Now you may wonder how did I get roped into this production. Well, the directors sent out an email a couple of weeks ago asking if any of the mothers who could sing would be interested in being in the wives chorus as well. So, low and behold and I now also a wife of the king. I really may be second guessing myself soon - not sure if I am up to all the memorizing that goes along with learning the music. This is something Grace is very used to and memorizing comes quite easily to her. Me on the other hand --- not so much. Evidently the wives chorus is a fairly integral part of the production with 5 songs to learn and lots of dancing (much to Grace's disappointment). Grace loves singing and acting, but dancing ---- again not so much. But all in all I think this will be a wonderful production and something great for us to work on together all summer. Performances will be at the end of July and beginning of August. Wish us luck, or better yet break a leg.
