BUT, before the performance, we wanted to give her the FULL experience of "life in the theatre."
After a quick drive thru at Taco Bell, we got to the theatre to enjoy a scarfing down o' the taco.
Arriving at the door of the theatre. Apparently the sun was a leetle to bright.
Ok, that's better.
Maggie LOVES her Daddy so much.
Such nutritional dinner fare.
Standing in the doorway of the stage.
Maggie was absolutely rapt watching Daddy put on his makeup. Honestly, I just could not get over how adorable she was and how completely absorbed she was in it all.
I Lurve this little face! She felt so cool to be there and a part of all of it.
Looking over the pitt and taking a walk onstage.
The London Bridge set up and a shot of Fagins fireplace.
And finally a couple of shots of Jer in costume with Maggie.
Maggie kept asking if Daddy was in his "Mr. Bumblebee" outfit. It cracked me up. She loved seeing everyone else getting ready and running around with the kids. Of course everyone was totally in love with her as well. Especially if she actually talked to them.
I had to have a little chat with her the other day about how when people say hi to her, or ask her questions then she MUST answer. It's the polite thing to do. So, she's been doing better at actually responding to people.
But now.....possibly my FAVORITE picture EVER!
Could you just DIE?! She wanted to match Mr. Bumble"bees" look.
Man I love that kid.
You will all be so pleased to know that she did a pretty dang good job getting through the show. She INSISTED on sitting in literally the WORST seats in the house, BUT she sat watching that show in complete awe. And she didn't yell out and talk to Daddy, which was a relief. Never mind that we had a snafu or two as well. A freaking compressor went off in the shop right in the middle of a song. Lights bleeding onto the syke, backstage door not getting closed and hearing all the kids yelling off stage, light cues called at the wrong time, etc. OY! At least we had our biggest and best audience to counter act those things. Because of COURSE it got videoed last night. Anyway.....It was only just at the very end that Maggie got super antsy and defiant. She wanted to go ON the stage. So, I ran down with her blanket and held her on my lap and she was great the rest of the time. Now she's asking when she gets to come again. Perhaps I'll let her try again on Saturday afternoon.
I don't know....I think we might have a little theatre lover on our hands.
Tomorrow, I'll have to tell you about the POO that this morning was. OY!
Show stoppers and star struck,
