Pictures from Ticket to the Real World.....

Here are some pictures from the play.  It is FABULOUS!!  Funny, yet with a message.....excellent writers which were all kids from the ages of 11 - 17.  Lexi was not a writer but just performed in the play.  These first two are before the play started and practicing a lift performed during her solo.  
Very basic stage so the "stars" shine!!!  You can click and enlarge this photo to see the characters.  I have put their names beside them.
The girl kneeling is the camera person.  This is played like it is a show on TV so when "Evelyn" the witch (Lexi) is on stage she is usually there "filming".  This is during a vote off scene.  The fairy tale misfits are voting off members to try to get to the "real world".  Kind of like a scenario from Big Brother.  They also do a confession booth....FUNNY! 
Hmmmm, there is a problem because they are trying to vote off someone that Evelyn doesn't want voted off.
A scene with the guards (that are part of Evelyn's staff) are holding Tito the world's smallest giant.
Opening night was last night and WOW they all did even better than rehearsal.  It is the excitement of the audience.   My parents got into town late last night and can't wait to go see her tonight.  I bet they will want to go to ALL of the shows!   Lexi did a great job on her solo and I'll share that video with you on Monday.  Hope you all enjoy your weekend.  You know what we will be doing.....♥

Hi Darlene, I would so love to see Lexi in her play. It looks like it would be so entertaining. Can't wait to see your video.

I am very pleased to have my oldest daughter here for several days. We are having a great visit in spite of her shoulder surgery. She is doing pretty well. It is painful though.
Right now she is visiting my sister who lives behind me. I know they are having fun and I am glad.

Have a wonderful time with your parents and viewing the play.
Hugs, Jeanne

I'm so proud of her, Darlene, and I can't wait to see the video of her solo. She is something else! And that last shot of her looks SO grown up. She's growing up before our very eyes, and she is so lovely.
