SOLC 11 of 31: Behind the Scenes

Just as magical as the show on the stage, is the choreography of the behind the scenes collaboration, timing and implementation.

Last night I watched my daughter’s best friend be the star of the Mary Poppins show at our middle school where my daughter was part of the stage crew.  I marveled at Mary Poppins (who I’ve watched grow up for the past six years), but I also marveled at the scenery, the set changes, the incredible ingenuity of making Mary Poppins “fly” three times during the show.  This is middle school, right?

Often when I go to see a show at a theater I am not only immersed in the story, but I am mesmerized by the costumes, the choreography, the scenery and the set changes. It is a seamless dance orchestrated with cast and crew that allows for the show to go on.

I hope that just as Mary Poppins and the cast still feel the glow of success from the performances this weekend that the stage crew also realizes how much of a starring role they also played. Kudos to them all!

Oh, and I’ll be singing… Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious…all day!

    To this day, one of the Broadway shows that captivated me the most was “Guys and Dolls” because the scenery, costumes, and choreography, were as incredible as the singing.
