Last night Patrick and I went on a date to see a play: Thoroughly Modern Millie. It was so much fun and the high school students did a fantastic job as always putting on a show. I am so impressed with the talent at such a young age.The play was a fun representation of a young lady moving to the big city from small town America in the 1920's. Of course I loved not only the acting but the costumes were fantastic. Mr. Faris did an amazing job as always getting everything just right. He is an excellent director. Mr. Sweeney's work with the students on their songs was just right.Mrs. Klein worked with the many dance numbers and they did a wonderful job. Lastly, Mr. Nissen, a retired art teacher from CHS, came back to do the beautiful sets. Way to go all!
I would also like to state that this date would not have been possible if not for our great friends the Oxleys. They provided care for Charles while we went out, and let me tell you he just loves going to their house and playing. We reminded him of who he was going to visit before supper, and told him he must eat well in order to go. He ate great! After he finished eating he was in a rush to get us out the door. He kept saying shoes on mommy and daddy. Because we were not moving fast enough he would go get our shoes and bring them to us. In other words it was a great night for everyone.
If you live in the Carroll area you should check into tickets for Saturday night and go support these talented young adults. If you live in other areas check with your local drama teacher at your high school to see when they have their next show. Then go check it out!
