Holiday Moxie

I spoke earlier about taking a bit more risk-- well, one of those "stick your neck out there moments" was my deciding to be a part of our local production of the Nutcracker.  I have never been in the Nutcracker but had always wanted to be.   Kid dreams deferred here we are-- opening night!

It's been YEARS since I have been in a play myself. I have worked/directed countless times but never went out for it myself- so here in the year of Moxie, I am going to play Mother Ginger- which is basically the head on top of a barbie cake- where dancers come out from underneath the skirt.  It's really fun and I am having a blast hanging with the kids in my scene.

Also totally awesome-- I get to do this with Deirdre who is a Little Angel-- she spends most of the performance giving a thumbs up to the audience or pointing at fog- but it's awesome regardless.  She LOVES rehearsals-- it's exciting to see her interests emerge and even more so exciting to see her interested in some of the same kinds of things I am interested in.


so alas-- here is Daisy in her debut as Thumbs up Angel.
