What a relief! The musical is over, and it went very well. The children performed very well, and they were relaxed and happy. The congregation and visiting guests LOVED it.
The set was really cool, too. I loved the "Pac-Man" type tracks that Heather designed as our backdrop. (The musical is about a video game, so I went retro and asked the designers for something that looked like an '80s video game.)
The opening number: "Be Strong and Courageous"
Our Conquering Knight and Lady Victory
The whole set: real world and video game
Bonnie, Molly, and me (from left to right in front) trying to be subtle about song leading (we didn't sing, we just mouthed the words)

Ashley mugs for the camera before we start. It's moments like this that make me love working with kids.
