A night at the theater! ...Actually, two nights.

For Christmas, my parents were ever so kind and purchased gift cards to Derby Dinner Playhouse for Carl and I to see a play! It took us awhile to find a good time to go, and ironically we made reservations for the same weekend as my sister's musical! Our weekend as follows:

Friday, March 23: Angela and Autumn starred in South Oldham High School's "Beauty and the Beast"! Okay, they weren't technically the stars, but you know I watched only them when they were on stage. :) Yes, the main characters were there too, but I would constantly point out for Carl and Amelia "Look, there's Angela!" or "Can you see Autumn?" I always felt like I had to search for Autumn, and she would always be on top of a platform. I don't know how I would miss her in the first place :P Angela played a silly girl, a dancing knife, and a mobster. I loved watching her as the mobster; she looked like she was going to really kill someone ;) Autumn was a villager and a dancing fork! I loved how she would always interact with her fellow villagers; such a cute performer!
Me and Tim!
Saturday, March 24: We ended up seeing a performance titled "Smokey Joe's Cafe" at Derby Dinner Playhouse. I was a little hesitant because, as you might be able to tell, this was going to be a performance with nothing but oldies hits from the '40s and '50s. When it comes to music, I'm game for almost everything BUT oldies. It just never struck a cord with me. I ended up loving the show, and Carl and I came away singing a few tunes :) I've been to Derby Dinner in the past, and I have never been disappointed with their shows. Their charisma, playfulness, and professionalism just make it so easy and entertaining to watch.

(No pictures; I didn't want to get in trouble!)

Needless to say, we had a fabulous weekend :)

  3. How fun! I love LoVe LOVE musicals, especially Beauty and the Beast. Was this a school thing, or a stake thing. The stage looks like its at a stake center lol?!
