It's over! And I think it was a success!
The numbers aren't in, but I think turnout was great! And, we got feedback from lots of people that it was the best they'd seen. Since I have no real experience, or knowledge, that was very nice to hear.
I was talking to a long-time board member afterward, and he asked if we had any angry parents or kids. We didn't. Not once. So, another sign of success. I didn't offend any parents. At least not enough for them to tell me. In fact, most parents seemed very happy, and told me their kids will be back for our Spring musical. I'm not directing. My hope is to just do costumes. I will do what is needed, though.
The star of the show had a rough personal time, but she was amazing, and came up to hug me afterwards. I'm so glad the play was a good experience for her!
This was a true family affair. Bob helped out a lot. Several of the moms (that's mainly who help) were very impressed that he was so involved. He helped us put set pieces together, pull down dividers for intermissions, keep the kids under control, and even clean. They were jealous.
I'm so glad that the play went well.
Not that we have much time to rest. I decided to sign up for a local craft fair, and have had to make an inventory. I spent last Wednesday sewing stuffed owls. Tomorrow, I plan to make a milk bath mixture. And I need to put a small folding chair back together that I tried to spruce up. I may do a couple of more headache pillows. We will see. It's next Thursday. I should do a focus group on my planned items to sell.
