the show she’s always wanted to do and it showed.  She nailed the musical numbers and I think her acting was spot on.  And, when little girls dressed in their Belle ball gowns come to the show and wait in line afterwards for her autograph, well it just doesn’t get much better than that.

Here are the obligatory photos:





After the show, we hosted the cast & crew at our house for pizza and treats.  That amounted to 40 kids and a dozen adults.  And, I only received one phone call about the kids playing tag in the neighborhood at 10:30.  I’d call it a good party.

And a link to some additional photos. (I’ve got over 200+ photos of the show if anyone is REALLY interested).

There are also a ton of photos (mine and others) at
