Sailing Away!

Monday, May 13, 2013


Did you have a great weekend?? Were you mommas loved on by your littles? Or, perhaps you got to spend the day with your own mom? I had a wonderful brunch with my kiddos and we spent the whole weekend on a lovely 30' sailboat.


Sounds lovely, right???


Well not the whole weekend, but most of the weekend.


And not really a sailboat. More like a pirate ship.


And, we really were no where close to water. More like on a theatre stage at the Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University....



There she is....the beautiful 'Marbella' that we were honored to be a part of making.



   Our kids are performing the comic opera, 'The Pirates of Penzance', this weekend and we got to help create the pirate ship.



 She is 30' tall and 30' long and she is making her debut this weekend.  She will host 100 of our kids as they perform on WCU's stage for 4 performances. And just in case you weren't aware--this cast includes a bunch of our nationally ranked Show Choir. The same Show Choir that performed as back up singers for Foreigner {!} a few months ago, and just returned from perfoming at Carnegie Hall in NYC. Yeah, we're good like in THE BEST IN THE COUNTRY!!!   


{part of our Play Production class. Maris is the Stage Manager}


A few drop cloths, rope and some PVC, and we had the Marbella a-float!




And when you see her floating in front of the fancy pants painted backdrops along with the other set pieces -- it's pretty darn impressive!!


If you are able, please come see one of the performances and support our incredibly talented high school kids!!! Look for my Jack -- he's a pirate!
