Do any of you out there like musicals? I wish every day that there would be some sort of break out song reflecting life stories.. HAHA. That's just me. I grew up on old musicals like Singin' in the Rain, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Little Shop of Horrors... you get the point. Well, last year I was in our local production of Sweeney Todd. It was a bit stressful since they recruited me only 5 weeks till opening night, and went from singing a few quintet pieces, to being 5 different characters, and learning the entire chorus music. STRESSFUL but a BLAST!!!
Yesterday I got a phone call for a part in HAIRSPRAY!!! I am soooo excited. I love the music, but the scary thing is... I HAVE TO DANCE! And in front of people... AAAHHH. I have rhythm, and I like to dance to Zumba and swing dance, but let's face it.. I'm a big gal.. and it almost looks like a whale trying to do ballet.. not pretty. So now I am even more motivated to continue shaping up, start stretching more, and shake what my momma gave me.
The production opens in November, so I do have time, but I also anticipate having my lap band surgery in late August or early September. How long did you guys have to wait after surgery to be active again? I hope that if I keep getting in shape before surgery, that afterwards, it will be easier to get back into. Thoughts?
I wish you all could come up here to see it. It is going to be amazing!!!
