Fast forward to this fall. Auditions for "Music Man, Jr." were announced and although nervous, she was brave and went and tried out. They had more people auditioning than they needed for the show, so Evelyn wasn't sure if she would even get a part.
The following Monday they posted the cast list. Evelyn texted me when she got to school, "Mom, I GOT A PART!" She was so excited!
Rehearsals began before holiday break and the kids all worked SO hard to get ready for the show, which opened on Thursday.
I didn't get a lot of photos of her performing.. this seriously is one of about 4. Sigh...
Evelyn had a lot of fans who came to see her in the show on opening night...
Both sets of grandparents...
Great Aunt Mary
Ellie. She came to all the shows to support Evelyn!
Our beautiful girl...
My sister couldn't make it to the show, but she sent her flowers from Idaho to show her love and support.
The next 3 shows she had more fans come see her perform.
One last pre-show warm up and pep talk before the final show...Mrs. Kuechle the director did such an amazing job with these kiddos to produce an amazing show.
We are so proud of her!
Fun with friends at the cast party after the final show!
So thankful for this opportunity Evelyn had to perform. She is looking forward to next year's show!
