The Phantom of the Opera

This image is taken from a theater I performed in on tour.  I shot it really quick because you're not supposed to take photos of the sets.  You can see the stage techs setting up for the show and the orchestra warming up.  I love the sights and sounds of live theater.  It's nostalgic.

 A couple of weekends ago, we went to Spokane with the Copelands and Andersons to see Phantom of the Opera.  My friend, Dallyn, from BYU was just recently cast as a Raoul understudy.  He was the one who let me know that Phantom was in our neck of the woods.  As a matter of fact, it was the same company that I performed with in 2001-2003.  Some of the same people I knew were still there and it was so nice to see them again.  Of course I cried when the big opening music started.  It brings back such great memories.  I really miss it!  But it was wonderful!  Dallyn took us all on a backstage tour.  That was the real highlight of the night.  Everyone just loved it.  

The kids were back at the hotel being babysat by Patty...bless her heart.

This is too cool.  Sitting on the same stage his mommy once danced on.  There's the chandelier in the background.  I so wish Tanner and Brent could have seen me in the show.  How neat would that have been.  ((sigh))

Some of my costumes back in the day.  Or rather...30 pounds ago.
