We had planned to get flowers for Anna for the final performance but she didn't know that. She kept saying, "Gee, people sure are getting pretty flowers. I would like to have some too but that's okay, Mommy, I really don't need any." She was so happy and surprised when we pulled this bouquet of roses out at the end of the performance.
I knew she really wanted flowers but as flowers don't last forever, I wanted her to have something as a keepsake. I found this wonderful pop-up book by Robert Sabuda, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" and gave that to her as well. It's a fantastic book. You can take a look at it here. This has been such a wonderful experience and we can't wait to do it again. MTC has their next auditions in April for a summer production. They're still determining whether they will be performing "Legally Blonde", "Seussical, The Musical", or "Dr. Doolittle". I'm so surprised because after seeing 3 of Anna's 6 shows, Lauren has told me she wants to give it a try the next time around!
