No, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth! I really meant to write a post about Thanksgiving, but we had Scrooge rehearsal almost every day, plus my grandparents are here, and I never had a chance. Well, not too long ago I wrote about CYT, the Christian theater group I'm in. (click the link to read more about it) We just finished our Christmas play, Scrooge. We had 3 performances; on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. It was so much fun! I got to be friends with everyone; it's like a big family! The one thing I love is how Christ centered it is. Backstage, everyone is praying, and everyone is always so encouraging! It's a wonderful atmosphere. I played a spirit, (I'm on the front row, second one from the left)

a poor person, and a Cratchit. I'm the one in the grey dress.I loved all of my costumes! I miss my spirit hood. :) (in case anyone is wondering, you can both see AND breath through that.) By the way, the knitting Mrs. Cratchit is holding? I did it during dress rehearsal. :) We had a great cast! The man who played Scrooge has done professional acting before. Here's a picture of all of us. I'm in the back row of the people who are sitting, my brother is to the left of me, and my other brother is on the front row second from the right, the gold wiseman making a face. *sigh*
The people are wonderful, the costumes are amazing, I love acting, and backstage is so much fun! I love everything about the whole process!Actually, that's not quite true. Getting makeup on isn't bad,

but getting it OFF is so hard! It takes me at least half an hour. As far as getting nervous, I was a little on Thursday, the first performance, but not onstage, and I didn't really get nervous on Friday or Saturday. Friday we had over 700 people attend! They actually had to turn people away. It was an incredible experience! It's actually the third CYT play I've been it, but I think this one has been my favorite. I'm sad it's over, but I have The Hunchback of Notre Dame coming up in April. (if anyone lives in the area, come see it!!!) Here are some more pictures.

Walking out at the end.

It looked you had an fun time! I really enjoyed watching the play. When I saw the knitting that your "Mom" in the play was doing I had a feeling you did that. Great pictures! Keep up the posting!
