Today I was the judge over at the Trilogy Scrapbooking Club, and those girls did an awesome job on their cards and scrapbook pages, it was hard to pick a winner, but they were all winners, I made sure they all got ribbons and a prize too, cause they all deserved it.
I wore my Phantom of the Opera t-shirt I got when Ellie and I went to the play. Someone needs to explain to the play people that they need to carry adult shirts, or perhaps they just thought girls would like the one I got, but anyway, all they had were medium and extra large, and I got the extra large and it fits like a medium. Ellie thought I did not like the play cause I had not blogged about it yet, and I was like "oh my gosh no, I loved it, I totally did not shut up on the way home with Jeff, and then I keep looking at the program". I wanna watch the movie over again. The singing was amazing and the costumes were beautiful, we could not get over how fast they could change clothes and as well as position on the stage, I mean at one part Christine and the Phantom are on the stage and then poof they are up on a ramp. We were trying to figure out if perhaps it was stand ins on the ramp while the real people went around to get in the boat. The boat scene was amazing, it looked so real, and oh man when the chandelier goes up and the music, I get shivers. I had never seen the play before only the movie and I kept asking MAMMa "do they do this or that on stage?" and she would say "yeah" and I was like how in the heck…but they totally did. I mean the tomb of her father looked like a big building up there, I would have loved to see the props with regular lighting on them to see what they really looked like. It was weird to see kissing, I mean I see it on tv and in the movies, but this was real live people kissing…yeah I'm weird, but I guess I just don't see it in real life much. The play was so awesome, and if you can get tickets, I would suggest you definitely go. I am glad that I knew the story cause some of it was hard to hear with my old deaf ears, but I would totally go again. We went to the Sunday matinee and parking was excellent, we had the best seats, and it was such a great day, and then to go back and Ed and Ellie fixed us supper, it was the best day ever. Thanks Ellie, I love you girl, thank Ed too, and give him a hug for me.
Too funny the day before we went to the play my BFF Tracy was saying a friend of hers went to Avenue PU, (come to find out I was hearing it wrong – the brochure was there in the lobby) it is actually Avenue Q, and it is with puppets and she said it was so funny, and I was like I would probably not hear it very well cause whose lips would I read?
Here is a snippet of the original actors Micheal Crawford (who I have loved since Some Mothers Do 'ave Em – gotta love the British humor), and Sarah Brightman, this was from an awards show, and I must admit I actually liked the girl that sang it at the play Ellie and I went to better then Sarah. Here it shows the boat and you would swear they were really on a lake…amazing.
For those of you that have never seen Some Mothers Do 'Ave em, I found this on Utube too.
