This fall has been quite a time of change in many aspects of my life. I changed school districts and I now work in a school with a very different population and Karen also changed districts. During the summer we took a trip to New York and got a tour backstage of a lot of major musicals thanks to some of my former students. We went with Paige, one of my star students, and her mom. Lots of fun!

We also got Melissa Youth OnSTAGE into full swing. Our first show of the season was Into the Woods, jr. Our young actors did a great job with the difficult material. We also found out how hard (and how rewarding) running a non-profit group can be. Our next production is The Best Christmas Pageant Ever based on the Barbara Robinson book. I highly recommend it for a great holiday read aloud!
