Mary Poppins

When Stella was three, we took her to New York City to see Mary Poppins on Broadway.  It was truly a magical experience, and we all treasure the memories from that trip.  When we heard that my friend Darryl Clement was directing a community theater production of that show in Reserve, we knew that the time had come for us to audition for our first production together...
It was technically our second production together, because I was pregnant with Stella when I appeared in Oklahoma! back in 2007.  Every show is exciting, but being able to be in the show with Stella and enjoy watching her learn and grow through the process was the best thing ever.  Here's her costume for "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"...
She was a dancing statue in the park for "A Jolly Holiday"...
And the cutest chimney sweep around for "Step in Time"...
She started the show flying a kite down the center aisle...

We had lots of fans in the audience for our performances...


And Damon and Katie Nanna even delivered the costumes back to Dallas so we could grab lunch with Aunt Sarah...

The only word that sums up this cast and this experience...
And our sweet leading lady, Mary Poppins herself...
Thanks, Darryl and River Parish Community Theatre for giving us the most amazing summer together in the perfect first show for mother and daughter!
