Obviously, I need to hang with you more.

I did! Looks great! And Dave did too, or at least he commented on it. :)

I watched it and thought I’d commented, but maybe I never hit send. :x I liked it a lot! Hope to be able to see a production someday soon.

I love it all, but the cleverness of the stage management really stands out. And it serves the story well.

Glad to finally get to see this, and I loved it! Thank you, Voronwë! It's been a long time since I saw the stage version, and I'd forgotten just how much work it took to play this all out on the stage!

I think you meant to say "Thank you, Alatar!"

That was brilliant! Love how they did the horses!

A friend of mine was doing operas at Stanford when these two jewels came out - HMS Pinafore as Star Trek
- my friend was Troi

and Pirates of Penzancd as Firefly

:rotfl:

Nice; it's making me want to see that show again. My local theater hasn't done it in the eleven years I've been here, so maybe its number will come up soon...

Your town's theatre group is more professional than mine, which is good for me, because otherwise I probably wouldn't make the cut! :) And I agree about the horses; the whole cart effect is both fun to watch and convincing.

And speaking of which... they didn't learn their lesson last time, and I somehow got myself cast again. :shock: In a musical this time. :shock: :shock: Alongside my seven-year-old daughter. :shock: :shock: :shock:

It's Scrooge!, and I'm Bob Cratchit. H gets to play various children as needed (not Tiny Tim).

So someone tell me quick; how do you sing?

I haven't the least idea, I'm afraid. . . . But congratulations, Dave!
