Bitten by the Theater Bug

July 2015

OK, so this summer the kids got their first substantial taste of theater. Micah was cast in the kids' ensemble of a highly professional production of Mary Poppins at the renowned 2800-seat Benedum Theater downtown! Meanwhile, Sadie enrolled in an acting camp put on by the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera and promptly landed one of the lead roles (Jojo) in their production of Seussical. There were some other show highlights we had to capture, such as Micah's first live rock concert and his improv comedy class.

Ben, Will, and Micah -- buddies from the children's ensemble.

OK, this is a random "other show" shot added into this gallery: Micah and I went to see the Indigo Girls -- his favorite!

Sadie as Jojo ... running around on stage all wide-eyed, but still shy in person. That's our girl!

Here is Jojo with Grandma.

They let me into the green room so Micah and I could get a selfie.
