High School Musical 2 Jr. (Summer Play)....

This past weekend it was time to perform High School Musical 2 Jr. and there were four performances.  This is the third summer play that Lexi has been in and she had a blast.  She was a "Sharpette" which is one of Sharpays (the rich, spoiled girl) clique.  In the final dress rehearsal we were allowed to video the songs, but they said we were not allowed to publish it on YouTube, Facebook or anywhere or the company could get sued. I hate that because the songs were great and the dancing so CUTE.  Anyway, this was "What Time Is It".  Lexi is in the black shorts and she and another cheerleader did a back handspring across the stage after the song. 
These are a few of the scenes with the Sharpettes.  In the first picture Lexi had air kissed Sharpay (played by the girl in pink) and announced "Now that you are here the summer can start"!!!! 
These are the Sharpettes doing one of the dances.  There were 8 of them and 3 of them had lines.  Lexi had the most lines :) or actions of this group.  Here they were singing "You Are The Music In Me".
I videoed most of this called Humu Humu.  I will be getting some other pictures from the professional photographer that I will share with you later.  This was a "rehearsal" of a song that they were practicing for the summer talent show that is part of the play.  Everyone LOVED this because it was such an animated and fun song! 
Another scene where the Sharpettes were out with Sharpay.  They were out on stage quite a bit through the play.
Singing the finale song "All For One".
Sharpettes curtain call (taking a bow).
The play was so GREAT and they had fabulous directors.  A lot of hard work, but there are a lot of talented kids in this town.  Lexi will start rehearsals for another summer play called Let's Make a Musical on July 12th.  This is a play where the kids will actually work with a (different) director and write an original play, then perform in it.  This is the first time Lexi will do this play.  We have gone to this play the past two summers and the plays have been wonderful.  I look forward to what they come up with for this one.

How fun for Lexi Darlene. I just love musicals. I think it's so great when young people get to take part in plays and musicals. It is hard work, but they have a good time,learn so much, and make new friends. It's fun to see these pictures. I hate that you can't share the music, but I know the copyright laws are strict.

That sounds like a blast! I love the High School Musical series & wish we could see the video versions. Glad she's enjoying her stage time.

Good morning Darlene, I LOVE this post about the play and the parts Lexi played in it. The Sharpettes are all darling. it is no surprise to me that Lexi gets the most lines. I know you are so proud of her. One day she will be a star and I will say, " I knew her when." Smile. I love the photos and would have been thrilled if I could see the play. You are a terrific mom to encourage her and make sure she is always where she needs to be for 'all' the events she is involved with.

I will be looking forward to the next big play she is doing. Good for her.

Hugs, Jeanne

Good Morning My Friend ~

Fun, fun, fun! Lexi looks like she is having a blast. The High School Musical movies are well written and great fun for all. I can almost hear the music while looking at your pictures.

I hope that you are staying cool and enjoying your looks like you are.

Have a great week.

Hi Darlene
Jessica and I enjoyed these pictures so much. It would have been great to have watched it too but never mind. We both love High School Musical. Lexi looks adorable and a perfect Sharpette!
The Let's Make It A Musical sounds fun. We look forward to hearing all about it.
Lindsay & Jessica

Watch out Broadway!! I know you are so proud of Lexi, Darlene! When Amanda would dance, etc (24+ years ago) I would be so proud that tears would just be streaming down my face (embarrasing) and my heart would feel so full that it might burst! When I see your photos of Lexi and read about her performances, I delight for the joy you must feel! Enjoy every moment of it!! Hugs ~ Noni

Oh, Darlene! What a wonderful time your little Lexi is having! I've said it before - she's so talented! She's as pretty as a picture too! This shows how very disciplined she is, even with having all the fun!
Thanks for sharing these sweet moments with us.
Be a sweetie,

What a great way to spend the summer! Lexi always looks like she is having the best time.
I was thinking about Lexi yesterday-Taylor Swift's cousin (Tia) is a good friend of my son Timmy's and hangs out at my house alot. I guess Tia hangs with Taylor a bunch, because of course, their family! Timmy says there are bunches of pictures of Tia and Taylor together at Tia's house.
We told Tia we have a celebrity cousin too (Sage Erickson) She was in the movie Blue Crush and is one of the top female surfers in the world~ I don't think she was impressed~! LoL!

What fun for Lexie. How wonderful that you have all of this great stuff for her to be apart of.

I'm catching up on your blog as I haven't been able to be around blogs much the last few weeks. Looks like a great summer so far. It goes so fast.
