Mothers Day!!                   The Three Chips!
Ivy came to see the show!

Our weekend in Lexington, KY was a lot of fun. The weather was a little cooler than what we've been used to, but it was still beautiful. The show played at the 124 year-old Lexington Opera House, which is a small venue but has a huge amount of history!  The theatre was so nice to us and they held a dinner between shows on Sunday and the theatre volunteers all brought in homemade food.  The macaroni & cheese and ALL the desserts were my favorite!  Sunday was also Mother's Day.  With the help of Deb, Ellen, Tony, and Michael, I got my mom a cute little figurine of a dachshund dressed like a nurse, a card, a wristlet, and breakfast! She was really happy.  I got to meet Miles Meehan, a local actor, who played Chip in the first National Tour of Beauty and the Beast about 10 years ago! He loved the show and still remembers what a great time he had on tour too.  I had another visitor too.  Ivy, who played Pepper in the National Tour of Annie, and her dad came to see the show on Sunday.  Ivy kept a blog throughout her tour and I loved reading it every week. I knew when I got this role, that I wanted to keep a blog for my friends and family just like Ivy did! Thanks, Ivy, for a great idea and for coming to the show! Next up...Knoxville, Tennessee.
