From the last week . . . .
My Webster University Conservatory of Theatre Arts musical theatre majors joined me at home on Sunday evening for some holiday merriment.
The menu included my homemade hot pepper jelly with cream cheese and wheat crackers; homemade banana bread; Brie and smoked Cheddar; vegetarian baby quiches; and a spiced cranberry punch.
And a good time was had by all. I miss these kids whilst I’m on sabbatical.
My high school student Sydney is in her last year of voice lessons before leaving for college. Last evening she was a shining star in a cabaret performance, demonstrating command of lyrics, a winning stage presence, and a stunning soprano voice. I’m so proud of her!
Sydney is going to go far . . . .
Her friend Isabella and brother Spencer (both voice students of mine) both were in attendance to support Sydney.
I attended this year’s most excellent Muny Teens show on Friday evening, then went to Meet Me In St. Louis at the Muny.
And I got to see seven of my students on two different stages.
I am once again in Lincoln, Nebraska for a week of student engagement at the International Thespian Festival.
We started the journey on Sunday morning, arriving in Lincoln less than 8 hours later.
And then the crew from Webster enjoyed a steak dinner at Misty’s, across the street from our Embassy Suites hotel.
I’ll have photos and updates throughout the week!
