last night after work, i met up with my parents for a birthday dinner for my mama's birthday! it was nice to be able to carve out a little time mid-week to see them and to celebrate! we're looking forward to continuing the birthday celebrations this weekend between shows!
this past weekend was another busy one in the theatre (i know, what else is new, laurie?). we prepped all week for a humongous gala on friday night and then had an irish christmas show on sunday afternoon. the christmas show went great and the audience loved it. above are a few pictures from the show. (you can see more of my photos on the theatre's facebook page here.)
for the past nine months our organization has been planning a huge gala to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the company as well as the retirement of our president after 35 years of service. it has been a very long and exhausting process. the gala was held on friday night at the theatre and was quite the event! over 300 people came for food, drinks, and entertainment. it was a lot of strategic coordination for our theatre staff in order to pull it all off.
i'm beyond glad that it's now over because we can all finally get some sleep. the night was such a crazy mess that i never even got any pictures! i only snapped one photo of the program on stage (which isn't even a good one because it's when everyone was leaving the stage) and one photo of the custom cookies from dessert hour.
