“If I were a bird or bee in a tree
lazy as can be.
I’d sleep the day away,
as the leaves gently sway.”
Poem by Josh C.
I am so incredibly excited to be welcoming my church friends, theater friends, and friends of the arts to come see Upper Room Theater Ministries’ production of Les Miserables! I have not seen it yet, but the quality of prodcution URTM puts out are bar none the best amatuer theater I have ever seen. Love, like hate, is a very powerful word when used correctly, and I love these theater performances.
I had such a strong desire to be in this show, but had committments aside from the show that barred me from at least a cameo role. It was very heart wrenching to me to not be able to perform with these incredible singers and actors/actresses. The roles of: Javert, Marius, and Jean-Val-Jean are dream roles for any practitioner and lover of Musicals. One day that dream will be made into a reality.
But enough about my dream.. I am very proud to be associated with these wonderful people and plan on supporting them 100% of the way. You have to remind yourself as an audience member, “I am part of the reason for theater, too”. Because without an audience there would be no theater.
Congratulations to Rob Tessier (the director), John Downes (Jean-Valjean), and Jeanne Meyers (Cosette), and Julia Downes (young Cossette). You all will be flawless tomorrow and I can’t wait to give you a celebratory high 5 after the show.
Congratulations to the Cast of Les Mis and…
Go see Les Miserables at All Saints Catholic Church, Manassas VA.
A delightfully warm picture of a feline at rest. How can even a seasoned pessimist resist such an adorable moment in nature?
The wood and this lounging cat seem to work perfectly and the lighting is so natural it almost belongs on a calendar somewhere.
A beautiful photoshoot of the soon to be bride and groom.
