…open another.

What a great run. Everything worked, and the kids were fantastic. It was wonderful to see my pals in the orchestra once again, too. Fun. Now it’s on to Dinner Theatre.

While we don’t have a recording of the performance, we do have the awesome film footage by our actors, shot and edited by RtB’s own Tom Hanks. If you know the story from the original 1952 movie version of Singin’ in the Rain, it’s funnier, but it’s funny even if you don’t:


The audiences’ reactions were hilarious, and exactly what we hoped for. The second film is the result of the movie studio trying a “talkie” for the first time:


Great memories, and awesome work, Tom!

Alas, I must swallow the DayQuil and get ready for business as usual. Nonstop to Christmas break. Have a great week, fiends. It’s good to be back among the living, even in limited fashion. *cough hack*

PS – another great memory — the day we filmed these scenes, it was 100 degrees outside. What troupers, eh?

What a great show!! Everyone, from stage crew, actors and orchestra were brilliant! I loved every part of it and thank you all for such great work. The film clips were hysterical! Can’t wait to see what’s on tap for next year! :D

You guys put on a great show. I had a lot of fun being a part of it. Filming in the heat didn’t seem too fun at the time, but I have good memories of it now as well.

Sorry to hear you’re on DayQuil. I hope it wasn’t from me coughing whenever there was enough applause to allow it…
