Abby has really enjoyed being part of her high school musical, Bye Bye Birdie. She was the only freshman that made it into the main cast. She played Randolph, the little brother to Kim, who is a major character and was played by her friend Kastyn. She loved every rehearsal and came home tired but excited to tell us all about what they were doing. Musicals is where Abby shines. Her voice is amazing, and we were so happy that we got to see her act not only as Randolph, but also as part of the girl’s ensemble. She had a tiny solo singing part as Randolph near the end of the show and she knocked it out of the park both times we saw her perform. During the intermission, the main characters came out into the hallway so that audience members could get Conrad Birdie’s autograph and take photos with him. Madeline was so excited to do that. It was fun to have Andrew and Grandpa Al in town for the weekend so they could watch Abby perform!
Abby has loved being part of the spring musical with her theatre friends. She comes home exhausted after every rehearsal, but she is also glowing with excitement and joy. She has really had a great time bonding with the other theatre kids, and she has learned so much about being part of an amazing production. And yes, there is a little bit of drama within the drama kids but most of the time they are all laughing and having a good time doing what they love!
