Title: Thank you!!!
Post by: Melinda on November 15, 2008, 05:28:25 am
Ok...so I'm ultra sleepy and headed to bed, but I couldn't do that without saying how amazing it was to see some of my backup girls at the show tonight! Nuncrackers is really therapy for me. I love the other nuns, the father and the wonderful kiddos!!! Since this has been a crazy week, they have been my escape. So, thank you guys for coming to something that means the world to me! It's always great to see your smiling faces during any show! You know I love you, but I have to say it again. I love all of you....the ones that were able to come and the ones that have been so mega supportive from home. You guys are a God-send!!!
 :huzzah :huzzah :huzzah

Oh...and April...grapeape...what were you laughing at?????   :nuhuh

 :rofl :rofl :rofl  The show was hilarious!  Loved it!  Loved the Village People treatment of the convent song.  :lolsign  And Sister Julia Child of God and Sister Amnesia -- priceless!   :rofl :rofl :rofl   It hit very close to home for me though.  Thanks for doing the show!  We loved it as much as you did!

So we played WII at the hotel after the show.  And heartless Ape made fun of my bowling techniques all night!   :prrr   Holly was smoking hot in boxing though -- totally Spunky!  It was such a fun evening for us!   

We all love you and support you!   :bighug :bighug :bighug    :thanks 

PS  And Ape was laughing at you!!!   :rofl :rofl :rofl :rofl :rofl :rofl

Melinda,

I'm so glad that opening night went well for you, and that you had backups there to support you.
All our love :bighug :worldhug :heartbeat

You know what, Melinda??  There are some people out here who have never met you like me for instancewho could become downright jealous of those who've seen you in person--on multiple occasions like a gazillion times.  :innocent But, I am not going to stoop that low since jealousy is such a base emotion! So, I'll just say: wasn't that an awesome gesture for some of your most terrific backups to show up and support you? :-X

So glad things went so well!!   :heartbeat  Hope you get a good night's --or day's--worth of sleep! :sleepy BTW, I do plan to see you in person in 2009!!  :cloudnine

Thanks so much Sannmiller  :bighug   Fortunately I do live close enough to drive to some events in TN to see Melinda but I do think of those who are far away and can't come.  I know it's hard for a lot of you that don't have that advantage.  But Melinda knows there are people like you out there.  She appreciates you all just as much.  Wish we had pictures for you but "The Boss" said none could be taken at the play.  Sorry  :crying

Again  :thanks

The  show was hysterical.  We have been laughing at "Join the Convent" and "Julia, Child of God" all day today.  I enjoyed the show and cast so much.

P.S. Shirley, I hope you get to meet Melinda soon!!

Jessica, I asked Gem to write a review and I believe she plans to.  But I guess she is catching up on her sleep first.

I don't know why I come back home so tired after one of these trips   :rofl

Post by: rhonda on November 18, 2008, 12:09:28 am
But Jessica, Gem writes so much better than I do.   :duh

Gem . . . wake up  :freakout    I've had two naps today in between yard work.  :rofl

I'll try to set some things up about the theatre (this is where Patrick would come in handy  :thumbsup)

The location was the same complex where Melinda sang last year in Franklin.  As I understand it, it's an old factory building that has been renovation and turned into different shops, restaurants, etc.  The play was at the section called The Boiler Room Theatre.  The entrance was very, very small, maybe 8' x 10' if that big.  And that included the ticket counter where they sold popcorn, candy, sodas, water, etc.   There was a light rain and of course everyone was trying to squeeze inside.  When we went to our seats we passed through a curtain there in this small area.  The seats were like theatre seats, cushioned and maybe 10 to a row and I'm guessing 15 rows or so.  The seats were elevated, meaning the first row was not as high up as the last row.  So I don't think there was really a bad seat in the theatre.  But Backups are known for getting the best seats, we were on the second row.  The first row had "reserved seats" except for two seats on that row.  Holly and Kelley were forced to sit there . . .lol.  We were about 8' from the stage.

The stage was smaller than I expected.  I guessing about 20' to 25' across the front and about 20' deep if that big.  Over to one side of the stage one of the actors would play a keyboard when the other actors sang a song.  Of course there were props on stage such as a fireplace, chairs, Christmas tree (made to look like a room).  At each end of the stage were steps where the actors could even come out into the aisle at each end of the row of seats.  They did this a couple times.  Over to the left top corner of the stage was a TV screen where you could see the play as well.  Not sure why that screen was there really, I think people in the back could see the stage much better than they could the size of that screen. 

After the play and we exited back through the entrance, the actors were there in line to greet us.  So as everyone filed out of the theatre they could speak to the actors.  We all got hugs from Melinda but did not really have a chance to chat.

Hope this helps some.   :dunno
