Musings From A Musical Mind

Ella Enchanted

I have had the privilege of working with some AWESOME students and AMAZING teachers and parents this week – putting on “Ella Enchanted” at the Renton Civic Theater.

This has been the hardest one to put together because my best friend and co-director Laura – actually wrote the script from the movie and there were so many last minute (and not so last minute) changes to the script and music – because the thing was just TOO LONG!!  Not to mention costume, set and lighting changes.  Up until last night’s opening performance – we were not sure on things like lighting, sound and changes – so it was a bit scary.

The music is all pretty “retro” and fun for the kids to be learning stuff from the 70’s – my generation ☺  It was a blast bringing it all together to create just the right mood for each scene – and I have to say now that we have one performance “under our belt” – that the extra time and effort to pull this one off has certainly been WORTH IT!!!

To see students just “come alive” – as they believe that they can DO IT – has been worth it for each of us who love these students so much and want and believe the very best for them!!

A production like this takes an enormous amount of help from students and parents – and we couldn’t even begin to put something like this on – if it weren’t for a whole LEAGE of parent volunteers.  We are BLESSED!!

We are all pretty tired and have 3 more performances to go!  But what a blessing to be around these students again today and tomorrow – as we truly “give our best” for the people coming to see it!  There’s never a dull moment around the theater – and lots of fun moments for pictures!

Here are just a few!  Enjoy!!
