Abby participated in the ES musical again and was thrilled when she got a speaking part. She was cast as Ms. Smythe, the bank chairman’s secretary. Even though she only had one real speaking part she was beyond excited to be a part of the Mary Poppins Jr. musical where she got to sing and act with many of her friends who were also in the play. It was such a joy to watch her devotion to not only the mandatory rehearsals but also her commitment to practice at home. All of the kids did such a great job in all of their performances. I was fortunate enough to watch the daytime performance with Emma and Madeline where I got to take photos again for the parents. Then Mike and I enjoyed the evening show together. We are so proud of Abby for putting herself out there to participate in these amazing musicals that her ES puts on every year.
